In the early morning hours of January 11th 2018 the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office Special Weapons and Tactics Team executed a narcotics search warrant at the residence of Marvin Lee McGhee, 57, of 229 Howard Road Lafollette, Tennessee. Investigators with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and Agents with the 8th Judicial Drug Task Force, prior to the execution of the search warrant, had conducted a several month long investigation into McGhee’s illegal sell of prescription narcotics. During the investigation, investigators conducted several undercover purchases of prescription narcotics from McGhee.
During execution of the search warrant, investigators recovered large amounts of prescription medication that was being sold by McGhee. Investigators also located a large amount of US currency believed to be proceeds from the illegal sell of prescription narcotics. Investigators seized several vehicles from which McGhee used to transport and sell prescription narcotics.
McGhee is facing charges of several counts of the sell and delivery of a schedule II controlled substance. Sheriff Robbie K. Goins stats “This case is an example of the opioid problem that law enforcement and our community is facing. We are committed to working with local, district, state, and federal resources to wage war against the opioid epidemic in our community.”
