Five Lenoir City residents were arrested June 24 after a drug bust by the 9th Judicial Drug Task Force.

DTF agents found Randy Dean Dattilio, 65, Stacey Eugene Branson, 52, Kristian Nicole Hatcher, 34, James Martin Kennedy, 37, and Ginger Gail Neely, 53, at a residence on Turman Drive after executing a narcotics search warrant, DTF agent Cody Fritts wrote in a report.

In the room Dattilio and Hatcher were occupying, agents found a small purse on Dattilio’s bed containing a bag of 0.5 grams of methamphetamine and a bag of 0.5 grams of heroin. Thirty-one yellow capsules identified as gabapentin were found in one of Dattilio’s shirt pockets hanging up in his room. Agents also found multiples baggies, digital scales, meth pipes and syringes, Fritts wrote in a report.

Branson and Neely were found in a bedroom with a bottle on the dresser containing 3.5 grams of “white powder heroin/fentanyl, a bowl with 1 gram of orange powder heroin/fentanyl and 11 yellow capsules identified as gabapentin,” Fritts wrote in a report.

“Agents watched the in-car video, which showed Randy Dattilio remove the drugs from his shorts and use both fentanyl and methamphetamine while in the back of the van,” Fritts wrote in the report. “He then passed both drugs to James Kennedy who also ingested them both. Dattilio was then seen shoving the capsule that contained the fentanyl into the seat of the van. Kennedy is then seen throwing the bag of the methamphetamine to the back of the van.”

Knoxville man jailed for potA Knoxville man was arrested June 24 on drug charges after having drugs delivered to a Lenoir City business.

DTF was contacted when a suspicious package containing what was believed to be narcotics was delivered to a business on West Broadway. DTF agents April Farmer and Jamie Ketner found four vacuum-sealed bags filled with marijuana and three vacuum-sealed bags filled with THC wax, Farmer wrote in a report.

The agents decided to seal the box back up and place it outside the business to see if anyone tried to pick it up. Shammond Kefla Dave, 21, showed up a short time later and placed the box in his SUV.

Dave was taken into custody and LCSO Lt. Michael Watkins had his K-9 conduct a “free air search” around the vehicle, Farmer wrote in a report.

The K-9 alerted on the SUV and after a search agents found another postal box in the back seat containing four more bags of marijuana and three bags of THC wax. The total weight of the marijuana was 3,800 grams, and the total weight of the THC wax was approximately 3,100 grams.

Dave was charged with manufacture, sale, delivery or resale of a Schedule VI substance and released on $60,000 bond.
