La Follette Police continue ramping up its efforts against illegal drug activity.  Those efforts continued today after a busy day on Friday.

LPD’s Special Response Team executed a search warrant on Friday morning in west La Follette.  On Tuesday afternoon, units were in east La Follette.

Officers were at the home of Kyle Mallicote at 308 and 310 South Cumberland Avenue executing a search warrant after a several weeks investigation.  One officer tells WLAF that felony amounts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found.

The 59-year old Mallicote (orange shirt) was not arrested today.  Police say he was cooperative and very nice.

The case is likely to be presented to the Grand Jury.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/04/2018-6PM)
