CHURCH HILL (WATE) - The narcotics unit of the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office issued a warrant Friday night on suspicion of drug trafficking.

Upon arrival at 734 Ordinance Dr. in Church Hill, the officers found Bobby Grayson, Joy Harmon and Christopher Houston inside an apartment unit.

HCSO says the officers found many Subutex pills, a form of opioid as well as a loaded syringe with melted-down Oxycodone inside it.

A significant amount of cash was seized from the residence, which is believed to have been accumulated from illegal drug sales.

The Hawkins County Sheriff's Office said in a statement released Sunday that the investigation stemmed from a recurrence of noticeable drug sales going on.

Grayson and Harmon are being held on $75,000 bond, while Houston is being held without bail for no releasing his address to officials.

All three are being charged with multiple drug offenses.
