A multi-law enforcement agency operation resulted in the arrest of two individuals accused of trafficking a large amount of marijuana into Cumberland County. Yesterday (Thursday, December 28, 2017), authorities received information about a scheduled delivery to the Crossville Municipal Airport. Upon arrival, law enforcement officers discovered a small plane on the tarmac and its pilot, 47-year-old Dennis Howard Bonneau. In searching the plane, authorities discovered approximately 66 pounds of pharmaceutical grade marijuana inside the aircraft. Agents also encountered a woman inside the airport’s lobby, identified as 34-year-old Erin Elizabeth Reed, who was in possession of a bag containing approximately 90 pounds of pharmaceutical grade marijuana, along with edible marijuana products. Agents arrested Bonneau, of Weston, Florida, and Reed, of Arcata, California, and charged each with one count of manufacturing, delivery, or sale of Schedule VI drug. Authorities subsequently booked each into the Cumberland County Jail, where their bond was set at a half million dollars each. Agencies participating in this operation included the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Drug Investigation Division, the Crossville Police Department, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, the Middle Tennessee High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Homeland Security Investigations.
