Investigators from The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Drug Investigation Division, the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office, and the Murfreesboro Police Department have obtained indictments for 22 individuals accused of being involved in a large-scale drug operation.
Beginning in July 2014, the three agencies embarked on a cooperative, large-scale effort, involving numerous overtime hours and resources, to develop information related to the sale and distribution of heroin and cocaine throughout Middle Tennessee. Those implicated in the operation include the now former director of human resources in Wilson County, Christina Woodward, and those affiliated with two in-home care centers in Rutherford County. Ms. Keisha's Kids was operated from the residence of Lakeisha Smith and Jamarr Kuilan. Angels Day Care was operated from a residence in which Eric Patton lived. The day care's operator was not implicated in the case. Additionally, the investigation revealed Rawle Cecil Chapman and Latrisha Lashaun Chapman used their affiliation with Church Street New and Used Tires to distribute drugs.
