SHARE:

On Tuesday May 9, 2017, following months of Crossville Narcotics Detective’s long term investigations on illegal Narcotics Distribution, criminal indictments were handed down on multiple suspects in Crossville and Cumberland County. Following in-depth investigations and undercover operations, these indictments are another example of the Crossville Police Department’s resolve to eliminate illegal narcotics in our community. Many of the indictments were successfully served.

Additionally, there was an execution of a search warrant and the seizure of cash and illicit narcotics at 94 Lakyn Drive, while indictments were being served on the residents. This is the second such drug related search warrant executed at this location, involving the residents, within the last year.

Indictments were served along with a search warrant. Multiple narcotics and firearms were seized. Additional felony charges, on the Ashburn’s, are pending the outcome of the completed investigation and their presentation to the Cumberland County Grand Jury.

Four additional people were named, in the recent indictments and are currently incarcerated in various penal institutions.

Lastly, there are still three suspects who remain at large. All have felony indictments on file. If you have any information on the location of these wanted people, please contact the Crossville Police Department at 931-484-7231.

Participating in the operation were the Crossville Police Department, 13th Judicial Drug Task Force, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and the HIDTA / TBI Drug Task Force.
