Cocaine, Cash, Guns Found Inside South Nashville Home; 2 Arrested
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Two convicted felons were arrested after more than three pounds of cocaine was seized during an investigation into cocaine selling at a south Nashville home.
Police found most of the drugs stashed in plastic bags inside a container of "Muscle Milk" protein powder during a search of the home Lynn Drive.
Metro Police charged 22-year-old Dantwan Crump and 33-year-old Kevin Howard, II with multiple felony charges including possession of cocaine for resale in a drug free school zone and gun possession in the commission of a serious drug offense. Their Lynn Drive residence is within 1,000 feet of Croft Middle School.
Officers also seized more than $7,000 in cash thought to be cocaine proceeds, numerous items of drug paraphernalia and a loaded "Mac-10" style pistol with extended magazines.
Crump received an 8-year probated sentence for a felony cocaine conviction last September. He was held on $165,000 bond and a probation violation warrant was expected to be filed against him.
Howard, who has multiple robbery convictions in his past, was held in lieu of $176,000 bond.
