Police find drugs, guns vehicles during bust


Jackson police confiscated 84 pounds of marijuana after executing a search warrant Thursday for an apartment in North Jackson, according to a Friday release from the Jackson-Madison County Metro Narcotics Unit.

Authorities arrested a Jackson man and a Humbolt man in connection with the search warrant.

Those arrested were Thomas Frank Montgomery, 29, of Humboldt, and Kenneth Ray Kight, 24, of Jackson. Both men are being held in the Madison County Jail, according to the release.

Members of the Metro Narcotics Unit and the Jackson Police Department Gang Enforcement Team also recovered an SKS assault rifle, a loaded semiautomatic pistol, $9,300 and paraphernalia associated with the sale and distribution of drugs in an apartment at 45-B Woodmont Drive.

Four vehicles and a stolen motorcycle also were seized.

The street value of the marijuana was at least $84,000, according to the release.

If you have any information on this case, or any other drug or firearm crimes, contact the Metro Narcotics Unit at 424-6485, the Jackson Police Department Gang Unit at 425-8400 or Crime Stoppers at 424-8477.

Wonder if that was a staging area for distribution in Nashville or Memphis.

Nashville I would imagine. Going from my farm in Waverly ( about 45 min from Jackson ) to my home in Nashville the undercover/interdiction units are all over the place. Some are pretty well hidden and some do random or "suspicious looking vehicle" stops.

Well there goes my order. I better call Visa and contest the charge.

Guns, money and reefer? Except for the stolen property, sounds like a damn good party.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure 84 lbs of weed is reason to go to jail.

84 pounds? According to the cops, I'm sure that has a street value of at least $350 billion dollars

That's the 84 pounds they recorded. The other 50 pounds went home with the popo.

Its good that they got a thief off the street.

As for his drugs and firearm I see nothing inherintly wrong with having either.

Oops, missed that part Still, if they are counting whole plants, which they usually do, it is an inflated figure.

Nothing inherintly wrong with a motorcycle. It's when its a stolen motorcycle that its a problem. Nothing inherintly wrong with marijuana. it's when you are selling 84 pounds of it that its a problem. nothing inherintly wrong with an SKS. its when you are arming yourself with one to protect your drug dealing and stolen vehicle collection that it's a problem.

It's against the law here even if it was a joint so yeah, in TN there is something wrong with it. Break the law, pay the price. 84 pounds just makes the price a hell of a lot more steep.

Cue the brainwashed zealots that believe that while banning a gun, a knife, or a 4-slice toaster is a useless affront to personal liberty, banning a plant that grows naturally just because people smoke it is perfectly okay, and doesn't reek of socialism in the least bit.

Lol. I love how members here always assume anyone here who doesn't agree with them is brainwashed. Smoke another J hippie.

Weed and an SKS. How many pit-bulls did they recover?

Ah yes, the trademark argument of assuming that the poster who is against the War on Drugs™ MUST be a drug user himself, because gee, no rational man would disagree with such a noble cause that results in no-knock warrants because some kid has a few joints.

Prohibition of alcohol didn't work, and ONLY served to create crime and abridge rights. SAME for the War on Drugs™.

And the post wasn't directed at you Einstein, or else I would have quoted you. Look up the meaning of "cue". But since you mention it, when they make your AR15 illegal will there "be something wrong with" owning it? Or will there be something wrong with the law instead?

If we are regulating what someone puts into their own body, much more societal benefit would be gained by banning alcohol again, or by banning Big Macs since they cause heart disease and obesity.

84 lbs. Could be just for medicinal purposes. He might have one hell of a case of glaucoma.

The war on (some) drugs rules!

Link Posted: 10/2/2005 2:24:16 PM EDT
I've never heard of a no-knock warrant because of a few joints. Got some documentation to back that up?

We don't get to choose what laws we obey. If you think it's unconstitutional then lobby to get it changed. But don't whine if you get busted for breaking the law in the meantime. Personally, I don't want pot and illegal narcotics legalized. I would be for sentencing reform for minor possesion of pot but that's about the extent. No sympathy for dealers.

Not if you enjoy a clean police record. Perhaps you'd care to elaborate.

So would 84 lbs be too much to claim pers use?? What if you're Woody Herrelson(spl)?

I don't have a problem with the drugs per se, I do have a problem with someone selling 84 lbs. of it and paying no income tax.
Link Posted: 10/2/2005 3:26:02 PM EDT
I live in Jackson and have not heard about this. Damn, gotta find a new connection.J/K I think personal use is out of the question. I know some of the Task Force guys, I know they had fun with these clowns.

Obviously.


Nothing inherintly wrong with marijuana. it's when you are selling 84 pounds of it that its a problem.


I dont see the problem. I believe in capitalism, let the free market decide.

I dont see anything with a businessman arming himself to protect himself, his property, his money. Obviously however this guy was a thief and that was the problem.

No sympathy for dealers, because capitalism is bad mkay.

Would that include selling it to those under 18? Perhaps he was a very responsible armed motorcyle stealing drug dealer who always checked ID's and never sold to minors or obviously impaired person? Or maybe he was like most drug dealers and sold to anyone who had the cash.

I think your reading comprehension skills suck balls.

I think the guy should be in jail for theft, not for practicing capitalism nor for gun ownership.

I've seen signs that read "selling to minors, its not just illegal, its wrong."

IMO it should read "selling to minors, its not wrong, its just illegal."

Whatever happened to fucking parental responsibility.

Businesses should not be responsible for children, thier parents should be.

Back in the day it was perfectly legal for minors to smoke tobacco.

So you're cool with people selling kiddie porn and NBC weapons and arming themselves to do so? I mean, what the hell - why should the law stand in the way of selling anything right?
