Identities Released Of 8 Arrested In Thompson's Station Meth Bust

CREATED Jul 17, 2014
THOMPSONS STATION, Tenn. – The identities have been released of eight suspects arrested after officials uncovered an active meth lab at a home in Thompson’s Station.

Officials said Benjamin Ray Reed, 35, Dakota Lee Osan, 21, Terry Wayne Polk, Jr., 21, Maghan Alyse Woodmore, 26, Anna Louise Holloway, 30, and Barbara Ashley Knupp, 29, were arrested Tuesday at a home at 6649 Cool Springs Road, south of Highway 840.

Two suspects who told police they lived inside the home were identified as Barbara Allison Nickens, 51, and Jacob Aaron Nickens, 21.

Deputies first went to the home to serve a warrant on a probation violation on Jacob Nickens. When they arrived, they found an active meth lab inside the residence and an inactive meth lab outside the home.

Hazardous response teams from the Williamson County and Franklin Fire Departments were also called to the scene.

All eight suspects had to be decontaminated before being booked into the Williamson County Jail.

They were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and initiation of a process intended to result in the manufacture of methamphetamine, with Nickens facing an additional charge of violation of probation on another charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Holloway was also arrested on an additional charge of fabricating evidence.

The eight suspects were scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on July 24. Officials said the investigation was far from over.
