On Friday, July 27th, DeKalb County Sheriff's Deputy Jeffrey Bain made a routine traffic stop on County Road 279 in the Kilpatrick area that later led to 5 drug related arrests.

After pulling into a private driveway, the driver and two passengers exited the vehicle.  Deputy Bain instructed all three subjects to halt.  At that time, 30 year old Doshie Jane Nevins of Crossville stopped immediately. However 26 year-old Joseph Randale Wyers of Asbury and 36 year old Brock Adam Stephens of Albertville continued to walk toward the house.  After being instructed to stop a second time, 2 of the suspects turned around and advanced on Deputy Bain.  

Deputy Bain was joined by Officer Jason Johnson after calling for back up from the Crossville Police Department. One of the suspects dropped a small, white canister, so all three suspects were told to back up and the area was secured. The container was found to contain a white powdery substance. After further checking the vehicle, approximately 2 grams of methamphetamine was found in the back seat. Another 2 grams of the white powdery substance were taken off of Doshie. The DeKalb County Drug Task Force was contacted, and they were able to confirm that the white substance was methamphetamine.  

It was learned that the subjects had been at a residence on County Road 34 where it was believed that methamphetamine was being cooked. While walking around the property on County Road 34, officers found a total of seven one-pot methamphetamine labs. Officers then spotted someone inside the residence peeking through the window blinds.  Agents then made entry of the residence and found 45 year old Rondal Dolan Cuzzort Jr. and 44 year old Cynthia Ann Martin, both of Crossville, hiding in the bathroom. During a search of the property, a small amount of methamphetamine was found, along with some marijuana and other drug paraphernalia, including several items normally used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.   

Later, a consent search was conducted at a residence on County Road 58 where agents recovered nine one-pot methamphetamine labs and a small amount of finished product.  

Stephens was charged with Manufacturing of Controlled Substance 2nd Degree, Doshie and Wyers were charged with Manufacture of Controlled Substance 2nd Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Failure to Appear, Cuzzort and Martin were charged with Manufacture of Controlled Substance 2nd Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of Marijuana 2nd Degree.
