Phillip Dale Ellis Arrested
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team executed a warrant early this afternoon at approximately 12:30 p.m. at 13608 Jones Gap Road. The arrest of Phillip Dale Ellis stems from an incident that took place in Chattanooga yesterday, where Mr. Ellis allegedly pointed a gun at a employee of Republic parking and then drove thru the parking gate.
During the commission of the arrest and while securing the residence, deputies observed what appeared to be marijuana plants. HCSO Narcotics detectives were notified and responded to the scene. A search warrant was obtained for the property and a large amount of marijuana plants were found along with the equipment used to assist growing marijuana.
Phillip Dale Ellis was transported to the Hamilton County Jail where he was charged with Aggravated Assault, Vandalism, Manufacturing Marijuana and Felony Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
