Undercover Drug Buy Leads To Arrest

A May 17th court date has been set for a Brentwood man, charged with the sale and delivery of narcotics in Cookeville. Police say 22-year-old Christopher Dummer allegedly sold more than thirty prescription suboxone pills to an an undercover officer in a parking lot off South Willow Avenue. Dummer had allegedly driven from Murfreesboro to complete the drug deal. Members of the police department's Community Nuisance Eradication Team set up the deal after receiving information that Dummer may have been selling drugs in the area. Police say he was arrested after the undercover officer completed the sale, and they allegedly found more than five dozen additional suboxone pills on him at the time of his arrest. The drug is sometimes used to treat drug addiction, but has addictive properties itself.
