ROGERSVILLE - A search of a Rogersville home by Sheriff's department deputies resulted in five arrests regarding drug use and child abuse. Last Thursday, officers responded to a home at 208 Persia Lane in Rogersville and executed a search at the residence, locating five adults in the residence: Kelly Samson, Robert Pintze, Robert Self and Brytnei Self, all of the previously stated address, and Robert Estes of 109 Rivershadows Drive, Rogersville. Initially, officers found drug paraphernalia throughout the home, including several used and unused hypodermic syringes, some empty and others contained liquid. Other items found include rolling paper and spoons with unspecified residue.
Officers located several additional questionable items in the first bedroom searched.
"Also found in one of the bedrooms was approximately one gram of a white, damp powdery substance which is believed to be the waste of 'oxycodone' pills after a person has drawn them into syringes to be injected, several notebooks containing drug ledgers accounting pills sold and money owed. Several prescription bottles with the label missing, cut straws and various other items used as paraphernalia in drug use" were found in the bedroom, according to the arrest report.
Also, while in the residence, officers spotted a bag, of what appears to be synthetic marijuana, along with other drug paraphernalia and $20 in case, hanging on a baby crib.
Various other pills, including what is thought to be Oxycodone and Xanax, were found in and around the home.
Officers did locate a small child with two adults, the mother of the child, Britnei Self, of the residence and her live-in boyfriend, Robert Pintze, also of the same residence. The room had a strong odor of burning marijuana and both adults admitted to smoking marijuana.
