Man Charged With Supplying Teen Drug Ring

(Memphis) A Fayette County man has been charged with providing drugs to a group of teens who then sold them in the Memphis area.

Richard Manuel Stewart, 35, is charged with five counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Manufacture, Deliver or Sell.

In a joint operation, Stewart’s homes was raided.

Inside, investigators found 603 grams of marijuana, 985 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms, 711 grams of MDMA (Molly) and 980 hits of LSD.

Stewart, who is a convicted felon, had a shotgun, rifle and four handguns, one of which was reported stolen from Memphis.

Prosecutors say Stewart, “was targeting teens and young adults with ‘gateway’ and ‘party drugs.’

    Amy don’t let this one get away like the last one or have you forgotten already its only been a few weeks do your job and prosicute this animal to the fullist exstint of the law or beyond

      She has never had professional job except as a prosecutor. She is a holster-sniffer from WAY back.

      I’m not thrilled with the alternative, but Amy just does not have the right stuff. So I’m voting for Joe Brown, just to get rid of her.

        I wonder what they do with all the drugs after a raid and its been submitted to (the) evidence room

        And btw I think u misunderstood me yesterday when I used the word despised….i was referring to plainclothes. Do u get me now?

    • MemphisDad

      You’re referring to the drunk that was groping women on Beale street and was then shot by the women’s husband. If so you’re a racist idiot. It’s a shame that punk lived.

    Chris likes to Teabag. Even though Drugs are bad, he didn’t shoot or kill anyone. The people who buy drugs have a choice, people who get killed don’t. Big difference so don’t be stupid……. Oops I forgot Her’s Your Sign !!!

  • not sure

    TN does not have a 3 time loser law, but this guy should be locked away and throw away the key this POS had kids selling some very dangerous contolled substances. Thank God these kids did not die from this POS providing these dangerous drugs.

      The only drug he was selling that could kill you is the Molly. LSD and Shrooms could definitely alter your perception of the world for better or for worse, but not kill you unless you took an ungodly amount which is unlikely. As for weed… Do I really need to explain. Not Dangerous or deadly.

        Most of the opposition to marijuana legalization comes from BIGOTS who hate the people who use it. It is amazing how many conservative folks are pro-weed.

        As for psychedelics — if you’re sane when you trip, you’ll be sane when you come down. Crazy people shouldn’t take the risk, but for anyone else, psychedelics are life-enhancing, not harmful.

        The anti-drug zealotry in this society is driven by people who need their necks stretched. Or their minds expanded.

        It is NOT an innocent intellectual error they are making, but a deliberate, conscious, act of hate.

    Chris it doesn’t matter if he is black or white, he didn’t shoot anyone. I don’t agree with that guy selling drugs but he didn’t make them sell it. The people that was selling it would have just found another supplier to sell for. It’s going to happen accept it. People choose to do drugs. It’s not killing people like people shooting people. He should get punished but dope is legal in some states and will be here soon. What will people say then. I would rather someone be high than somebody getting shot constantly.

    • Chris Williams ii

      What about the ILLEGAL drugs he was selling like molly?!?! And just in case u didn’t know, it’s still ILLEGAL to sell weed even if u live in a state where u can smoke it legally…..idiot

  • ChrisWilliamsJrisTheLoadthatshould'vebeenswallowed

    Sounds like the Whiskey girl wants to help get rid of the evidence. Lol

  • ChrisWilliamsJrisTheLoadthatshould'vebeenswallowed

    If I didn’t know how would I be an idiot? I have friends that grow it and sell it legally. I don’t smoke it so I haven’t asked them details

    DA Amy Weirich is an extremely talented and devoted city servant. People like her are the only reason this city is still habitable. If she were black there would be no contest in the upcoming election. She would win hands down.

    • Nonya Bidness

      If she is such a good DA then why is crime in Memphis out of control? She sets no examples. She does however encourage dog-piling of charges on people to get them to accept a conviction on lower charges. This only no only hurts people that can’t afford a lawyer but lawyers cost a ton of money so it hurts those people in the wallet.

      Don’t be fooled, Amy is in this to get power for herself and to keep her lawyer friends rolling in cash. But she will be gone next election cycle because she has lost the trust of the middle class whites that elected her.

    Amy sucx, she has messed stuff up. Go check it out and do real research not just cuz you think you know.

    • HaterLover

      She got your DNA, why you so mad at her, she just following directions from her boss. Now who is that and what does he look like, no question marks.

  • HaterLover

    No matter how serious things get the best some ppl can do is attack your grammar lol! It’s apparent MCS didn’t do to bad, you comprehend CW so well. Now gtfoh!

  • Hard Truths

    Since she went on the campaign trail, Amy’s been dropping the g’s off of “-ng” words.

    Her consultant has told her to talk that way to the Teabaggers.
