RBS Man Faces Second Set of Meth Charges

Timothy Ray Gravins, 37, of Whitaker Circle in Red Boiling Springs, was arrested on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and selling methamphetamines last Saturday, July 17th, when officers from the Macon County Sheriffs Department executed a search warrant at his residence.

According to detective Bill Cothron, officers discovered a substantial amount of meth inside the home, along with paraphernalia affiliated with selling the lethal drug.

Last week’s raid on Gravins’ home was not the first time officers have discovered illegal drugs inside the residence, however. In fact, Gravins was charged with selling meth in April of this year when a search of his property revealed that he was holding approximately one pound of meth (a street value of $23,000) and numerous items believed to have been traded for the drug, including five guns, knives, a pick-up truck, 11 smoking pipes, syringes, $3,450 in cash, flat screen televisions, an air compressor, toolboxes and a DVD player.

Back in April, Macon County Sheriff Mark Gammons called the drug seizure “one of the biggest meth busts we’ve ever had in Macon County.”

Court proceeding are ongoing regarding the April charges against Gravins.

He is currently being held at the Macon County Jail on $300,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on July 21st.

Detective Cothron referred to last week’s bust as a “substantial find in the war on drugs in Macon County.”
