A Cocke County man faces charges after representatives of the Department of Children's Services asked Cocke County officers to assist Saturday at a residence on St. Tide Hollow Road. Deputy Lt. Michael Whitmer said he went to the home of Paul R. Morris, 74, where he observed Trazodone, marijuana seeds, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Outside in his vehicle Officer Whitmer found bottles of Alprazolam and Hydrocodone which had been filled in 2014 and 2015. There also was $2,400 in cash with the prescription medications. A drug screen of Morris tested positive for Alprazolam and opiates. The subject now is charged with possession of Alprazolam and Hydrocode with the intent to resale, simple possession of marijuana and possession of Trazodone without a prescription.
