I bet this guy has a rap sheet a mile long. I also bet he was a fine upstanding neighbor that didn't raise any suspicions. Ha.

I hope this is a wake up call for the people in Roane County. These methheads are escalating in what lengths they are willing to go. They are nothing more than a cancerous plague in our community. Could have easily killed some police officers, or a neighbor, or a kid.

I know this all sounds crazy, and I do not agree with people making meth in our communities, BUT the truth is that there was NO meth or meth lab found. The drug task force kicked in the door knocking over a kerosene heater,that's why the fire started...burning up probably 10,000$ worth of tools that he was using for work, belonged to his boss. Im sure the guy does have a rap sheet a mile long, but he has a good family and that is what really happened. Im sure everyone will believe the media though because they always tell the true story "yea right".

Patty did not have anything to do with a meth lab. She was picked up for selling pills. The way the paper put her picture and caption it made everyone think she was involved. Not saying that was much better but if anyone wants to know they should ask her

Then why was she charged with manufacturing?.. just curious


Drug manufacturing occurs whenever a person participates in any part of the process involved in creating an illegal drug. Manufacturing activities can include mixing together chemicals in preparation for creating LSD,“cooking” or producing methamphetamine, as well as growing marijuana plants. Even offering to assist in the drug manufacturing process is enough to qualify as drug manufacturing.

Wow thanks Karen for telling me what manufacturing is. I didn't know! That is my Aunt and she was picked up for selling pills.I think the paper got her mixed up with the meth lab lady since they were arrested around the same time. You notice they sure didn't put anymore pictures in the paper. If you are that interested then ask her I am sure she would tell you.

The paper did not state she was involved with meth, they just put a picture of her because it was a great photo op for Rockwood Police. She was selling pain pills only. I found it interesting that they had a story about the alleged meth explosion and an article about the guy who killed someone at a bar in Harriman, but yet they posted a large picture of Patty. I guess she didn't do anything about it because it's hard to get a dog that's been kicked down a lot to fight. So, all you judgemental people take a look at your own lives before you try tearing down someone else's. Unless her actions are affecting you, keep your mouth shut, no one needs your opinions.
