Crimetracker: 2 arrested in Hawkins County on drug charges

HAWKINS COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A traffic stop Friday night ended with the arrests of two Hawkins County men.

Deputies say 18-year-olds James Tessier and Patrick Ryan were pulled over for only having one tail light, but during that stop officers soon found a bottle of liquor in the back seat and marijuana under the passenger seat and in the console.

Deputies say they also found a large amount of cash. The men reportedly admitted that it came from illegal drug sales.
