A major drug bust let by Gallatin Police and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation yielded thousands of dollars in cash, weapons and more than a pound of crystal meth and cocaine.
It all culminated Monday after agents with the 18th Judicial Drug Task Force executed three search warrants in Gallatin.
It’s the result of a six-month-long drug investigation where agents seized cocaine and a pound a half of crystal meth some of which was blue.
“It’s a popular trend now, they call it ‘blue meth’ in the show “Breaking Bad” with the main character Walter White making meth, become famous, trending now,” explained an official with the task force. “Not the for the first time, but it’s making it’s the way here to Sumner County.”
Once inside the home on Belvedere Drive, agents found contraband and cash hidden in a large safe.
Investigators confiscated 1.5 pounds of crystal meth and 6 oz of cocaine with an estimated street value of close to $50,000. Agents also seized a handgun, pills, steroids and $4,000 in cash.
The home was occupied by 43-year-old Joshua Fisher, who was arrested at a nearby location. Agents confirmed that Fisher sold from the house sometimes but usually opted for other, more discreet locations.
“He kept the traffic at this house pretty minimal, using other places like local motels,” the agent said.
A second search warrant was executed at a nearby storage unit where ammunition was seized.
“In the storage facility, we found vacuum-sealed ammo and found rounds for an AK-47 style weapon,” the agent told New 2.
The third location searched was on Woods Ferry Road, where agents arrest Fisher’s alleged accomplice Tyrone Davis.
Agents told News 2, just prior to the takedown, the 42-year-old man was seen holding a sock full of drugs. They believe he worked with Fisher selling drugs.
The officer saw him — there was a sock wrapped up in three other socks, and inside that was cocaine and meth,” the agent said.
Investigators say the men were not well known to police prior to the tip that spearheaded this investigation.
“They have had a history in the past, but they have not been on the radar as far as anything crazy going on,” the agent said.
Both men are in the Sumner County Jail on meth and cocaine charges. Davis is being held on a $175,000 bond. Fisher is being held on a $350,000 dollars bond.
Investigators say much of the pipeline for the drugs come from the Atlanta area.
