The Davidson County grand jury has indicted 39 people in a scheme to buy the ingredients to make meth.

Investigators say Shane Oakley, 30, of 14 Brookside Court, was the primary meth cooker, and he is accused of manufacturing meth for resale in west Nashville, and Humphreys and Benton counties.

Oakley's girlfriend, Teresa Kingsmill, 39, is alleged to have recruited so-called "smurfs," some of them homeless, who were hired to go into area retail stores and purchase pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in the manufacture of meth.

Oakley is charged with initiating the process to manufacture meth, four counts of felony meth possession in a drug free school zone, engaging in a meth conspiracy and promotion of meth manufacture.

Kingsmill is charged with initiating the process to manufacture meth, four counts of felony meth possession in a drug free school zone, engaging in a meth conspiracy, promotion of meth manufacture and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Both are jailed in Metro Nashville.

Metro Sgt Gene Donegan, who worked on the undercover operation, says Kingsmill recruited homeless people from the Union Rescue Mission, offering to pay them $4 for every box of pseudoephedrine they bought from the drugstores.

The others involved in the meth ring are charged with engaging in a meth conspiracy and promoting the manufacture of meth.
