Several Persons Sentenced Following 'Meth' Convictions

Several people charged with manufacturing or possessing the powerful illegal drug methamphetamine recently have entered guilty pleas in Greene County Criminal Court.

Among them were a husband and wife who formerly resided in a rented Rheatown Road residence where what officers said was an illegal methamphetamine laboratory was found last fall.

Court records indicate that Sarah Louise Tarlton, 39, formerly of 3691 Rheatown Road, Chuckey, and her husband, pleaded guilty on May 7 to manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of an item with an altered serial number and possession of a weapon in commission of an offense.

She was fined $3,100 and ordered to pay $359 restitution to the Greene County Sheriff's Department's Meth Task Force and sentenced to three years in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections, court records show.

Sarah Tarlton was given credit for time served.

On May 14, Sarah Louise Tarlton's husband, Sammy Tarlton, 38, of the same address, pleaded guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a weapon in commission of a felony and possession of an item with an altered serial number.

Sammy Tarlton also was fined $3,100 and ordered to pay $359 restitution to the Sheriff's Department's Meth Task Force and sentenced to three years in custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections.

Tarlton, who will be eligible for release on parole after he completes 30 percent his sentence, was given credit for time already served.

A report filed by Lt. Ralph Roderick last November indicated that Sammy Tarlton, 38, and Sarah L. Tarlton, 39, had been charged in connection with the Friday, Nov. 21, discovery of two alleged "meth" labs at their rented residence.

When the search warrant was served last Nov. 21, according to Lt. Roderick's report, officers found a "meth lab" in a bedroom inside the one-story residence.

A second "meth lab" was found inside a small outbuilding that was located behind
the residence, Roderick's report stated.

Outside the Tarltons' rented Rheatown Road residence last Nov. 21, County Sheriff Steve Burns said officers clad in protective suits and wearing self-contained breathing apparatus had found evidence that methamphetamine had been made both inside the house and in the small, log outbuilding behind the residence.

January Case

The first of four defendants charged in a January 2004 methamphetamine case pleaded guilty in Criminal Court on May 14.

Jennifer Michelle Owens, 20, of 406 Elk St., pleaded guilty to child neglect and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver and was fined $2,000 and was sentenced to three years in custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections, with a 30 percent release eligibility date, credited for time served and ordered to provide a DNA sample.

On May 21, Norma Lee Boone, 35, of 425 Midway Road, Mosheim, pleaded guilty to facilitation of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell or deliver it and was fined $2,000 and sentenced to two years and one day in custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections.

Boone, who will be eligible for release on parole after she completes 30 percent of her sentence, also received credit for time served.

Also on May 21, William Neal Boone, 30, of 425 Midway Road, Mosheim, pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell it in connection with the same case. He was fined $2,000 and sentenced to three years in the county jail, from which he will be eligible for release on parole after he completes 30 percent of his sentence.

William Boone also was given credit for time already served.

A fourth person charged in connection with the January discovery of an alleged meth lab and also charged in connection with an earlier traffic stop pleaded guilty on May 28.

Lonnie Jay Owens II, 23, of 109 Fry St., pleaded guilty to driving on a suspended license, reckless endangerment, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to manufacture and child neglect and was fined $4,750 and sentenced to three years in custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections, court records show.

Lonnie Jay Owens II, who will be eligible for release on parole after he completes 30 percent of his sentence, also was credited for time served.

Owens had been charged by sheriff's deputies on Dec. 5, 2003, with driving on a suspended license, reckless endangerment of his 3-year-old daughter and unlawful carrying of a weapon after a pursuit on a county roadway.

He also was indicted by a Greene County grand jury in early May on a charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver it on Jan. 31, 2004.

William Neal Boone, 29, of 425 Midway Road, and Norma Lee Boone, 35, of the same address had been charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver it on Jan. 31, 2004, after officers found an alleged methamphetamine laboratory at a Fry Street residence.

Jennifer Michelle Owens, 20, also had been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver it on Jan. 31, 2004, in connection with the discovery of the alleged Fry Street meth lab.

Jennifer Owens also had been indicted by a Greene County grand jury in May on a charge of child neglect of her 1-year-old daughter. The charge was placed in connection with a Jan. 31, 2004, incident in which she and the child were found by sheriff's deputies inside an unheated car off Lonesome Pine Trail in sub-freezing temperatures.

Officers following up on that discovery found what they believed to be a meth lab inside the Fry Street residence where she formerly had resided.

Unrelated Case

In an unrelated case, on May 19, Fred Raymond Clark, 49, of 2187 Middle Creek Road, Afton, pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver it and possession of methamphetamine with intent to
deliver it. He was fined $4,150 and sentenced to three years in the county jail.

Clark, who will be eligible for release on parole after he completes 30 percent of his sentence, received credit for time already served.
