LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The execution of a narcotics search warrant led investigators to cash and drugs this morning at a home in La Follette. Around 9 am Thursday morning, Campbell County Sheriff’s Investigators with assistance from the La Follette Police Department executed a narcotics search warrant at 707 Cherry Street. Investigators detail that they had previously made several drug buys from 18-year old Quenton D. Murray at the home prompting the execution of the search warrant.
The Sheriff’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) was activated to secure the location during the execution of the warrant. Investigators recovered a large amount of methamphetamine and marijuana as well as drug paraphernalia and U-S currency.
Murray is facing charges of two counts of a schedule II (meth) controlled substance for resale, three counts of a schedule VI (marijuana) for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia and likely four counts of violating a drug free school zone (a children’s center at the former West La Follette School).
Multiple suspects were detained and questioned during the execution of the warrant. Murray’s case will be presented to the Grand Jury. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/12/2019-10:30AM)
