Four Persons Charged with Manufacturing Meth
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
An investigation into illegal drug sales by Madison Precinct’s Crime Suppression Unit led to Wednesday afternoon’s discovery of items used in a meth lab and the arrests of four persons at 245 A Clovernook Drive.
During the execution of a search warrant by Hermitage Precinct undercover detectives, multiple chemicals used in the production of methamphetamine were observed and the residence was quickly evacuated.
The following four residents were each charged with manufacturing meth:
• Roger Dale Ferrell, 46
• Mary Kathleen Vera, 47
• James Walter Dinkins, 38
• Mikel Lee Randolph, 59
Ferrell and Vera each have a prior conviction for initiating the process to manufacture meth. All four are being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
Eight officers who entered the residence and all four residents were fully decontaminated by the Nashville Fire Department. The chemical components were removed. The residence is under quarantine due to the highly toxic nature of the manufacturing process.
