Tennessee police arrest 3 on drug charges

September 26, 2018


Police in Tennessee recently arrested three people for their alleged role in an apparent drug distribution operation. The arrests followed a search of a suspected drug home, for which authorities had a warrant. While all three are facing drug charges, at least one faces an additional criminal allegation of evading arrest. 

Officers had a search warrant for a suspected drug home, which they executed earlier in Sept. 2018. They claim that they announced themselves and knocked on the door before entering the home, at which point the people inside began to run. Initially, all of the suspects except for one evaded the police. That individual was the young brother of the main suspect, and he supposedly admitted to picking up illegal drugs for his sibling. 

The main suspect police were interested in was later located at his girlfriend’s home, where he was arrested. Authorities claim they found vials of THC in the girlfriend’s purse and arrested her as well. At last update, all three were still in police custody. It is not clear if police intend to pursue any other of the other individuals who fled the home during the search. 

Drug charges are a serious matter under Tennessee criminal law, and a conviction can lead to lengthy prison sentences and steep fines. Early preparation is often extremely helpful when constructing a solid criminal defense. By taking timely action, defendants can usually develop a better understanding of their charges as well as any methods through which they may achieve the best possible outcome.
