A Spring City man and woman are facing several drug-related charges after investigators with the Rhea County Sheriff’s Department alleged that the couple sold heroin and fentanyl.

Jamison Everett, 23, and Sabrina Brittan, 23, both of Spring City, were arrested on Monday, June 15, and are also facing a firearm-related charge as well.

At around 1 p.m. on Monday, Rhea County Sheriff’s Department deputies executed a search warrant at the couple’s home on True Road in Spring City.

“Upon entering the residence, both subjects were in their bedroom,” Rhea County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Charlie Jenkins said. “I found in their bedroom three loaded long rifles on both sides of the bed, two loaded pistols and an open blade knife between the mattresses.”

Jenkins said that also underthe bed, deputies found what they believed to be heroin and fentanyl.

“Under the bed was a small black bag with three clear bags,” Jenkins said. “In the clear bags was a white powdery substance in one, a brown substance in another clear bag and a pink substance in the other clear bags.”

Jenkins said that deputies also found drug paraphernalia at the residence, including a set of scales, used syringes, a glass “meth pipe” and other items.

When interviewing Brittan, Jenkins said she told investigators that the couple had been selling heroin together for nearly a year.

Both Everett and Brittan were arrested and booked into the Rhea County Jail.

They were both charged with possession of a Schedule I substance fentanyl for resale, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance heroin for resale, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to jail record, Everett’s bond was set at $40,000, and Brittan’s bond was set at $20,000. They were both still incarcerated as of press time Friday.
