KNOXVILLE - A federal judge is set to decide later today whether a woman accused of running a methamphetamine "smurfing" operation should go free pending trial.

Deborah CRABTREE Phillips is charged in a 33-count indictment with heading up a methamphetamine conspiracy involving at least 13 alleged minions, who also are named as co-conspirators in the case. She is set to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Clifford Shirley this afternoon for a detention hearing.

According to the indictment, Phillips directed her co-conspirators to go out and buy in small quantities various ingredients needed to cook up meth, a powerful and toxic illegal stimulant. It is a practice known as "smurfing," a reference to that large army of small blue characters on the cartoon show "Smurfs."

"This smurfing operation was designed to procure small amounts of precursor chemicals from numerous locations to avoid detection by law enforcement," Assistant U.S. Attorney David Lewen wrotei n the indictment.

Phillips allegedly paid her co-conspirators with cash, meth or prescription pain killers, the indictment stated.

Others named in the indictment are: Eddie E. Eslinger, MICHAEL CARROLL, David Chamblee, Tiffany Crass, Brandon Martin, DANNY MONDAY, Lisa Orme, Natasha Richardson, FRANCES RICHARDSON, Mary Roberts, Nerisa Rogers, Elizabeth Scisco and Deadrea Wilson.

The indictment does not list any of the defendants' addresses or ages. It also does not identify the alleged base of operation for the conspiracy or what law enforcement agency first discovered it. More details about the alleged conspiracy should emerge at this afternoon's detention hearing.

Here's a new one, folks

MORGAN COUNTY, Tenn.(WVLT)-- A federal grand jury indicted 14 people on 34 count indictment in connection with an alleged methcathinone ring in Morgan County, according to U.S. Attorney James R. Deadrick. Methcathinone is a drug similar to methamphetamine, or meth.( ... is methcathinone?)

Morgan County Sheriff Dennis Ledbetter said,“This group is responsible for putting a lot of dope into Morgan County. We want to make sure they get locked up for as long as possible.”

“These arrests are the result of an investigation that lasted more than a year," Morgan County Chief Deputy William Angel said. "These people were running between Morgan and Anderson counties buying supplies to make dope and selling the finished product in both places.”

820 Back Valley Road? What's going on down there? Every day when you pick your newspaper up and start reading, this address 820 Crack Valley Road pops up.

I just googled it for fun, and found numerous arrest reports, here are some of the recent ones:

Several months, maybe a year ago this "house" was supposed to have been condemned by the meth task force. Drive by there some day, it looks like the Charles Manson gang is living there??

You don't have to be a smart person to know what's going on at that particular residence. If you live near there, it's quite obvious. There are people coming and going constantly and we all know that they're not having scrapbooking parties. It's common sense.

To James Bond: I am interested in knowing when this house was condemned as well. I cannot find any information on that. Do they automatically condemn the house when a meth lab is found inside?

What a shame, huh? Small town politics are alive and well in Morgan County and the sad thing is that Dennis Ledbetter is a wonderful man; I really think that he wants others to like him SO MUCH that he allows alot to slip thru the cracks. Coalfield, having ( I'm sure) the bulk of Morgan County's wealth, is a place that keeps things there quiet at any cost. The "rich" people want so badly to keep it outta the news that they push MCSD, I think, to look the other way
