$40,000 of crystal meth seized

Almost $40,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine and about $100 worth of heroin were seized from a Murfreesboro man after a one-month investigation, a Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Bureau supervisor said last week.

Suspect Dustin James Thompson, 32, of Old Lascassas Road was charged with manufacturing, delivering, selling or possessing Schedule I drugs for resale, four counts of felony possession of schedule II drugs for resale, maintaining a dwelling for the use of drugs, unlawful possession of a weapon in the commission of a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Detectives confiscated more than 14 ounces of crystal methamphetamine valued at $40,000, about one gram of heroin valued at $100 and 567 grams of an unidentified white powder, said Detective Sgt. Will Holton. The white powder was sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s laboratory for identification.

A loaded handgun was seized as part of the case, the sergeant said.

Thompson is being held on $72,000 bond at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. A hearing is scheduled in May in General Sessions Court.
