Court Date Set For Drug Suspects

Two people from Monterey and one from Crossville will be in court on January 31st after being charged with promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine.  Cookeville police say 29-year-old Lisa Marie Barnwell, 27-year-old Mark Allison Wilson, and 28-year-old Gerrell Wayne Jackson Jr. were arrested after an investigation of a shoplifting incident at K-Mart.  Store officials told police that they had observed two men stealing coffee filters, a coffee pot and camping supplies.  They got a tag number from the suspects' vehicle and it was later stopped on Tenth Street, where police allege they found three boxes of pseudoephedrine and several other ingredients common to manufacture of meth.  Two young children in the car were taken to the hospital for evaluation of possible meth contamination and later released into the custody of relatives.
