MARYVILLE (WATE) - Blount County deputies say a smurfing investigation led them to make three meth arrests.

Deputies say they were notified when some suspicious people were trying to buy the ingredients to make meth at a local pharmacy.

They say deputies stopped two vehicles in Maryville after conducting surveillance on them.

That's when investigators say they found pseudoephedrine and meth.

Now, 27-year-old Talitha Dorsey, 41-year-old Bryan Yantis, and 38-year-old Naeem Melvins are facing meth charges
