The availability of methamphetamine locally was illustrated by indictments handed up Monday by a Greene County Grand Jury.

At least eight people were indicted on felony counts of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver following investigations by the 3rd Judicial District Drug Task Force, police arrests following traffic stops and after arrest warrants were served.

Others were indicted on simple possession charges or offenses relating to the drug.

In total, more than 30 people were indicted Monday by the grand jury on a variety of criminal charges.

Defendants will appear for arraignment Nov. 30 in Greene County Criminal Court.

METH CASES

Among those indicted by the grand jury were a man and woman listing the same Rogersville address who were found with nearly 78 grams of meth following a March 4 traffic stop by a sheriff’s deputy.

Brandon Curtis Morrison, 37, of 4017 Highway 66, was indicted on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a firearm during the commission of or attempt to commit a dangerous felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while in possession of methamphetamine, driving on a revoked license, driving on a revoked or suspended license-3rd offense, having no proof of vehicle insurance, introduction of a controlled substance into a penal facility and a registration law violation.

Brytnei Kay Pintze, 30, of the Highway 66 address, was indicted on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A traffic stop was made on the afternoon of March 4 for a vehicle with an invalid registration that pulled into a driveway in the 500 block of Babbs Mill Road, Deputy William Carr said in a report.

Morrison told deputies that he was meeting a friend at the address. The resident told deputies she did not know either vehicle occupant, the report said.

A records check showed that Pintze had active arrest warrants out of Hawkins County.

A search of the vehicle located a plastic bag containing 76.9 grams of methamphetamine, a loaded 9 millimeter semi-automatic pistol, four syringes and a digital scale.

A records check showed the pistol was reported stolen in Jefferson County, the report said.

Morrison denied having anything illegal on him after he was taken to the Greene County Detention Center. A pat-down search located a plastic bag containing an additional 2.9 grams of meth, the report said.

A DTF investigation into methamphetamine sales resulted in the Jan. 21 arrest of a man and woman from Bulls Gap.

Brock Jackson Taylor, 41, of 2120 Marvin Road, was indicted by the grand jury on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a Schedule II drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Amanda Marie Gilliam, 40, of Three Springs Road, Russellville, was indicted on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a Schedule II drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

DTF agents made a traffic stop in connection with an active violation of probation arrest warrant for Taylor.

As Taylor was being taken into custody, a K-9 unit on scene alerted to the vehicle Taylor and Gilliam were in, an agent’s report said.

A vehicle search yielded methamphetamine, along with 24.4 grams of marijuana. Also found were more than 100 new and used plastic bags used to package drugs, along with digital scales, glass pipes, syringes, spoons with residue and a cut straw.
