FOIA - TN Bureau of Investigation - Operation Candy Crush

J Ader filed this request with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation of Tennessee.


From: Carlton Purvis

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Tennessee Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All documents, reports, and emails pertaining to "Operation Candy Crush".

For assistance in turning over responsive records, here is a brief explanation of the operation from a local news source:

"Two weeks ago, authorities in Rutherford County carried out “Operation Candy Crush,” which led to the padlocking of 23 stores. In all, 21 people were indicted for selling gummy candies allegedly containing a marijuana derivative.

Samples were bought undercover and then sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for further analysis. " [ ]

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.

Please note that I am a citizen of Tennessee, and am using MuckRock's services to help manage and track my request.
