Madison County Sheriff’s deputies discovered drugs and piles of cash in a Tuesday morning raid.  The location of the raid is in central Huntsville, just near the intersection of Drake Avenue and Whitesburg Drive.

A spokesperson tells us agents got their hands on $22,000 worth of oxycodone, plus another $40,000 in cash.

The investigation took them a few weeks and led them to 209 Wingate Avenue.  They say they’re pleased with the haul.

“If you’re selling narcotics, your day will come. It may be today. It may be tomorrow. It may be next week. But the thing about it is, we’re actively seeking people that are distributing narcotics as well as manufacturing methamphetamine in our community. And that’s a 24-hour-a-day process,” said Lt. Michael Salomonsky.

The Sheriff’s Office arrested 37-year-old Joshua Hasting in the case.  They say he lived with his dad, but his father does not face any charges.
