Steven Ray Hensley, 46, of 65 Victoria Lane, Chuckey, was charged Wednesday night with possession of Schedule II drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, Greeneville police Officer Roy Milton said in a report.
Officers received a call of "traffic in and out of the back rooms of the Days Inn," at 935 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy., the report said.
On arrival, officers made contact with Hensley, who was attempting to leave in a car.
"(He) stated he was not staying in the motel," the report said.
A Roxicodone pill was found in cigarette pack cellophane in one of Hensley's pants pockets, and a cut straw was found in the center console of the car, the report said.
Bond was set at $2,000 pending a first scheduled General Sessions Court appearance on Friday.
