WARREN COUNTY, TN - In a coordinated effort by the McMinnville Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Department, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, a search warrant for drugs was executed just 27-miles east of the Rutherford County line. The warrant was served at 184 Molly Lane in McMinnville, TN. The target of the operation was identified as 48-year-old Timothy E. Trainer. During a search of Mr. Trainer's vehicle, law enforcement uncovered 4 pistols, approximately 6 grams of meth, and a small amount of money that included around $250 in cash on his person.


The investigation intensified as authorities delved into the residence on Molly Lane, revealing a significant cache of illegal substances and weapons. The search yielded approximately 377 grams of meth at his residence and when added to the 6-grams of meth that authorities say was found in the suspects vehicle, it equates to 13.5 ounces – or just 2.5 ounces shy of one pound. McMinnville Police also confirmed they found 322 hydrocodone pills, around 9 oxycodone pills, approximately 44 suboxone, 4 long guns, scales, numerous baggies, and a much larger sum of cash to total over $11,000. Trainer now faces multiple charges related to the possession and distribution of controlled substances. Currently, Trainer is being held under a $66,000 bond at the Warren County Sheriff's Office, pending further legal proceedings.

This joint operation underscores the commitment of local and state law enforcement agencies to combat illicit drug activities and ensure the safety of the community. The successful execution of the search warrant reflects the dedication of these agencies in addressing the serious challenges posed by drug-related offenses in the region.
