CAMDEN, Tenn.- A battle 10 years in the making is brewing in Benton County. On one side, Camden Police who said they arrested a drug dealer and confiscated what he bought with the money he made. On the other side, Larry Ross who said he is the victim of bad police work.

"As far as his life, it destroyed him. His health is gone, he can no long work to try to make a living," Terry Leonard Ross' attorney said.

According to court documents, after months of surveilling Ross, Camden Police got a drug warrant and searched his home and confiscated more than $628,000 as well as drug paraphernalia.

During a 2006 hearing a financial expert witness for the state testified that Ross could not have generated that kind of money from his personal business. Ross attributed his large sums of cash in part to his grandfather.

"He worked himself to death and he saved every dime, and the government took it away from him. They destroyed this mans life," Leonard said.

During the 2006 trial, a Memphis judge ruled in favor of Ross saying even if the state had proven he was a major drug dealer they failed to prove the money, 41 guns, house boat and several cars were purchased with drug money.

"We've got the best judicial system in the world. It's not perfect and sometimes bad things happen to good folks," Leonard said.

He also said while Ross will never get back all he's lost he hopes this case can serve as an example not just in Benton County but nationwide.

"I think we got a good police department and excellent sheriff's department. But as in any profession you're gonna have a bad apple or two."

The Camden Police Department was advised by their lawyers not want to comment on the upcoming negotiations with Ross. Ross and his attorney are expected to begin meeting with Camden Police in the coming month to determine if a settlement can be reached. If not, Ross is seeking damages for nearly a decade of attorney fees as well as material items lost.

Ken Beal AKA Robo Cop ran for Sheriff based on this arrest and how he ceased all of that money for the city of Camden. Now he is costing city tax payers legal fees and $500,000.00 of taxpayer money. HE took credit for the entire thing when it happened, now its time to hold him responsible for the ENTIRE thing!
Word on the street from city hall is that there is ANOTHER lawsuit about to be filed against Ken Beal and the City of Camden. Remember the $800,000.00 settlement against the city of Camden AND Ken Beal for pepper spraying a 12 year old girl while she was sitting in a van? His Time Is Up!!

It sounds like it's time for Ken Beal to answer for years of irresponsible behavior that he has gotten away with. What law abiding taxpaying citizen wouldn't want some rouge loose cannon to answer the piper?
The only Devil is the one who caused the problem.

No, just one Person who isn't from here, but has done everything possible to cause trouble for the ones who are.

Don't pay any attention to that Person, they are IRRELEVANT and Everybody knows it, NOW!

They're nothing but a Troublemaker, just trying to get attention because Everybody here just ignores them, NOW...and they can't stand to be ignored. Oh well...'Tuff, is all I can say!

Like I said, they are TOTALLY IRRELEVANT!

The FACT that he "jacked you up", justifiably, for terrorizing his Wife wouldn't have anything to do with your "vendetta", would it, now would it, Sue baby?

No one has ever "jacked me up", and I'm not Mr. Ross. So blame your "vendetta" theory on someone else Miss Cooper. On the contrary, the justifiable and very RELEVANT lawsuit filed against Ken Beal happens to be the 4th one in just one and a half years.
Speaking of his wife, since you mentioned her, she has cost county taxpayers a small fortune in lawsuits over the past two years. Lawsuits she has lost, and now needs to repay the taxpayers for insurance, legal fees, and if at all possible punitive damages.
As expected from you, an attempt to twist yet another important issue from the real issue, on to something you better prefer, hate and personal attacks against someone whom is not the subject.
nice try, no cigar.

I would be interested in hearing about whom, and how Ken Beal "jacked up" and exactly how that person "terrorized" Ken Beals wife, but since anything you put on topix is dismissed as false, lies, rumor, and baseless accusation, I will save us all the drama of your pointless comments.
Have a wonderful evening Miss Cooper.=o)

Funny how Linda cooper constantly bitches about things like this not being published in the local newspaper but for some weird reason didn't want this news published. What happened to Linda wanting to know about things costing money in Camden? She must be a Beal Badge Bunny.

It WAS published in the paper...even I read that paper, but either you didn't or you're lying. I opt for the latter choice, when it comes to you.
And BTW, the Cop you're Libeling was not mentioned, it was another Cop that was mentioned in the Article.
Why don't you just shut the He*l up and do something worthwhile, for a change, like...pay your Debt To Society!
