Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men yesterday after one of them allegedly brandished and fired a gun during a disturbance. Methamphetamine was also discovered in the vehicle they used to flee the scene.
Deputies responded to a call of shots fired on County Road 4711 at 5:14 p.m. on Wednesday. Deputies arrived on scene and was informed by witnesses that the suspects had fled the scene on foot and in a Ford pickup.
A deputy recalled observing a truck matching the description on Hwy 11 at the end of the county road. Deputies arrived at the vehicle and detained 43 year old Chun Zachary Lambert there and additional deputies located 38 year old Nader Tokleh just down the county road from the scene of the reported shooting.
Deputies learned that both suspects traveled to the scene together to pick up a vehicle. During the disturbance, a weapon was brandished by Lambert and both suspects fled. Witnesses on scene advised the driver of the Ford truck had pointed the gun and later fired the weapon.
Consent was granted to search the truck and deputies located 5.938 grams of methamphetamine inside of the vehicle. Neither Lambert or Tokleh admitted to possessing the methamphetamine that was found inside of the listed truck they both traveled inside. Both suspects were charged with the methamphetamine possession.
Lambert also drove through a metal pipe gate causing property damage. Deputies observed a pistol holster in the driveway near the gate. Deputies believe Lambert threw the firearm from the vehicle when he departed from the scene.
