A local man was arrested on Monday, October 21 on drug-related 
charges, following an investigation into the location of a possible 
stolen boat.
    According to Wayne County Sheriff Tim Catron, Eric Rhule, of 
Monticello, was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance 
first degree (less than two grams of methamphetamine).
    Deputies had responded to a residence on Spann Hill during the 
investigation of the location of the boat. Catron said his office had 
also received numerous complaints about possible drug trafficking 
activity from the same residence.
    The owner of the residence gave deputies consent to search the 
property.
    During the search, deputies found methamphetamine, drug 
paraphernalia, items consistent with drug trafficking activity and 
$1,300 in cash. All these items were seized.
    Rhule, who was arrested by Deputy Cody Neal, was lodged in the Wayne 
County Detention Center. Neal was assisted by deputies Travis Bell, Jacob Vanover and K-9 unit Fauster.
