January 28, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Investigation by narcotics detectives into cocaine selling based out of a home at Lynn Drive in South Nashville has resulted in the arrests of two convicted felons and the seizure of more than 3 pounds of cocaine, most of which was stashed in plastic bags inside a container of “Muscle Milk” protein powder.
          
Dantwan Crump, 22, and Kevin Howard, II, 33, are jailed on multiple felony charges including possession of cocaine for resale in a drug free school zone and gun possession in the commission of a serious drug offense.  Their Lynn Drive residence is within 1,000 feet of Croft Middle School.
          
Also seized during the execution of a search warrant at the home were more than $7,000 cash thought to be cocaine proceeds, numerous items of drug paraphernalia and a loaded “Mac-10” style pistol with extended magazines.
          
Crump, who received an 8-year probated sentence last September for a felony cocaine conviction, is presently being held in lieu of $165,000 bond.  The state is expected to file a probation violation warrant against him soon.  Howard, who has multiple robbery convictions in his past, is being held in lieu of $176,000 bond.
