The Scott County Sheriff's Office has seized dozens of guns, hundreds of pain pills, and thousands of dollars in cash at a home near Hunstville.
According to Drug Agent Kris Lewallen, the home was raided this week after numerous complaints from citizens.
Officers confiscated a large amount of drugs, including 189 Dilaudid capsules, 485 80mg OxyContin, 102 15mg Percocet, 463 40mg Opana, 124 Xanax and three 10mg Hydrocodone. They also found 46 marijuana plants growing in the residence, along with the cash and 45 guns.
The estimated street value of the drugs seized is about $121,000 dollars. Lewallen said all the prescription drugs could be traced to a pain clinic in Knoxville.
