$50,000 Drug Bust by Sheriff’s Dept. and Drug Task Force, Assisted by Monticello Police

February 12th, 2008 by

Last Thursday, Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober and 10th Judicial Drug Task Force Special Agent John Carter arrested Keith Tenner, of Monticello, with a large amount of what appeared to be crack cocaine.

Sheriff Gober told MonticelloLive that Tenner resisted arrested, but was taken into custody by Carter, Gober, and Monticello Police Officer Bo Norris.

Tenner was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and resisting arrest.

Tenner’s bond was set at $400,000 Friday.

Approximately 9 ounces of what appeared to be crack cocaine was confiscated, which has a street value of around $50,000.

  2. that man got 30 years in all for that and u got people in Drew County that kills people and only get 10 years what is Drew County saying its ok to kill people but not sale drugs

  3. ~jayme~ says:

    That’s sometimes what it seems like Drew County is saying, but we have to remember that police don’t decide on sentencing…juries do. While I’m frustrated at recent decisions, I respect their decision. I would much rather have a chance of imperfection and occassional injustice in our system than not have that protection at all. I couldn’t imagine living somewhere that doesn’t have our judicial system, where arrest, trial and sentencing is decided by one person. I would much rather let ten guilty go free than one innocent be punished unfairly.

    I also AM thankful for the police, whether someone gets 10 or 30, because I know that’s not their decision….they just arrest them, and I don’t much care for murderers OR crack dealers. If injustice is done, it’s the citizens’ fault who decided the outcome of the charges, not the authorities.
    Perhaps those on jury duty in upcoming weeks will remember recent decisions and how serious their responsibilities really are, being ever more diligent in deciding cases they have been called to hear. That’s the only way our justice system will work effectively…if we MAKE it work effectively…
