The Smyrna Police Department had a hand in the seizure of $1.3-million, 200-pounds of marijuana and 20-firearms in Middle Tennessee. In addition to the Smyrna Police Department helping to recover the goods, the 20th Judicial District Drug Task Force, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Maury County Sheriff's Office, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Nashville District Attorney's Office all had a hand in making an arrest that started with a traffic stop. The drugs and the money were evidently headed to Middle Tennessee from Alabama. Those arrested face felony possession of marijuana charges.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
