Operator of Unicoi County dump site arrested on drug charges
A dump site in Unicoi County is temporarily shut down after its operator is arrested on drug charges.
Sheriff Mike Hensley said Douglas Shane Church, the operator of Limestone Cove Dump Site, is facing several drug related charges.
He said this comes after about a three week investigation, saying illegal drug activity was happening at the site.
Hensley said families visit the site often, so the drug activity was putting the public in danger.
He said Mayor Greg Lynch will have to find someone to operate the site because it's a county owned site.
Church is charged with Possession schedule III drugs for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling where drugs are sold.
