NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police’s gang unit along with the district attorney’s office padlocked a south Nashville home situated across the street from Napier Elementary School.
Authorities said the home at 66 Robertson Street was being used to peddle illegal drugs.
The home has been declared a public nuisance in a temporary injunction. It was boarded up and padlocked shut.
After conducting a search, Metro police said the house will remain padlocked pending a hearing.
The residents, Katie Sharber, 75, and Milton Anthony, 56, are alleged to have knowledge of, and participated/assisted in, the illegal drug trade.
Sharber has reportedly been the subject of narcotic investigations for the past several years. Since December 2007, Metro police say they have been called to the home 66 times.
During the most recent investigation being conducted by gang unit detectives, the elementary school was in session while drug deals too.
In a release, authorities said, “The police department and District Attorney’s Office took today’s unusual action of padlocking a home due to the real risk of danger posed to the neighborhood.”
Anthony is charged with four counts of selling cocaine and dispensing drugs illegally.
Sharber will be charged with selling cocaine and dispensing drugs illegally upon her release from the hospital.
