A small Tennessee town held a big round-up last week. Numerous law enforcement offices as well as the U.S. Postal Service worked together to conduct the arrests. A startling 34 arrests were made, which is quite impressive considering the town has a population of less than 6,000 individuals. The defendants were arrested on a variety of drug charges.
Sometimes, a simple trip to the store can take a strange turn. That's what happened to shoppers at a Tennessee Walmart who got an unusual "goodbye" as they left the store's parking lot last Friday evening. According to reports, police were called after receiving complaints that a man was exposing himself to cars exiting the store's parking lot. The man now faces drug charges.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been busy recently investigating one of the largest incidents of gun theft it has ever worked. Reportedly, 367 guns were taken from a Tennessee UPS facility on a Sunday. The guns had been shipped from their manufacturing center and were at a UPS distribution facility in Memphis when, according to the authorities, the theft occurred. The stolen firearms were .22 caliber and .380 caliber Ruger guns.
The majority of arrests that happen in any community are the arrests of local residents. There are times, however, when people find themselves facing legal trouble far from home. That is the case with four men who were traveling through Tennessee this week and are now facing drug charges.
