Convicted Drug Dealer Arrested on Trafficking Charges

RUSSELL, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A convicted drug dealer has been arrested on trafficking charges.

Detectives with the F.A.D.E. Drug Task Force and Russell Police tell Hobert "Scott" Gearheart was arrested Tuesday.

After receiving tips from neighbors, police executed a search warrant at Gearheart's home in the 400-block of Beech Street.

They say they found prescription pills, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a large amount of cash inside.

Gearheart is charged with two counts of trafficking a controlled substance, trafficking marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and wanton endangerment.

Detectives say Gearheart was previously convicted of drug trafficking back in 2001, following an undercover investigation by the F.A.D.E. Drug Task Force.
