Meth Destroys

Shane Lewis Oakley, 30, is accused as the leader of the methamphetamine manufacturing and distribution operation, allegedly making the methamphetamine for resale at 14 Brookside Court in West Nashville where he resided , as well as Humphreys and Benton Counties.

Police estimated Oakley’s monthly income from methamphetamine sales between $12,000 and $15,000.

Teresa Ann Kingsmill, 39, Oakley’s girlfriend is also charged.

Kingsmill is also alleged to have hired the individuals who police claim went into area retail stores and bought cold medication containing the drug pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in methamphetamine.

Police believe Kingsmill went into stores to collect numerous product cards for medication containing pseudoephedrine, an ingredient for making methamphetamine. The cards are located on store shelves for customers to bring the cards to a pharmacy counter to make the actual purchase. Kingsmill allegedly gave those cards to the different individuals, referred to by police as “smurfs,’’ to purchase the pseudoephedrine products, police said.

The individuals were paid about $4 for each purchase, according to police, and were identified by surveillance and through the Tennessee Methamphetamine Information System (TMIS). State law requires store clerks to record the identification information of persons purchasing pseudoephedrine products.

Oakley is charged with initiating the process to manufacture meth, four counts of felony meth possession in a drug free school zone, engaging in a meth conspiracy and promotion of meth manufacture. He is being held in the Metro Jail.
