Comments Off on Methamphetamine labs found at Wilson County business, Roadrunner Transportation

Wilson County Sheriff’s deputies found and secured two methamphetamine lab cooking sites at a Wilson County business after receiving a tip from an employee at Roadrunner Transportation on Tuesday.

Upon arrival at the scene at 135 Maddox Drive, Deputies Sgt. Kyle Wright, Mike Warren, and Chris Brandenburg found two separate locations where methamphetamine had been cooked.

The deputies secured the area and called methamphetamine lab technicians to quarantine the property in accordance with Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation state laws.

Wilson County Sheriff’s Office Detective Reich, a member of the Tennessee Methamphetamine & Pharmaceutical Task Force, was originally called to the scene. Detective Jeremey Reich asked Mike Justice, director of Lebanon Public Safety, for assistance.

Director Justice sent a clandestine lab team to help retrieve and dispose of the hazardous materials and chemicals.

“Director Justice’s team and WEMA were instrumental in ensuring all precautions and safety requirements were taken to prevent further exposure as required by state law,” according to a statement from the Sheriff’s office.

The property remains under quarantine.

Detective Reich is continuing the investigation and upon completion will present all evidence pertaining to this case to the Wilson County Grand Jury for potential indictments related to narcotics.

Sheriff Bryan has been instrumental in assisting with developing a joint Wilson County Methamphetamine Task Force and has recently assigned several members of the Sheriff’s office to this team. This multi-agency team, which was recently formed, includes Lebanon police and WEMA,

“We are proud of this new task force and appreciate the collaboration all of our county agencies have provided to combat this growing problem,” Sheriff Bryan said. “The team was very effective and professional.”
