JELLICO, TN (WLAF) – On Monday morning, investigators with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and Jellico Police Department discovered tens of thousands of dollars of cash, illegal drugs in the kitchen, the bedroom, master bedroom and bathroom at a home at 478 Harlan Avenue, Jellico. Months of undercover buys culminated in Monday’s execution of the narcotics search warrant by members of the Sheriff’s Drug Investigation Unit, SWAT Team and Jellico Police Department.

“Our goal is to arrest every drug dealer that continues to pollute our community,” said Sheriff Robbie Goins. The sheriff adds, “We will search their homes, take their illegal drug money and arrest them.” On Monday, Goins officers and JPD officers did just that in the raid where they arrested Robert Antwon Johnson, the main target of the investigation, and Franklin Monroe Bolton.

Robert Antwon Johnson was the main target in Monday’s raid at his home on Harlan Avenue which is a block over from 5th Street in Jellico.

In addition to finding what is believed to be heroin, Methadone, Suboxone, agents located scales, a money counting machine, a hand gun, money bands and thousands of dollars in cash. The cash totaled more than $87,000.

Police say undercover buys were made for months at this home leading to Monday’s arrests.

Investigators learned that Johnson had previously been convicted in Criminal Court on six felony charges. He is facing charges of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony, possession of schedule III (sell and delivery), felony possession of drug paraphernalia and the manufacture, delivery and sell of a controlled substance. Bolton’s charges include four counts of for resale and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.

Investigators with the Campbell Sheriff’s Office and Jellico Police arrived at this home late Monday morning.

Johnson, 52, 478 Harlan Avenue, Jellico and Bolton, 54, 834 Little White Oak Road, Duff, remain housed in the Campbell County Jail this morning without bond. Each is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court this afternoon at 1pm. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/03/2022-6AM)
