ROGERSVILLE — Police nabbed a Rogersville woman for allegedly attempting to sell marijuana Sunday night to an undercover officer after one of her recent customers was arrested on an unrelated warrant and agreed to set her up.

Tracy Nunley Eisenhuth, 46, 132 Burton Road Apt. C25, Rogersville was arrested Sunday night on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday officers with the Rogersville Police Department and Hawkins County Sheriff's Office served an unrelated arrest warrant on a woman staying at the Comfort Inn motel off of Highway 11-W near the Park Boulevard intersection.

RPD Chief Doug Nelson told the Times News Thursday that the first suspect was found in possession of marijuana at the time of her arrest, and upon being questioned about where she purchased that marijuana, agreed to cooperate with police.

"(The first suspect) said she was buying it off of Tracy Eisenhuth who was selling out of her mom's house on Burton Plaza," Nelson said. "(Officers) told her, If you'll work with us why don't you text her and see if you can buy some more."

The first suspect then texted Eisenhuth, who allegedly agreed to sell her another two grams.

They arranged to meet in 20 minutes, and the first suspect described the vehicle she'd be in, which was an undercover RPD vehicle.

"When they got there (Eisenhuth) walked right up to them, she tried to sell them pot, and they arrested her," Nelson added.

A search of the residence allegedly revealed Eisenhuth to be in possession of an additional 1.2 grams of marijuana.

RPD officers Cambren Gibson and Chris Funk participated in the arrest of Eisenhuth.

As of Thursday Eisenhuth was being held in the Hawkins County Jail on $5,000 bond pending an appearance in Sessions Court on Feb. 27.
