KINGSPORT — A man reportedly on parole for drug convictions in Memphis, Tenn., has now been arrested in Kingsport, with police saying $6,000 worth of crack cocaine was seized from his residence.

At 3 a.m. Tuesday Kingsport SWAT members and vice detectives served a warrant at 3955 Kent St., allegedly locating 60 grams of crack cocaine and materials used to package the drug.

KPD Det. Nathan Elliott says officers also seized more than $3,000 cash, believed to be the proceeds of illegal drug sells, and a quantity of marijuana and prescription narcotics.

Two people were located at the residence when the warrant was served. Police say Rashad Sanders, 33, is currently on parole for a conviction of selling crack in Memphis, with information that he was now dealing in Kingsport prompting their investigation. Ramona Eugene, 19, was also taken into custody at the scene.
