NASHVILLE – A joint operation involving Special Agents with the Drug Investigation Division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Tactical Diversion Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Murfreesboro Police Department, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, and the Metro Nashville Police Department has resulted in the arrest of an Old Hickory man on drug-related charges involving heroin and fentanyl.
Last year, authorities began investigating a series of overdoses that took place across the Middle District of Tennessee involving fentanyl-laced heroin. During the course of the months-long investigation, Agents and officers conducted undercover operations and pursued leads on the distribution of fentanyl-laced heroin. Authorities developed information that identified one of the distributors of the potentially deadly drug combination as Reginald T. Womack (DOB 7/11/86).
On Friday afternoon, Womack was arrested and charged with one count of Manufacturing/Delivery/ Sale/Possession of Schedule I. He was booked into the Rutherford County Jail on a $175,000 bond. At this time, the investigation remains active and ongoing.
