ORT: Task Force raids yield drugs, weapons, arrests

According to our partners at Oak Ridge Today, Anderson County’s 7th Judicial District Crime Task Force was busy last week, conducting a pair of raids on homes in Oak Ridge.

The first occurred on Monday, January 9th, when members of the task force served a narcotics-related search warrant at a home on Jasper Lane. Agents reported recovering over 12 grams of what field-tested positive as fentanyl, a little over three grams of field-tested meth, and a 9mm pistol, as well as Suboxone and alprazolam pills, psychedelic mushrooms, over 50 grams of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

ORT reports that 40-year-old Jegarian Cobb and 42-year-old Danielle Brown were arrested on numerous drug charges. Cobb, a convicted felon, was also charged with firearm-related offenses. Both were scheduled to appear in court this morning (1/17/23).

The second raid occurred on Tuesday, January 10th at a home on Utica Circle, where agents seized pills and marijuana packaged for resale. Agents also reported that when they arrived, three young children were in the home along with 27-year-old Bucky Hart. A short time after their arrival, 27-year-old Haley Hart arrived.

A search of the home produced over 100 pills and over 100 grams of marijuana, allegedly packaged for resale, a 9 mm pistol and over $9100 in cash.

The Harts were arrested and charged with numerous drug-related offenses, a weapons charge, and three counts each of child abuse and neglect or endangerment.

They, too, were set to appear in an Anderson County courtroom today.
