A Henry County man was charged Thursday in a Carroll County drug sweep.

Jonathon Taylor, 39, of Paris, was charged with three counts of sale and delivery of methamphetamine.

Taylor was booked into the Carroll County Jail and his bond was set at $50,000.

“Operation Thundering Justice” resulted in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, Huntingdon Police Department, McKenzie Police Department and the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department arresting 15 people from various cities in Tennessee.

The operation began in January 2020, according to information shared by the TBI.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected to be made in the operation.

“These arrests send a unified message that we will not tolerate this type of activity in our communities,” said Darryl Richardson, assistant director of the TBI Drug Investigation Division.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with the TBI on such a major operation,” said Matt Stowe, 24th Judicial District attorney general. “By taking these drug dealers off the street, we’re making the 24th District a safer place and hopefully there will be fewer parents wondering where their children are because of this operation.”
