A Rutherford County man who would travel to Nashville to deal heroin is now jailed in Murfreesboro as the result of a joint investigation led by the MNPD’s Specialized Investigations Division with assistance from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.
Willie Landriel Norris, 45, a convicted cocaine felon, was taken into custody this week at his Antebellum Drive home in Murfreesboro. Recovered during a search of the house were $58,000 cash, 14 guns, two of which had been reported stolen, more than 10 ounces of heroin, 7 grams of cocaine, 10 ounces of marijuana, 100 various pills, 194 Suboxone strips, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia related to the repackaging of drugs.
Subsequent searches at a number of Rutherford County storage units linked to Norris led to the seizure of 12 vehicles, which are alleged to have been acquired through drug proceeds.
Norris is charged with possessing heroin and marijuana for resale, and gun possession in the commission of a felony. He is being held in the Rutherford County Jail in lieu of $180,000 bond.
