Searches uncover meth at 2 addresses in Tennessee

Six people are facing methamphetamine-related charges after investigators executed search warrants at two separate locations in Tennessee on March 7. News sources report that Weakley County Sheriff's Office deputies conducted the searches in a motel room in Martin and a house in Dresden. According to law enforcement officials, local police assisted the sheriff's office with each search. Officials say that the meth that was discovered in the Dresden home has a street value of approximately $9,000.

Authorities began searching the motel room at 8 a.m. and reportedly found meth, marijuana and digital scales on the premises. One 35-year-old woman and two 37-year-old men who were present in the room were subsequently taken into custody. They were each charged with possession of meth with the intent to resell, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At 10 a.m., a search of the residence on West Main Street in Dresden reportedly revealed 3.5 ounces of meth, a small amount of marijuana, drug pipes, digital scales and $1,171 cash. Following the search of the home, authorities took a 38-year-old woman, a 36-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man into custody on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of meth with intent to resell. Officials seized the cash and an automobile.

Drug charges are a serious matter in Tennessee, and a conviction may carry life-altering consequences. Individuals who are charged with drug crimes in this state may find it beneficial to seek a case review with a criminal defense attorney. Dependent upon each unique set of circumstances, the attorney may work to identify deficiencies in the prosecution's evidence that could lead to a dismissal. In some situations, the attorney may be able to negotiate with the state for lesser penalties.
