NASHVILLE – A joint operation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Drug Investigation Division, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol SWAT Team, with the support of Mt. Juliet Police Department narcotics investigators, has resulted in the arrest of an Old Hickory man on a drug-related charge involving heroin.

During the course of the months-long investigation, Agents developed information that heroin was being sold out of a residence at 10454 Central Pike in Mt. Juliet. On Wednesday, authorities from TBI and THP executed search warrants at two residences in that area: the home on Central Pike and a home at 3305 East Yorkshire Court in Old Hickory. At both locations, authorities seized narcotics and drug paraphernalia. During Wednesday’s activities, authorities also arrested James Donte Burns, a resident of the East Yorkshire Court residence.

Authorities charged Burns (DOB 1/7/1980) with a count of Possession with Intent to Deliver. He was subsequently booked into the Wilson County Jail. The investigation remains active and ongoing. A current booking photograph was not available at the time of this release.
