Five charged in meth lab raid at Hawkins mobile home
By Jeff Bobo

Published April 4th, 2012 4:01 am Comments 2

SURGOINSVILLE — Several “one pot” meth labs, nearly a pound of marijuana and other drugs were allegedly found in a mobile home near Surgoinsville Sunday morning after police smelled meth and obtained a search warrant.

The Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit was conducting an ongoing meth investigation late Saturday night related to residents of 114 Ferry Road, Lot 2, off of Route 346 just east of Surgoinsville.

Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said that during the investigation narcotics officers detected an odor that is consistent with a meth lab emanating from that address.

A search warrant was issued by Circuit Judge Kindall Lawson early Sunday morning, but the sheriff said occupants of the mobile home initially refused to open the door for narcotics officers.
Deputies forced their way into the residence and detained five occupants inside.

“Upon initial entry to the home the odor of a meth lab became much stronger,” Sheriff Lawson said.“Once all occupants were safely detained, narcotics officers began a search of the home. During the search, narcotics officers recovered multiple ‘one pot’ meth labs, nearly a pound of marijuana, Suboxone pills, as well Salvia divinorum-A which is illegal synthetic drugs.

“Narcotics officers also located packaging materials as well as an assortment of other items of drug paraphernalia.”

Those arrested inside the residence were:

• Frankie Joe Alfred Benton, 28, of that address, who was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of Schedule II narcotics with intent to deliver, possession of Salvia divinorum-A, possession of drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a dwelling where narcotics are housed or sold. He remains held on $100,000 bond pending arraignment on April 9.

• Tina Eileen Davis, 43, of that address, who was charged with manufacturing meth, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of Schedule II narcotics with intent to deliver, possession of Salvia divinorum-A, possession of drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a dwelling where narcotics are housed or sold. She remains held on $100,000 bond pending arraignment on April 9.

• Travis Brandon O’Neal Benton, 29, 318 Marble Hall Road, Rogersville, who was charged with manufacturing meth. He remains held on $100,000 bond pending arraignment on April 9.

• Brittany Lashea Bush, 18, 318 Marble Hall Road, Rogersville, who was charged with manufacturing meth. She remains held on $10,000 bond pending arraignment April 9.

• Eddie Justin Patterson, 22, 1024 Rogan St., Church Hill, who was charged with manufacturing meth. He remains held on $100,000 bond pending arraignment April 11.

Sheriff Lawson said narcotics officers were on the scene for approximately 14 hours neutralizing and packaging all the hazardous materials.

The Tennessee Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Task Force, Hawkins County EMS, and Carters Valley Volunteer Fire Department also responded to the scene to assist.

All five occupants of the home were placed in custody, and each underwent a decontamination process before being transported to the Hawkins County jail.

Two vehicles as well as over $700 in cash were also seized from the residence.

The residence was quarantined.

The sheriff expressed his appreciation to all other responding agencies for standing by with his narcotics unit for the several hours that it took to properly neutralize and package all the hazardous materials.

“During this process, narcotics officers are most definitely in danger, and these agencies remained on scene just in case a narcotics officer were to become injured,” he said.

I know all about the situation and Tina loves Frankie. She left her husband and her kids and grandkids for him. Everyone has tried to get her away from him and she goes right back. Shes not scared of him...Shes Stupid!! Shes a ho!! If she was so worried about her son she wouldve been checking on him from time to time but no she wouldnt even go around...and when he would go to her house to see her they would call the law on him when he left and have him arrested. She cares so much for him she would give him drugs herself and him with all of those health problems. She doesnt care about nobody but herself. She is a trashy ho. If she got her bond lowered its because she sang on someone. They dont care if your kid is sick or not. She wasnt worried about him before she went to jail so why worry now. People are stupid for believing stupid shit.thats whats wrong with the world now. People uphold and support someone when they are sorry as hell.

Honestly, I don't think any of them deserve to get out of jail, they choose to do drugs, make the shit, so let them pay for what they are charged with.... as far as Justin being sick bless his heart, I feel sorry for him that his momma isn't with him, but just as it's been said already.. had she cared, would she have really been where she was when all this went down? He has been sick before the fact, so why wait til your in jail to start giving a damn, seriously??

Yes, he has been this sick before. He has cystic fibrosis and was diagnosed shortly after he was born. This is not something that just happened. She made the decision to leave and be with Frankie. Who in there right mind would want to be with a man who had been with there daughter?? Her daughter and Frankie use to date. Right, why does she worry now that shes in jail?? because she wants out. not because of Justin. Keep her in there.dont listen to her pitty bs.

karma does come back and bite you in the ass.thats why shes in the shape shes in now.this is a public forum and it is for people to comment there thoughts, so i am doing that.No need to blame frankie and travis. it was her home and she allowed it to go on.she had thousands of opportunities to leave him but she wouldnt. she deserves everything she gets for putting her husband and kids through this.thats what you call karma.tussie this go up there and give them $10,000 and go on her bond, and when she gets out she will be trying her best to find a way to get frankie out.

tennessee trash you are correct.tina has always been a ho. even when it wasnt frankie it was someone else. she even slept with dannys son. i guess thats dannys fault cause he had a son before they got together.i agree if danny takes her back he deserves everything he gets and then some.i agree she has been on drugs for awhile from the looks of her picture. she had bags under her eyes worse than a old woman.you are excatly right. she chose frankie and drugs over her family and yes she is pathetic. anybody will cry and sing the jailhouse blues when they know they got time in jail.

