Sevier County Pair Charged with Selling Large Amount of Marijuana

Two Sevier County residents have been arrested for allegedly selling a large amount of marijuana and authorities say some was sold in a school zone.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, a Sevier County Grand Jury earlier this month returned indictments for 47-year-old Randy Alan McClure, of Pigeon Forge, and 50-year-old Jeannie Sue Howard, of Sevierville, as a result of an investigation by TBI Special Agents and the Sevier County Street Crimes Task Force that began in May 2015 and found they were selling a large quantity of marijuana, some of which was sold within a school zone.

McClure is charged with six counts of Sale and Delivery of Marijuana and two counts of Conspiracy to Distribute 10 Pounds or more of Marijuana. Officers arrested McClure on Tuesday and he is being held in the Sevier County Jail on $75,000 bond.

Howard faces two counts of Conspiracy to Distribute 10 Pounds or more of Marijuana. She was also arrested Tuesday and booked into the Sevier County Jail, but will be released under the conditions of a previously posted bond on unrelated charges.

All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
