ROGERSVILLE — Hawkins County deputies seized drugs, cash, guns and several vehicles Thursday from a Rogersville man accused of trafficking large quantities of pills.

For several months, the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit has been investigating alleged drug trafficking by Walter Leon Trent, 53, 112 N. Charles St., Rogersville.

Deputies executed a search warrant Thursday at Trent’s home and allegedly seized an unspecified quantity of morphine and suboxone, for which he did not have a prescription.
