News


Police arrested a man after they found hundreds of grams of crystal meth in his Sweetwater home.

On Thursday, officials searched 41-year-old James David Bradley's home at 227 Country Road 298 as part of an on-going investigation. Inside, officers discovered more than 225 grams of crystal meth as well as cocaine and marijuana for resale. Police also found drug paraphernalia, two assault rifles and a pistol that was reported stolen in Loudon County.

Authorities charged Bradley with possession for resale of methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana. Bradley is also facing charges for having a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony, theft, and violating probation.

Sweetwater Police Department Chief Eddie Byrum said recent legislation has made it more difficult to make meth in Monroe County.

"The officers are finding fewer meth labs and one pot labs," said Chief Byrum in a release. "However, we are seeing more crystal methamphetamine being imported to our area."
