Teamwork Nets Over 600 lbs of Marijuana
Dec 15, 2022 - Deputies with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Unit and Narcotics Unit worked on a marijuana trafficking case that led them to a storage facility in Lincoln County, Tennessee. Shortly thereafter investigators teamed up with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and Fayetteville Police Department to further investigate. MCSO SCU K9 Maverick was deployed and alerted on a storage unit suspected of containing marijuana. A search warrant was obtained and then executed. During the search, Sheriff’s deputies located over 600 pounds of marijuana. This seizure was made possible by the teamwork of all the listed agencies which highlights the benefits of law enforcement agencies working cohesively for a common goal. This investigation is ongoing and we do anticipate more arrests to follow.
