MADISON, Tenn. – A man and his daughter were among three people arrested Tuesday and charged with reselling methamphetamine.

Investigators said that 49-year-old Charles Patterson admitted he purchased crystal meth from states ranging from Texas to Georgia. Patterson's 18-year-old daughter, Courtney Patterson, and his 30-year-old girlfriend, Antoinette Ridley, were also charged with possession of drugs with the intent to resale.

Investigators with the Narcotics division said they had been targeting the Patterson home on Paula Drive, just off of Galatin Pike in Madison, for some time. They raided the house after confirming that crystal meth was being sold there.

Detectives seized 190 grams of crystal meth, 990 illegal prescription pills, 300 grams of marijuana, and more than $10,000 in cash.

Officers said they also confiscated nearly 40,000 counterfeit DVD movies, five pistols, three rifles, two shotguns, four vehicles, and at least $30,000 worth of electronics.

Charles Patterson is being held in lieu of $135,000 bond. Courtney Patterson's bond has been set at $105,000. Riley's bond was set at $100,000.
