BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn.—A Kingsport, Tenn., man found with more than $10,000 in cash was arrested on three drug charges just after midnight this morning, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Lisa Christian said.

Miguel Sosa Martinez, 26, was charged with possession of schedule II drugs for resale, possession of schedule IV narcotics for resale, maintaining a dwelling where narcotics are sold, and possession of drug paraphernalia, Christian said.

County vice officers arrested Martinez after they searched his home on Mullins Street, she said. The officers seized a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu, a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am, four grams of cocaine, 1.4 ounces of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $10,787 in cash as they made the arrest.

Christian said the Martinez investigation has “been going on for a while and it just happened to end last night.” She said other arrests are expected.

Christian also said Martinez told vice officers he is from Mexico and has been in the country illegally for about three years. He is being held in the Sullivan County jail on an immigration hold, Christian said.

Look it's Raffycanlas!! Ha ha, we found you out buddy. I'm going to miss your posts. Maybe they will let you have internet access in the clink. Seriously though, that's one less illegal in Tenn to worry about. I guess I won't be eating borrittos anymore, one less person to cook them for me.

This isn't bad

At least he didn't get arrested for rape or murder. Being a street corner pharmacist isn't all bad.
