LEXINGTON, Tenn. — A man is accused of selling more than just food from his family’s business. “I was going there today and I found out this happened,” said John Parson, who often went to the fish trailer to eat lunch. “The van is sitting right there, and I couldn’t believe that.” James Courtney Hart was arrested Thursday on accusations of selling meth from his family’s food trailer business, Little Kitchen, in Lexington. Officers said the arrest comes as a result of months of investigating by Lexington police and Henderson County deputies. “They were actually selling it out of the business, which led to our search warrant that we obtained,” Investigator Stephen Clark with the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department said. “It led us here today where we did recover several amounts of cash and some extra methamphetamine.” Hart is charged with possession of Schedule II with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. Officers say more charges may be forthcoming. The trailer was removed from the premises Thursday afternoon. Hart was taken to the Henderson County Jail.
