Macon Woman Smuggles Drugs Into Trousdale Prison

A Macon County woman has been charged with smuggling drugs into the Trousdale Turner Correctional Center, in Hartsville, on four separate occasions.


According to the complaint filed by Tennessee Department of Corrections Special Agents Ramon Sherrell and Nathan Miller, on June 16, 33-year-old Teaoni Natalie Shavers, of Days Road in Lafayette, admitted that on four separate occasions (March – June, 2017) she smuggled marijuana and cocaine into the Trousdale Turner Correctional Center, which is located at 140 Macon Way in Hartsville, Tn. 

The affidavit of complaint says that Shavers stated at the request of inmate Ladarius Reffegee, she met a woman who supplied her with at least 18 pre-wrapped insertion pellets to be concealed and smuggled into the prison, and she was paid approximately $5,700.

There were also text messages from a confiscated cell phone found on inmate Reffegee which included meeting arrangements with the woman supplier, concealment methods, delivery dates and talks of drug content.

Teaoni N. Shavers, of 405 Days Road, in Lafayette, was booked into the Trousdale County Jail under a $50,000 bond. A Trousdale County General Sessions Court date is set for June 23.
