Year-long investigations net 4 drug arrests

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Knoxville Police Department's Organized Crime unit rounded up four people as the result of a year of investigations that spanned multiple agencies, a KPD spokes person announced late Thursday night.

Yolanda Meza Harper, 38, was indicted on five counts of Sale & Delivery of Schedule II, including Adderall and Methadone. Laurie Pelot Gooch and Kasie Westmoreland Robinson, 28, were also indicted on Sale & Delivery of Schedule II, but those were connected to Oxycodone; while Randall Ray Houser, 40, similar charge relates to Adderall.

KPD said all but one of the charges, which was against Harper, is a class C felony and carry a minimum sentence of 3 to 6 years. The other charge, a Class B felony, carried a minimum sentence of 8 to 12 years and because it happened in a School Zone, it requires day for day service of the entire sentence.
