SEVIERVILLE (WATE) - Two Sevier County men were arrested Thursday after officers found narcotics in their car during a traffic stop.

The Sevier County Sheriff said a traffic officer stopped David Cushman, 42, of Gatlinburg and Timothy Uner, 49, of Sevierville around 10:00 a.m. on Chapman Highway at Shiloh Church Road on a seat belt violation.

Officers then discovered the driver had an active warrant for violating probation in Sevier County.

Officers then searched the car and found Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Alprazolam, Xanax, Valium, and Dilaudid along with a pistol, $1546 in cash and drug paraphernalia.

They also found several unfilled prescriptions and appointment cards from doctors and pain clinics in the region.

The two men were arrested and officers seized the items and the car.

Cushman was charged with eight counts of possession of a Schedule II narcotics with intent to resell, unlawful possession of a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Uner was charged with one count of intent to resell narcotics, drug paraphernalia and probation violation charges.

Both men were transported to Sevier County Jail where they were arraigned before a magistrate.

Cushman is being held without bond. Uner is free after posting a $3,000 bond.

The pair will be in court on Nov. 9.
