A number of complaints about traffic in and out at a Lebanon residence led to the arrest of three individuals on Thursday morning who now face drug charges.
Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said officers with Lebanon Police Department, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Lebanon Public Safety served three narcotic-related search warrants at 1447 A Toshiba Drive, at 1447 B Toshiba Drive and at 207 Burdock Street, all in Lebanon.As a result, three people were charged. They were identified as Terrance L. Lampkins, 35, of 1447 B Toshiba Drive, who was charged with one count of Schedule II possession for resale (cocaine); Aderius L. Bingham, 21, who was staying at 207 Burdock Street. He was charged with one count of Schedule VI for resale (marijuana) and one count of simple possession of Schedule II. Also charged was Darryl J. Wallace, 28, of Nashville. He was charged with one count of simple possession of Schedule III.
Bowen said Lampkins was on Community Corrections, parole, in Nashville in connection with drug charges and an aggravated assault charge. Wallace, he added, was on probation in Nashville on drug-related charges.
“We’d been getting numerous complaints,” the chief said, regarding the Burdock Street residence, with “a lot of traffic in and out.”
That led to the investigation which resulted not only in the arrests yesterday but also the reported discovery of the drugs and “several thousands in cash,” he added.
“One common factor here, all these people are in trouble again,” Bowen said, noting that two of them had already faced charges in Nashville and referred to the arrests made in an unrelated case involving vehicle burglaries. At least two of the three suspects in the vehicle burglaries have faced charges previously, as well.
He also praised officers for their efforts in the investigation which led to the arrests. “Good work on all the cases.”
