CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – An investigation by Special Agents with the Drug Investigation Division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the arrest of two Tracy City residents charged with the sale and delivery of oxycodone and fentanyl.
Over several months in 2016, Agents with the Drug Investigation Division conducted undercover operations in Marion County, pursuing leads on fentanyl and oxycodone distribution.
