Tennessee Pastor Busted Trying To Sell Pills To Undercover Police
An Anderson County, Tennessee preacher was arrested after allegedly trying to sell drugs to undercover officers in Morgan County.
[su_center_ad]According to deputies, they caught Genesis Hawkins through an undercover drug operation in Oliver Springs. Hawkins and the deputy had set up a meeting to buy 60 pills of hydrocodone on Tuesday, but when he arrived, he had only 40 pills, WBIR reports.
Hydrocodone is an addictive semi-synthetic opioid which is derived from codeine.
Hawkins was charged for possession of hydrocodone for resale, according to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office.
Is his first name really Genesis and he’s a preacher?
Perhaps he took “Then shalt thou be delighted in the Lord, and I will lift thee up above the high places..” too literally. Or maybe he’s just a hypocrite.
