A Henderson County Drug Enforcement Unit investigation led to the arrest of a 26-year-old man in Athens Tuesday, for possession of crack cocaine and marijuana.

Carlos Santana Hull was booked into the Henderson County Jail on a charge of manufacture with intent to deliver a controlled substance. He was released Wednesday after posting $100,000 bond.

The charge is a first-degree felony, and carries a punishment range upon conviction of five to 99 years, or life in prison.

Shortly after 10 a.m., Tuesday, HCSO reports said, the DEU obtained a warrant from Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Sue Starnes to search a residence at 205 Broadmore St. in Athens for illegal drug activity.

Investigators, assisted by the HCSO tactical unit, arrived at the location, and entered the residence.

Inside, officers found more than .5 ounces of crack cocaine, and a small amount of marijuana.

Hull was arrested at the scene, and booked Tuesday afternoon on the charge.

The DEU continues to investigate drug activity within the Athens area.
