LPD Makes Huge Drug Bust

Do you know why I don’t mind posting this so-called bad news about LaVergne? Because drugs are rampant in EVERY community in the nation.  You never know what you’ll find behind someone’s closed door and the drug problem is found in small towns, medium towns, rural areas, big cities… everywhere.

So I’m posting this story with PRIDE in our local police department. KUDOS to you for your undercover work and bringing these arrests to fruition.

From the Tennessean,

The La Vergne Police Department arrested eight people this morning on multiple drug charges including heroin and prescription drugs. In addition, officers conducted two home searches and found even more drugs.

During the operation, offenders brought children to deals and dealt the drugs near elementary schools and churches.  Some of the drugs bought or found were lortab, xanax, suboxone, morphine, percocet and heroin.

Another side note, we did receive photos from the city of people in handcuffs, but I’m not publishing them here.  Yes, they may be under arrest, but I don’t want to be the one to plaster their faces all over the internet before they’re proven guilty.

    I'm wondering if this is a connection with the shootings on Stoneridge?

    The link to The Tennessean article no longer works, but the WSMV one is still okay. Also, look at http://www.newschannel5.com for another piece and a list of everyone arrested.

    I was shocked to find out how close my house is located to a former meth lab. My children walk right past one of these locations every day on their way to school.
