A Murfreesboro man has been indicted on several charges, including fabricating evidence and electronic tracking of a vehicle following an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
At the request of District Attorney General Jennings Jones, TBI Special Agents began investigatingin March the circumstances of the discovery of drugs and a tracking device in and on a Rutherford County woman's vehicle.
During the investigation, TBI agents learned that Rutherford County detectives received a tip March 18 about a female who was in possession of drugs. Detectives stopped the female and obtained permission to search her vehicle, where they found drugs and a tracking device. The woman denied knowledge of the drugs or the tracking device. The investigation further revealed that the tracking device had been bought by Kevin Allen, a relative of the woman's ex-husband.
This week, the Rutherford County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Kevin Allen, 37, of Murfreesboro with one count of Distribution of Cocaine in a School Zone, one count of Burglary of a Vehicle, one count of Fabrication of Evidence, one count of False Report, and one count of Electronic Tracking of a Vehicle.
Allen was arrested on Friday and booked into the Rutherford County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
