Recent MNPD drug arrests

The Metro Nashville Police Department made numerous arrests in June for drug-related offenses near the neighborhood. They include:
June 27: West Precinct detectives charged 32 persons as the result of investigations on 40th Avenue North at Charlotte Avenue, 12th Avenue South at Wade Avenue, 12th Avenue South at Wedgewood Avenue, 27th Avenue North at Booker Street, 37th Avenue North at Charlotte Avenue, Old Hickory Boulevard at Charlotte Pike, and 37th Avenue North at Park Avenue. Seized were 23.5 grams of cocaine, 85 grams of marijuana, and 25 Ecstasy pills.

June 20: West Precinct detectives charged 36 persons as the result of investigations on 14th Avenue South at Horton Avenue, 40th Avenue North at Charlotte Avenue, 14th Avenue North at Jefferson Street, 24th Avenue North at Clifton Avenue, 12th Avenue South near Summit Avenue, 12th Avenue South at Wedgewood Avenue, and the 500 block of Hicks Road. Seized were seven grams of cocaine, two pounds of marijuana, and on Ecstasy pill.

June 11: Metro police narcotics detectives on Tuesday dismantled a lucrative heroin distribution organization by shadowing a deliveryman as he made his rounds throughout West Nashville. A total of 19 persons were arrested Tuesday, including 15 customers. The investigation shows that buyers of heroin would call a “dispatch” number, which rang to a home at 425 Cedarcreek Trail in South Nashville. The buyer would then be directed to one of a number of public parking lots on White Bridge Road, Charlotte Avenue, or in Bellevue. After each sale Tuesday, undercover detectives would move in and arrest the buyer(s) while other detectives continued to shadow the deliveryman. The customers bought an average of one gram of heroin each for about $140. Those arrested included buyers living on Westlawn Avenue and Acklen Park Drive.
Thanks, MNPD, for your efforts to reduce crime in West Nashville.
