HAWKINS COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

A Rogersville man is now facing multiple drugs charges, after a lengthy narcotics investigation led Hawkins County Narcotics officers a home on North Charles Street.

After months of investigation, Walter Trent was found to be in possession of quantities of morphine and suboxone, for which he did not have a prescription. There was also a substantial amount of cash, which is believed to be proceeds from illegal drug sales, as well as numerous firearms which had been strategically placed throughout the home.

The home and property were extensively equipped with video monitoring/ recording devices, as well as motion sensors, which sounded interior alarms when vehicles were approaching the home.

Trent is free on $200,000,000 bond, and awaiting a May 22nd court date.

This case remains under investigation, and further prosecutions are possible.
