Sheriff Bill Lewis said his department is continuing to aggressively control the sales of illegal drugs in Lewis County.
Lewis said two men were charged last week in connection with trafficking and possession of controlled substances.
Deputy Dwayne Stone said that on Monday morning his office received a call that a man was passed out behind the wheel of a vehicle on Butler Hollow Road.
Stone said that as he approached the driver's side of the vehicle, he saw a man holding plastic baggies and said the man told him that he was just resting.
Stone said the baggies contained four Hydrocodone tablets and seven Alprazolam.
The man, Aaron T. Webb, 25, of Franklin Furnace, Ohio, was arrested and charged with second degree possession of a controlled substance, third degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance not in its original container.
He was lodged in the Lewis County Detention Center.
Deputy Johnny Bivens said that on Tuesday he conducted a traffic stop, which resulted in the arrest of a Carter County man and the seizure of some 800 pills and cash.
Bivens said Douglas Kiser, 44, of near Carter City, was arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants.
A search of the man's vehicle revealed prescription medications along with pill crushers, digital scales, plastic baggies and $1,883 in cash.
Bivens said the pills included Hydrocodone, Xanax, Oxycodonoe, Soma and other prescription medications. He said the street value of the pills was estimated at $8,500.
In addition, Kiser was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia as well as first, second and third degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He was lodged in the Lewis County Detention Center.
