RUTLEDGE – A Rutledge man is facing multiple drug charges after local officers assisting with the execution of a federal search warrant reportedly recovered drugs and paraphernalia from his residence, Monday, April 10. According to reports, officers with the Grainger County Sheriff’s Department assisted officers with the Knoxville Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, (KPD ICAC), the United States Department of Homeland Security Investigations Unit (DHSI) and the Tennessee Highway Patrol Criminal Investigation Division (THP CID) as they served a search warrant on the Chahokia Drive residence of Seth Reynolds Hoover, 31. Case Agent Glen Blache had reportedly obtained a federal search warrant for “items related to the possession and distribution of child pornography and child exploitation material.”Grainger County Sheriff’s Department Detective Captain Leon Spoone said he went to the front door and knocked on the storm door, while announcing officer’s presence. He then knocked on the main door, which was reportedly not secured, and opened as he knocked. Hoover was reportedly in a reclined position on a love seat, and appeared to have just awakened. Spoone reported detecting a strong odor of marijuana. As a search of the residence was conducted, Spoone reportedly observed items in plain view on the dining table, which he believed were used in the packing of narcotics. Drugs, drug paraphernalia and large sums of U.S. currency were allegedly recovered during a search of the residence. A state-issued search warrant was obtained after Spoone consulted with Grainger County Sheriff’s Department Detective Lt. Brandon Smith, and the 4th Judicial District Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force executed the state warrant.Officers reportedly recovered about four pounds of marijuana, 150 grams of hashish and eight dosage units of other narcotics suspected tobe LSD, $28,646.92 cash, scales, bags and a 2007 Honda Accord. Hoover was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, deliver or sell a Schedule I controlled substance, possession with intent to manufacture, deliver, or sell a Schedule VIcontrolled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm with intent to go armed during the commission of a felony.

    So what about the child porn? NO CHILD PORN was found! This is just a bullshit way of ruining someone’s name, someone’s life! Don’t believe everything you hear in the news.

      Seems to me, he did a fine job of ruining his own life. But hey, lets just blame the cops for everything.

      Plus, I’m guessing they may not have done a complete search through electronic devices when this was released. The items found were in plain sight. Sometimes they need to be able to “hack” into protected electronics to find other information. Seth made his bed with the other things within the house. “Ruining someone’s name, someone’s life”? 4 lbs of marijuana? LSD? $30k laying around?

    I’m not here for an argument, but I do want the true facts to be known. The child porn was never mentioned in the arraignment nor was Seth charged with anything in regards to the subject of child pornography. The people saying that “he made his own bed”… Seth is genuinely one of the kindest hearted individuals and the fact that this was published accusing him of charges that WERE NOT EVEN BROUGHT UP IN COURT is WRONG!!! Period.

    You know I firmly believe in innocent until proven guilty, child porn or not they still found a good amount of drugs in his home. As far as you all saying he’s the nicest kindest hearted person around and wanting to name call did you all know bout the supposed rape of his ex gf from high school, yes I said supposed cause it is one side of the story but I have never seen him at any of the events the kid is in and giving the fact the mother is white and the kid is mixed with Oriental I’d say rape or not it’s his cause let’s face it there’s not a lot of Orientals around east TN and the guy that helped raise the kid told me the story………
