Two men were arrested Oct. 22 in two separate incidents involving drug raids.

Narcotics Agent James Wall said he and other officers executed a search warrant on Hunters Cove Drive in Madisonville after receiving word drug activity had been ongoing at the residence.

Wall said John David Scarbrough was at the house and officers found a 9mm pistol with a round in the chamber, three bags containing 2.1 grams of Heroin (Fentanyl), nine white pills believed to be Hydrochloride, a strip of Buprenorphone, Naloxine and a substance thought to be Meth.

Wall read Scarbrough his rights and Scarbrough reportedly admitted he’d been selling Heroin and was using the gun for his protection.

Scarbrough, 37, was charged with the sale of Heroin, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, simple possession of meth, simple possession of a schedule IV narcotic and simple possession of a schedule III narcotic.

On the same day, Narcotics Agent Dalton Rinehart and other officers served a warrant on Bryce Jacob Willis at a home on Star Lite Drive.

Rinehart said a search of the property turned up 20 grams of a powdered substance in seven bags, a .22 caliber pistol, several clear plastic bags and $980.

Rinehart said one of the bags tested positive for Heroin (Fentanyl) and after being read his rights, Willis admitted he was selling Heroin and had the gun for his protection.

Willis, 24, was charged with possession of Heroin for resale and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