Left her with her family, your kidding right. Britt has been a huge problem since she left her family but of course that goes back to being sexually abused and if you are her family you would have seen all the signs during the time she was with her family. Also, DCS tries to play children with their family first unless they are proved to be unfit, Just Sayin!!

^ Notice the Name ^ Blackie's grandaughter, Tina's Daughter & Aydin's Mother..(which makes me your family too) I am honestly absolutely disgusted at the sight of all this & the fact yu all have nothing better or constructive to do with your time or thoughts. For all these people that think they know enough about me & my family to claim to know right from wrong?? You said your piece, Now it's my turn... Yes, Frankie & I dated, but it was never serious because I was smart enough to realize what kind of person he was before i let it get that far. Considering he already had a wife and child at home, and tried to lie to me about it, when his wife and I graduated in the same class and were actually friends at one point. I didnt kno who or what to believe at first, but soon found out the truth. So I ended that. quickly. As for my baby brother, Justin, he has ben sick since he was born. He doesnt like to advertise his disability because he doesn't need, nor expect, people's sympathy. Mom did wait until he was of age to decide to leave. So i have tried my best to pick up the pieces and take the best care of him I know how. I'm not a dr. and in no position to comment on Justin's condition, other than the fact that he is no longer in the hospital and is better now, then when i rode up there with him in the ambulance, on my birthday, and sat with him, day & night untill he was released a week & a half later. If your really that worried about how he is ASK HIM. As for me, myself & i, I¡m da only person dat can speak4 me so be prepared, cuz I¡m bout2 lett da truth b known, from my perspective, were yu lyke it or yu don't. On dis1 yu all needa take da advice I ben force fed all my lyfe, "Cryy me a river, build a bridge, & gett da fuk over it!" I¡m not jus sum lil girl if dats wut ya'll are thinkin.. I¡m a grown woman. We all make mistakes, but i learn my those mistakes quickly & never make the same1's twice. There are many things i cud sayy on my opinion or how i feel, in my heart bout da situation, but wut relevence do my feelings have in dat matter? yes, i wuz arrestd last July but not convictd nor indictd yet. No1 else is to be held accountable4 or discriminated against4 my own actions. Considerin da thangs i have seen an ben forced2 withstand & still held my ground2 speak my mind on my own beliefs of right and wrong, I've grown even more since those mistakes were made. i admit mom's job iz hard. harder then wut i thought. i see dat now. yea i used2 drank lyke a fish, yea i did pop ever pill i cud gett my hands on2 tryy & dull da pain of a lyfe of never bein wontd, newere & knowin da man i once luvd an cared4 enough2 have a child wit LITERALLY tried2 kill me by flippin a Dodge Avenger on me, after i had tryyd so hard2 be gud2, support him, keep him in gud health after he fell off a roof, ben put on bedrest (3 weeks after my son was born mind yu), his habits, his pos brother Mikey & his whores, dat robbed me blind ever chance dey gott, his kids & my own son while enduring far FAR more den i knew i had2, i did it4 my son cuz.. well my reasons cud go on 4 ever.. da point I¡m gettin @ iz i have ask God4 forgiveness4 all my sins, since da dayy he gave me my lyfe bak2 spent wit my son. never claimd2 b, not perfect by far, but REALLY tryna do rite by my heart4 my family. I now live2 make my son proud.. "when yu point a finger, yu have3 pointin bak@ yurself" I've also learned not2 judge ppl nemore.. i Pray4 them as i will each of yu all too..

Thank you all so much for the info about Travis Benton,he is married to my sister,and yes she is a grown woman,but made some very poor choice's during the time they were togther,she gave her 2 children up for Travis and drug's,Travis went to prison about 3 year's ago,and my sister followed not far behind him,on some charges that they had caught together,he got out about 2 yr ago,stayed out 6 to 8 month's went right back,and my sister is still in there pulling her time,i'm so sorry to this Britney girl that Travis was seeing and apparently has pregnant.BECAUSE HE IS USELESS,SORRY,AND A NO GOOD PIECE OF SHIT,i'm sorry to have to talk this way about someone,that has been apart of my family for almost 10 year's,but when they gave them babies up,and NEVER NEVER attempted to try and get them back.IT HURT'S ME,WITH THE BOTH OF THEM,meaning my sister and Travis.Hope each of these ppl get the proper help for their addiction,and get's AWAY from the BENTON BOY'S.
