13 Dirtballs Indicted In Dyer County TN On Federal Crack Cocaine Trafficking Charges
JACKSON, Tenn. -- Edward L. Stanton III, United States attorney for the Western District of Tennessee; A. Todd McCall, special agent in charge of the Memphis Division of the FBI; Steve Isbell, chief of police for the Dyersburg Police Department; and Jeff Box, sheriff of Dyer County, announced Monday the unsealing of an indictment charging 13 suspects with federal drug trafficking violations. The suspects were arrested early Monday during a roundup conducted by multiple federal (the FBI, DEA, ATF and U.S. Marshals Service), state (Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, 24th Judicial District Drug Task Force, and Tennessee Highway Patrol), and local law enforcement agencies (Dyer County Sheriff's Department, Dyersburg Police Department, Jackson Police Department, Lexington Police Department, and Madison County Sheriff's Department).
The indictments were returned by a federal grand jury in Jackson on Jan. 20, 2015, but remained under seal until today's arrests. Each indictment contained counts alleging violations of the Controlled Substances Act. The suspects arrested during the operation were:
* Troy Richard Anderson Jr., 25 (already in state custody)
* Tyler Demond Armstrong, 24, of Dyer County
* Bree Anna Blalock, 26, of Dyer County
* Tyrus Ray Blalock, 45, of Dyer County
* Amy Hurt Dew, 50, of Dyer County
* Antonia Marshell Jones, 30, of Dyer County
* Marlos Lekeith Mann, 39 (already in state custody)
* William Frank Perry Jr., 44, of Dyer County
* Anthony Lee Randaul, 36, of Dyer County
* Steve Lee Roby, 44, of Dyer County
* Kenny Charles Vaughn, 37 (already in federal custody)
* Terrance Terone Warren, 49, of Dyer County
During the course of this investigation, law enforcement officials have seized illicit narcotics, U.S. currency, firearms, and drug paraphernalia. The charges in the indictments stem from the illegal activity of selling, manufacturing, and distributing, powder cocaine, crack cocaine, and marijuana, as well as the unlawful possession of ammunition by convicted felons. "These individuals are charged with serious drug crimes, and the consequences they face if convicted are also serious," said U.S. Attorney Stanton. "Illegal drug trafficking and the violence that often accompanies it are a plague upon our communities. My office will vigorously pursue any and all involved in these illegal activities."
"These indictments and arrests are the result of the cooperation of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and the hard work of the men and women from all of the agencies involved," said Special Agent in Charge A. Todd McCall.
"The FBI is dedicated to continuing to work with our partners to target, investigate and bring to justice those who prey on our community." "I am grateful for our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners for their assistance. We are a team that is committed to suppress the criminal element in our community," stated Chief of Police Isbell. "I would also like to recognize the men and women of the Dyersburg Police Department for their hard work. It is truly their work and dedication that has made this a successful operation."
"This Task Force partnership with both our sheriff's office, police department and the FBI has been beneficial in providing the additional resources needed to make these type of cases targeting illegal activity," stated Sheriff Box. "This operation is another example of how well our agencies work together in this partnership to attack drugs and criminal activity. Protecting our citizens of this community from crime is our highest priority. We will continue to work with our partners to detect, investigate and prosecute those who seek to advance criminal activity. I want to commend our TFO's, FBI agents and the U.S. Attorney's Office for being a dedicated team in the support of making Dyersburg and Dyer County a safer community."
