A child welfare check requested by the state’s Department of Children’s Services led to the arrest of an alleged prescription painkiller distributor on Thursday, Dec. 5, according to deputies with the Rhea County Sheriff’s Department.
Law enforcement officials released the report to The Herald-News on Thursday.
On Dec. 5, sheriff’s deputies were tasked with checking the welfare of children at the home of Angela Lovins, 43, on Bradmeyer Drive in Dayton. When they arrived at the residence, deputies found the door open and could see Lovins and Derek Adams, 31, also of Bradmeyer Drive, “in the living room counting out pills,” according to the report.
