Three people charged following drug bust
Updated on: 06.05.12

Three Brown County residents face high-level felony charges after a raid on a home north of Nashville allegedly turned up drugs and the ingredients to make methamphetamine.

On Monday, the Brown County Prosecutor’s Office lodged Class A and Class B felony dealing meth charges against 29-year-old Brandon M. Todd, 23-year-old Tricia Elaine McDonald and 46-year-old Terrill Trivett.

The trio was arrested over the weekend following a raid on Trivett’s home at 1412 State Road 135 North.

According to a probable cause affidavit, police served a search warrant at the address on June 2 and located a large amount of meth, along with bags of marijuana and a laundry list of drug paraphernalia and drug-making materials.

Brian Shrader of the Nashville Police Department reported that police found 23.5 grams of meth in a locked safe in the room where officers found Todd and McDonald sleeping in a bed.

Court records show that other items found included rubber tubing, lithium batteries, burnt foil, a box of pseudoephedrine, a mirror with white residue and scales containing marijuana residue.

Shrader reported syringes, spoons and bands found in a hidden compartment behind a bookcase. The officer also listed surveillance cameras inside and outside the home attached to multiple TV monitors, as well as a ledger containing names, among the items located on the property.

In addition to the dealing charges, Trivett faces Class D felonies of maintaining a common nuisance, possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a syringe, as well as Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

The case against Todd and McDonald contains the additional charges of Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana, Class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and Class B misdemeanor visiting a common nuisance.

In the early morning hours of Sunday, police booked Todd, McDonald and Trivett into the Brown County Jail, where they remained as of Tuesday afternoon.
