An undercover drug investigation by investigators with the TBI Middle Tennessee Opioid/ Overdose Task Force has led to the arrest of one man, and the seizure of more than 1,000 fentanyl-laced pills, according to a press release from the TBI.

During the summer and fall of this year, officers with the TBI Middle Tennessee Opioid/Overdose Task Force began investigating a series of overdoses across the Middle District of Tennessee, which were caused by illegally-manufactured pills containing fentanyl.

During the course of the still-ongoing investigation, agents developed information that indicatedGiovanni Luevano was responsible for selling 11-hundred of the fentanyl-laced pills.

On Dec. 11, TBI Drug Investigation Division agents, Murfreesboro Police Department detectives, and agents with DEA Tactical Diversion arrested Luevano, 25. He was charged with distribution of schedule II drugs, and was booked into the Rutherford County Jail on a $125,000 bond.


The Task Force includes TBI Special Agents with the Drug Investigation Division, officers from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, Murfreesboro Police Department, Smyrna Police Department, and La Vergne Police Department, as well as DEA Tactical Diversion.
