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.
Wed 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.
