Two Men Indicted for Narcotics and Firearms Offenses After More Than Four Pounds of Fentanyl and Nearly Thirty-five Pounds of Cocaine Found in Downtown Nashville High-Rise Apartment
NASHVILLE – Dustin L. Truett, 40, of Lyles, Tennessee, was sentenced today to fifteen years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, announced United States Attorney Henry C. Leventis. In July 2023, Truett pled guilty to a three-count Indictment charging him with Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of Drug Trafficking, and Possession of a Firearm by a Previously Convicted Felon.
The convictions stemmed from an incident in December 2020, when law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Truett’s residence. During the search, they recovered a gun safe, two bolt-action rifles, a bolt-action shotgun, digital scales, and ammunition. Inside the safe, they recovered $33,765 in cash, a stolen AR-style semi-automatic rifle, and 319 grams of 92% pure methamphetamine. Truett had previously been convicted of multiple felony drug offenses and was prohibited by law from possessing firearms.
The case was investigated by the Hickman County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorney Rachel M. Stephens prosecuted the case.
