Kentucky Man Busted for Allegedly Dealing Dope

Oneida, TN (2018-02-06) A Kentucky man is facing drug possession charges after authorities allegedly found a large quantity of prescription drugs, marijuana and cash in his car.

Estill R. Hubbard, 36, of Manchester, KY was arrested Saturday night following a traffic stop in Oneida.  According to an arrest warrant written by Oneida K-9 Officer Toby Jeffers, Hubbard allegedly had a small pharmacy in a bag in the back seat of his car.  Authorities allegedly recovered 84 Hydrocodone tablets, along with small quantities of Oxycodone, Clonazepam, Tramadol, and Adapex from the vehicle, along with more than $4100 in cash.  Authorities say the drugs were packaged for resale.

Jeffers reportedly stopped Hubbard near the Sandcut Apartment complex, where he said he was going to visit a friend.  Hubbard reportedly told officers he was driving from Kentucky to Morgan County, where he had been staying.

Hubbard was pulled over for not having a license plate properly displayed on his Nissan pickup.  After becoming suspicious, authorities deployed a canine, which alerted to the presence of an illegal substance in the driver’s side door.  Authorities reportedly found a bag containing marijuana in the door, along with a second bag in the back seat containing the prescription drugs and cash.

Hubbard was charged with possession of schedule II and IV controlled substances for resale, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance for resale (two counts), possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of the registration law.
