Thursday, March 24, 2016

Three men and two women have been charged in an investigation conducted by drug enforcement officers for three law enforcement agencies that resulted in the seizure of guns, marijuana, several thousand dollars in cash, and a significant quantity of methamphetamine.

Bill Cherry, Director of the 10th Judicial District Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, Sheriff Eric Watson of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, and Chief Mark Gibson of the Cleveland Police Department said the level of cooperation that currently exists among the three agencies is one reason for the success of the investigation, and they pledged to continue working closely in the future to bring down drug traffickers in Bradley County.

Drug enforcement agents made five arrests this week. They are:

  • Elliiot Glass, 30, of Lithonia, Ga., charged with possession of Schedule I for resale, possession of Schedule II for resale, evading arrest, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
  • Shane Kelly, 29, of Riverdale, Ga., charged with possession of Schedule I for resale, possession of Schedule II for resale, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
  • Nathaniel Rainwater, 30, of Riverdale, Ga., charged with possession of Schedule I for resale, possession of schedule II for resale, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
  • Christine Moore, 48, of Cleveland, charged with possession of Schedule II for resale, possession of Schedule VI for resale, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
  • Sandy Tramble, 31, of Cleveland, charged with possession of Schedule II for resale, possession of Schedule VI for resale, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.

The officials said the joint investigation that was conducted over the span of several days netted approximately 24 pounds of methamphetamine, four pounds of marijuana, two ounces of MDMA, and over $81,000 in cash. In addition ,eight firearms have been taken off the street.

Bonds for Glass, Kelly and Rainwater were set at $250,000.  Bonds for Ms. Tramble and Ms. Moore were set at $100,000. They are to appear in General Sessions Court on March 29.

At this time the investigation is ongoing.

Roy Exum: UT A 34-Point ‘Dog

I can’t remember a time in my life when a University of Tennessee football team has been a five touchdown underdog and this comes at a time when my primary-care physician tells me, “Let’s face it … you are old.” That said, even when I look at myself naked in the bathroom mirror I ain’t as ugly as what I fear will happen in Tuscaloosa this coming Saturday.
