Investigators expect more charges to be brought against Hawk; specifically, Captain Mike Salomonsky with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office estimated at least six federal charges will be added. He states this is a multi-agency investigation that includes their department, the FBI and DEA.

Investigators believe many of the drugs, which included prescription pills along with powdered Cocaine and Fentanyl, may have been stolen from pharmacies in other locations.

Salomonsky said the drugs were found in a home in the Harvest/Toney area of Madison County. He described it as a “drop house” for the drugs, as no one was living there.
