Deputies doing welfare check find drug price list

Suspect charged with possession for resale

CROSSVILLE — When sheriff's investigators received a tip that drug activity may be going on at a rural residence they didn't expect to find packaged contraband, supplies to package more and a price list with the contraband.

As a result of the tip, Kenny Lee Bullock, 27, and Brittany Michelle Chrisulis, 20, both who listed 367 Bluebird Dr. as home, are charged with manufacture, delivery or sale of a controlled substance (marijuana) and simple possession of methamphetamine, according to court records.

Bond for both was set at $11,000 and both appeared in General Sessions Court Monday. Bullock was assessed a $250 Public Defender's Office fee. Chrisulis was assessed a $100 fee and both cases were continued to June 23.

Deputy David Moore wrote in his report that information was received by the department that alleged drug activity at a residence on Bluebird Dr. and that an indicator that marijuana was available for sale was a front porch light left on. If the light was off, the signal allegedly meant no sales were available.

Cpl. Jason Moore, K-9 Officers Kevin Phillips and Danny Stone and Moore then traveled to the residence to follow-up on the information. Once inside deputies allege they saw in plain view a marijuana pipe in the living room and marijuana in a clear plastic bag on a kitchen cabinet.

The woman was asked about the contraband but refused to allow deputies to conduct a search of the house. Chrisulis was taken into custody and when officers went to secure the residence, the discovered two small children sleeping in a bedroom.

The children's grandmother was called to take custody of the children and a search warrant was obtained for the house.

The resulting search netted deputies a black safe containing about 3.5 ounces of packaged marijuana, a loaded handgun, a substance deputies identified as methamphetamine and "a price list showing the cost for varying amounts of marijuana."

Deputies wrote in their reports that Chrisulis and Bullock share the residence and Bullock, who was not present, was served warrants the following day.
