It would appear that a lot of news has been reported in the Beechgrove area in the past five days. With that in mind, here is another story that is a follow up to one we reported on Monday.
A Coffee County man may face federal charges after authorities said he built two pipe bombs and put them in the car of people planning to testify against him during an upcoming criminal trial. The pipe bombs were not detonated, but authorities said they were fully capable of exploding.
Robert Garrison, 41, is charged with trying to intimidate a witness, possession of a prohibited weapon and initiation of a process to manufacture methamphetamine.
Warren County’s sheriff said Garrison targeted two confidential informants who were planning to testify against him in a separate case where he is charged with delivery of a schedule II substance and promoting the manufacture of methamphetamine. The ATF and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation assisted in the investigation. Garrison could face federal charges for building the pipe bombs. He remains in the Warren County jail on $250,000 bond.
