Law Enforcement in Wilson County found meth, marijuana and cocaine in two Pepsi cans and a Pringles can.

Members of the Lebanon Wilson County Task Force and Wilson County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team served a search warrant at an apartment in Greentree Pointe Apartments on Thursday.

Inside, detectives found marijuana, crack cocaine, more than two ounces of crystal methamphetamine, and instruments used to distribute the illegal narcotics.

They also found a Pringles chip container and two Pepsi cans with false compartments used to conceal the drugs.

There were four adults and two infant children in the apartment at the time. However, officials said there were still others wanted for questioning.

Pending a Wilson County Grand Jury investigation, the suspects face the following charges: 

  • Possession of Schedule II (Methamphetamine) with Intent for Resale 
  • Possession of Schedule II (Crack Cocaine)
  • Possession of Schedule VI (Marijuana)
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

The apartment  was within 1,000 feet of a local childcare. Therefore, the suspects also face an enhanced criminal penalty of a Drug-Free School Zone violation.
