July 1, 2011
Cannon County Sheriff's Investigator Anthony Young said the department received information that two men had visited Rite Aid Pharmacy multiple times Thursday and purchased a product containing pseudoephedrine.
Pseudoephedrine is one of the key components used in the making of methamphetamine.
Investigator Young and Sheriff Darrell Young went to the pharmacy and encountered the subjects. A search of the both persons uncovered packets of drugs containing pseudoephedrine on each of them.
The subjects gave officers permission to search their vehicle. Inside was found a black backpack full of components used to make meth.

His brother, Aubrey Sanders, of 7584 Bradyville Pike, Murfreesboro, was charged with initiating the process of manufacturing methamphetamine and maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine.
Bond for Robert Sanders was set at $50,000. Aubrey Sanders' bond was set at $100,000. Initial court date for each defendant is Aug. 2.
