BURLISON, TN (abc24.com) - The Tipton County Sheriff's Office busted a Burlison man when he traded meth for pseudoephedrine and other meth ingredients with an undercover officer.
Narcotics investigators conducted an undercover operation on Thursday, January 3. During the operation, 44-year-old Derek Wilson traded meth for pseudoephedrine pills, batteries and a cold compress pack, which are all ingredients used to cook methamphetamine. Wilson was arrested on the scene and charged with Violation of Probation for multiple prior meth convictions.
According to Tipton County Sheriff J.T. 'Pancho' Chumley, “There has seen an increase in meth cooks having meth users buy the components since the pseudo pill purchases are monitored. We will continue to seek out those people who are cooking meth and the people who provide them with the components who enable this process."
