Several To Be Arraigned Next Week In Criminal Court

The arraignment date for the July session of Putnam County Criminal Court comes up a week from Tuesday, and officials say that a number of individuals picked up in recent days on criminal charges will have their first official court appearance at that time -- including several who are facing drug charges in cases that have been investigated by the TBI. The agency presented evidence at a recent term of the grand jury and was able to get indictments on three people. They are identified as 42-year-old Bruce Edward Phillips of Hilham, 33-year-old Rhonda Marie Tatrow of Cookeville, and 51-year-old Angela Faye McCrary of Cookeville. Tatrow and Phillips are accused of selling a drug called hydromorphone; McCrary is charged for selling methadone. Officials say hydropmorphone is a narcotic drug also known as Dilaudid. Methadone is a drug that is sometimes used to treat heroin addiction.
