May, 15, 2013, CLARKSVILLE, TENN. – Agents with the 19th Judicial District Drug Task Force dismantled a methamphetamine lab on Bob White Drive, where numerous one-pot method labs were found.
“We executed a search warrant on the home and found several methamphetamine lab components,” said Captain Jesse Reynolds, Director of the 19th JDDTF.
While attempting to secure the home, agents found three pit bull dogs on the property and three puppies. Two of the adult dogs began to fight, and one of the agents attempted to separate them and one of the dog’s teeth grazed the agents’ skin.
The agent received medical attention and was medically cleared.
The animals weren’t harmed, and were released to Animal Control.
As with every structure where methamphetamines are found, the property was condemned by drug agents.
Clarksville Fire Rescue set up a decontamination area for the agents and suspects involved, and Montgomery County EMS was on hand to ensure the safety of those on scene.
Deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office also assisted at the scene.
“As always, this was a great multi-agency team effort,” Reynolds said. “We always appreciate the support of the other agencies when we’re dealing with something like this.”
Share the Road!
Motorcycles are vehicles with the same rights and privileges as any motor vehicle on the roadway.
All motorists are reminded to safely "share the road" with motorcycles and to be extra alert to help keep motorcyclists safe. Motorcyclists are reminded to make themselves visible to other motorists.
Riding and Alcohol DO NOT MIX!
Alcohol is a major contributor to motorcycle crashes and the resulting injuries and fatalities. Alcohol affects those skills essential to riding a motorcycle - balance and coordination. So it plays a particularly big role in motorcycle fatalities.
In 2011, 30% of all fatally injured motorcycle riders had BAC levels of .08 or higher. An additional 7% had alcohol levels of BAC .01 to .07.

The 19th Judicial District Drug Task Force collected over 302 pounds of unused medications from the public during a drug take-back initiative Saturday.
At Walgreens on Madison Street, agents collected citizens unused drugs to dispose of safely as part of the program, a partnership with DEA.
“We want to thank everyone that came out and supported this program and helped us keep these drugs out of the wrong hands,” said Captain Jesse Reynolds, DTF director. “We doubled the amount of drugs we seized last year.”
Reynolds said the DTF will continue the initiative in the future, as long as there is a need for it in the community.
CLARKSVILLE, TENN. – Deputies, assisting servers at Logan’s Roadhouse in Clarksville, raised $1,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as part of the Tip-A-Deputy program last weekend.
“Through the program, deputies will sort of shadow servers, assisting them to help customers, and at the end of the meal, customers can choose to donate to that deputy, and the money goes to our cause,” said Chief Deputy John Smith.
According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Web site, cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system. This can lead to life-threatening lung-infections and the break-down of the pancreas.
The foundation focuses on development of new drugs to fight the disease, improving quality of life for those with cystic fibrosis, and, ultimately, to find a cure.
“I appreciate the management and staff at Logan’s Roadhouse for their continued partnership in yet another successful Tip-A-Deputy Program,” said Sheriff John Fuson. “Thank you to all of the patrons of Logan’s who contributed to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Your contributions are very much in need and very well appreciated.”
