NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Nine police officers were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center after an East Nashville meth bust.
Metro police say they were taken in an abundance of caution due to potential exposure after a search warrant was executed Monday.
Undercover detectives searched a home on the 1000 block of Davidson Street after they were reportedly able to buy meth at the home.
Once they got inside, a suspected meth lab was discovered, leading nine officers to be taken to the hospital. They’ve since been released.
Four people, two men and two women, were taken to Metro General Hospital to be decontaminated.
Heather Hill, 29, Homer Lee Disher, 29, Steven Nelson, 39, and Kecia Garrett, 46, are each charged with manufacturing meth, unlawful gun possession during the commission of a felony, and possession of Schedule I and II drugs in a drug free zone.
They all remain jailed in lieu of $150,000 bond each.
Garrett has previous convictions for aggravated robbery, robbery, and felony oxycodone possession.
Police seized 1.8 ounces of meth, 23 ecstasy pills, 16 oxycodone pills, one morphine pill, one gun and $1,410 cash.
All the components for a meth lab were inside the house.
