Dustin Lee Miller, 29, pled guilty to selling methamphetamine Tuesday in Carter County Criminal Court in Elizabethton, receiving a 10-year sentence that he must serve in the Tennessee Department of Corrections.
Miller’s charge originated from an undercover narcotics sale conducted by a joint operation of the Elizabethton Police Department and Carter County Sheriff’s Office on August 7, 2018. Drug agents from those agencies utilized an undercover informant to purchase methamphetamine from Tiffany Arnold Reed, who led the informant to 126 Oakmont Drive in Elizabethton. According to the officers, Reed took the informant’s money inside the residence which was the known residence of Miller, and she returned with 2.94 grams of methamphetamine. Miller’s residence where he was selling methamphetamine was within 1,000 yards of Happy Valley High School.
Reed previously pled to her role in the offense on December 20, 2019, receiving an eight-year sentence on house arrest.
Miller will have to serve his time until granted parole after service of at least 30 percent of his sentence.
