NARCOTICS INDICTMENTS SERVED ON FENTRESS INMATE BRINGING ADDITIONAL FELONY CHARGES

On Wednesday August 3, 2016, Officers with the City of Crossville Police Department served an indictment for the arrest a Fentress County resident, following the actions of The Cumberland County Grand Jury, in which the indictments were handed down for Prescription Drug Fraud (x4 counts) and TennCare Fraud (x2 counts). Crossville Narcotics Detective’s efforts led to the charges being presented to the June 27, 2016 session of the grand jury. With this most recent effort:

Joshua Bertram Clark – 36 years old, who is currently being held at the Fentress County Jail following an arrest for similar crimes in that county, was served with the Cumberland County indictments and, once released from Fentress County, will face an additional $30,000.00 bond in Cumberland County.

This investigation, spanning over 10 months and involving agencies in more than 6 counties in Tennessee, uncovered stolen prescriptions which were forged and passed, using several names at multiple pharmacies, for the receipt of illegal Schedule II narcotics. In addition to the fraudulent/stolen prescriptions, TennCare was also fraudulently used to help purchase some of the prescription narcotics. These latest actions by the Crossville Police Department’s Narcotics Detectives demonstrate the Department’s resolve to eradicate illicit narcotics and protect the families and children of our community.

This information was provided by the Crossville Police Department.
