July 17, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday’s seizure of more than 5 ½ pounds of crystal methamphetamine sent from California to Nashville is one of the largest to be intercepted by Nashville Police in recent years.
After receiving information that the crystal meth would be arriving at a local shipping business, narcotics detectives from the Specialized Investigations Division set up surveillance to identify the person or persons who would claim it. Jeffrey Grammer, 49, accepted the package and then got into a GMC Yukon being driven by Deanna Conners, 35. The SUV was stopped after it traveled a short distance. Found inside, in addition to the parcel, were $12,612 cash and a black bag containing red phosphorous, which is used in meth manufacture, along with small baggies containing meth residue.
Grammer, of Bells, Tennessee, and Conners, of Henderson, Tennessee, are each charged with possession of meth for resale, conspiracy to distribute meth and promotion of meth manufacture. They are jailed in lieu of $257,000 bond each.
