The Macon County Sheriffs Department and the Red Boiling Springs City Police were involved in methamphetamine arrests on Tuesday, August 7th, one conducted by RBS on Willis Knight Drive and a combined effort of the two departments on the Union Camp Road.
RBS Police Chief Terry Tuck stated that his department assisted DCS with a drug exposed child referral last Tuesday at the 209 Willis Knight Drive residence of 43-year-old Brenda King, in Red Boiling Springs. Once inside they asked for permission to search the home where they discovered marijuana along with paraphernalia. Brandon Dozier, age 24, was also at the location.
However, after gathering more information Officer Jimmy Morgan charged Brenda Gayle King with promotion of methamphetamine manufacture and Chief Tuck charged Brandon Lee Dozier with possession of a Schedule VI drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and promotion of methamphetamine manufacture. “The local Wildlife Game Warden was called as well,” said Chief Tuck, “after we noticed a large amount of freshly dug ginseng, which is illegal until the season opens on September 1st.”
The two individuals were transported to the Macon County Jail where bond was set at $50,000 for Brenda King and $51,500 for Brandon Dozier, with a General Sessions Court date set for both on September 5.
According to Macon County Sheriff Mark Gammons, 41-year-old James Wesley Lyons, of 3549 Union Camp Road, was on state probation involving meth offenses. In a combined effort with the Red Boiling Springs Police, information gathered from both departments led to a search of his home on Tuesday afternoon where evidence was discovered involving a meth operation.
“Mr. Lyons has been making and cooking meth,” said Sheriff Gammons, “and he is charged with 23 counts of intent to manufacture methamphetamine.”
Detective Donnie Crawford charged Mr. Lyons and he is being held for court which is scheduled for August 22nd.
Sheriff Gammons says this an ongoing investigation and anyone with information involving illegal drugs in the county, to please call the Macon County Sheriffs Department at 666-3325.
