One of three people busted operating a meth trafficking operation out of a residence at Green Acres Apartments has taken a plea deal, while the two others are keeping their options open.The lone person taking a plea, Latricia R. Brady, 26, entered a guilty plea before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to the charge of possession of meth and was directed to serve 180 days of an eight-year sentence and pay $2,000 plus costs.According to warrants against the three, officers were dispatched to the residence to help a probation officer who was there to conduct a search. McMinnville police officer Bobby Anderson reported they were eventually granted permission to enter the apartment and it didn’t take long to find a gram of meth inside Steffen Brady’s bedroom along with six digital scales, a marijuana pipe, and a 9 mm handgun clip containing 10 rounds. A search of Ms. Brady’s purse yielded even more meth as 5.3 grams were found.Police also discovered a surveillance system they believe the residents were using to monitor the parking lot outside their apartment.“A wireless camera system was posted at the entrance to the apartment and into the parking lot,” Anderson wrote in his warrants.Police say they also found drugs on Tammy Crusinberry, the third member of the alleged drug conspiracy.
