Five charged in Bradley County meth lab busts

Posted: Updated:

BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- A man on bond for cooking meth in his home on Poplar Street is one of two people arrested Tuesday after they entered the residence in violation of a quarantine order and were discovered with an active methamphetamine lab.   

Detectives working the Special Investigations Unit received information that Cleveland Police officers had observed some activity that potentially violated the notice of quarantine posted five days earlier.   

Danny Lee Davis, 48, of 933 Poplar Street and Jimmy Joseph Newell, 36, of Bluegrass Circle, were charged with the manufacture of methamphetamine and violating the quarantine. Davis was hiding in the attic when he was arrested.   

On October 18 the Bradley County Sheriff's Office S-I-U executed a search warrant at the Poplar Street location.  They arrested Davis and three other individuals found to be operating a one pot meth lab in a back bedroom. 

Also present were Jennifer Lea Rayburn Standifer, 34, of Cates Lane; Pansy Renee Beard, 33, of 933 Poplar Street; and Thomas James Wilson, 28, of Decatur Tennessee.  They have each been charged with initiation of the process to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

In addition Davis was charged with criminal simulation

Detectives found most of the components that are needed to cook meth. Also in the home were various items of computer-related equipment, such as laptop computers, printers and jump drives.  Also found were multiple counterfeit one hundred dollar bills, multiple washed bills of legitimate US currency, and paper used in the counterfeiting of currency.

Detectives are working with the U.S. Secret Service regarding additional charges related to the counterfeiting operation.

Newell and Davis have been arraigned on Tuesday's charges. They are being held without bond until their next hearing on November 1 in General Sessions Court.
