21-year-old Keesean Campbell was charged with counterfeit controlled substances when authorities from at least 5 different federal, state and local agencies busted him with a baggie of fake meth at a local Walmart.
On March 5th, Violent Crime Gang Task Force Officer Keith Sutherland along with authorities from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, and the 18th Judicial Drug Task Force located Keesean Campbell at the Walmart located at 2421 Powell Avenue. This arrest was to serve an outstanding federal warrant for violation of pre-trial release.
A search of Keesean Campbell’s person revealed a yellow baggie of a white crystallized substance. Upon questioning, Campbell told officers that the substance was Epsom salt and admitted his intention was to “rip off someone”. The substance was tested and that analysis showed the substance was not methamphetamine. Counterfeit substances are still illegal under the Tennessee Code Annotated 39-17-423.
On March 19th, Keesean was arrested and charged with sell, deliver, or distribute counterfeit controlled substances. His bond was set at $2,500.
