Indictments will be sought from a Wilson County grand jury after Wilson County Sheriff’s Department detectives found evidence of gambling, drugs and money allegedly obtained from the sale of drugs and alcohol at a Mt. Juliet residence on Wednesday.

A news release from the WCSD said detectives with Narcotics Unit obtained a search warrant after receiving complaints from residents living along Central Pike concerning possible illegal activities at the home of a longtime resident.

The complaints ranged from the alleged illegal sale of alcohol, gambling, prostitution and the sale and use of illegal narcotics.

In addition, citizens complained about the reported overall hazardous condition of the residence and expressed concerns regarding their safety.

Upon further investigation, Narcotics Unit detectives were able to corroborate the information and sought a search warrant.

The search warrant was executed at the residence on Jan. 15. Detectives reportedly encountered numerous individuals including the homeowner inside the residence.

In addition, detectives reportedly discovered gaming activity occurring at the time of entry.

Upon securing all of the occupants, detectives then searched the residence and found evidence relating to alcohol for resale, illegal narcotics consistent with crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia and United States Currency supporting proceeds of narcotics transactions and the illegal sale of alcohol.

No arrests were made. Detectives interviewed and obtained a statement from several suspects involved in the case and will request indictments on specific individuals who were present at the residence pending an investigation by the grand jury.
