A Bulls Gap man who has been reportedly supplying methamphetamine to both Greene and Hawkins Counties was taken into custody today following a search of his home.

Deputies of the Greene County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit were assisted by deputies of the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit and the Greene County Sheriff's Office SWAT team in executing a search warrant today at the residence of 37-year-old Michael Chad Myers in the 2000 block of Gap Creek Road. According to a press release from the Greene County Sheriff's Department, police discovered approximately 1,065 grams of meth and nearly $4,000 cash inside the home.

Myers, also known as Milk Man, was taken into custody on charges of possession of a schedule 2 drug for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to distribute, and maintaining a dwelling for drug use, sales and storage.

The investigation of Myers has been ongoing since August 2018. A prior search warrant was executed on June 26 and Myers was found to be in possession of meth and firearms. He was arrested in that incident, but made an $80,000 bond. Since that time, Myers has continued to reportedly be a source of supply of meth to both Greene and Hawkins Counties.

Myers' bond on the current charges has been set at $100,000.
