A federal prosecutor has charged the owners of the Brainerd Road Army Store store with selling equipment to make methamphetamine and is asking a federal judge to forfeit the store if the men are found guilty.
Tony Dewayne Honeycutt and Terry Michael HoneyCutt each face a charge of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, according to court documents.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Woods filed the charge. He alleges that the men profited by as much as $300,000 from the sale of meth manufacturing equipment from 2008 until 2010.
As part of the proposed forfeiture, Woods is asking a federal judge to turn over the 19,000 square-foot property at 5102 Brainerd Road and force the men to pay $300,000.
