An Elizabethton man is facing charges after police say he sold 60 hits of LSD along with other drugs to undercover officers.
Police arrested Adam Andrew Kennett, 31, of 514 Cedar Avenue, Elizabethton, Thursday and charged him with four counts of sale of a Schedule I narcotic, two counts of sale of a schedule VI drug and two counts of violation of the drug-free school zone law.
Shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, officers bought six paper strips containing 60 doses of lysergic acid diethylamide, also known as LSD, from Kennett for $400, Elizabethton Police Department Officer Trevor Salyer said. On Nov. 9 undercover officers bought 1.5 grams of a form of Ecstacy known as “Molly” from Kennett, Salyer said.
The charges against Kennett are the result of an ongoing investigation by the police department’s vice unit, EPD Capt. Joy Shoun said.
Kennett is being held at the Carter County Detention Center on a $124,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Carter County General Sessions Court Dec. 23.
