STAFF REPORT • Aug 24, 2019 at 3:00 PM

BULLS GAP — Deputies from Hawkins and Greene counties seized more that $10,000 worth of meth and nearly $4,000 in cash while executing a search warrant Tuesday at the home of a man known as “Milk Man.”

According to a report filed by Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team assisted the Greene County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit and the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit in executing a search warrant at 2600 Gap Creek Road, Bulls Gap as part of an investigation into the sale and delivery of meth.

The operation was a joint investigation by the two agencies and has been ongoing since August 2018.

The target of the investigation was Michael Chad “Milk Man” Myers, 37. 

Lawson said the nickname was acquired because Myers’ father was a dairy farmer. 

A prior search warrant had been executed on June 26. Myers was found to be in possession of meth and firearms, and he was arrested then on those charges.

Lawson said Myers has continued to be a source of meth to both Greene and Hawkins Counties.

Upon execution of the search warrant Tuesday at the Myers’ residence, police allegedly located approximately 1,065 grams of meth and approximately $ 3,992 in cash.

Myers was arrested and charged with sale and delivery of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was being held in the Greene County Jail on $50,000 bond.
