On October 30, 2014 HCSO Deputies from the Patrol Division and Criminal Investigation Division Detectives initiated a drug investigation and search at 113 Harbor Circle in New Johnsonville. During the search several drugs were seized including Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Diazepam and Marijuana. Along with the drugs Deputies recovered packaging materials and other items associated with the sale/distribution and delivery of illegal drugs. The suspect, Joel Wayne Allen was arrested without incident and booked at the Humphreys County Jail on the following charges:
Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell/Deliver/Distribute, Class C Felony
Possession of Schedule IV Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell/Deliver/Distribute, Class D Felony
Possession of Schedule VI Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell/Deliver/Distribute, Class E Felony
Possession of Unlawful Drug Paraphernalia, Class A Misdemeanor
The diversion of powerful prescription drugs continues to a problem throughout our county and the state. These drugs are very dangerous and have resulted in numerous overdose deaths across the state and here in Humphreys County. Anyone with information related to the illegal sale of these or any drug is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office and ask to speak with a Detective where you can remain anonymous if you desire. The New Johnsonville Police Department also assisted with the search and arrest.
