Arraignment Date Set For Dealer In Fake Drugs

A July 13th arraignment has been set for an Overton County man, indicted by the Putnam County grand jury on charges of selling counterfeit drugs. Authorities say the indictment of Daniel E. Johnson of Rickman Road comes because it is against the law to sell both real and fake illegal drugs. Johnson is accused of five counts of selling a counterfeit controlled substance, five counts of delivering that counterfeit drug, and one count of selling more than half a gram of real methamphetamine. The sales allegedly took place in July and August of last year. Meanwhile, authorities say July 13th will also be the arraignment date for at least two other individuals indicted in separate investigations of illegal drug sales. They were identified as 21-year-old Victoria Ann Edmonds of Cookeville and 26-year-old Anthony Joe Hamilton of Smithville.
