Kingsport couple arrested on meth charges following search of home by Sullivan County deputies

Posted: Updated:
SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

Two Kingsport residents were arrested Thursday on meth charges following a search of their home by Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

According to a SCSO news release, Anthony Tuell, 30, and Tara Tuell, 26, both of 1609 Stratford Road, were charged after deputies received information that the pair were reportedly making and selling methamphetamine in their home.

Vice and narcotics detectives went to the home and knocked on the door, but did not get an initial response from inside, even though they said they could hear movement inside.

Around 15 minutes later, deputies said Tara Tuell answered the door and claimed that she had been in the basement and did not hear them knocking.

She reportedly told deputies that her husband was not home, and gave them consent to search the home.

According to the release, deputies found Anthony Tuell hiding in the attic, as well as numerous items used to manufacture methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Anthony and Tara Tuell were both charged with promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine, maintaining a dwelling where drugs are used or sold and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Anthony Tuell was additionally charged with violation of probation and Tara Tuell was also charged with false reports.

The Tuell’s were arrested and taken to Sullivan County Correctional Facility.
