Investigators served the search warrant and seized prescription pain pills and over $10,000 in U.S. currency found hidden inside a shoe in a shoe box.
Investigators arrested Kevin Lamont Hayes, DOB 11/23/72, of Jacksonville, for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of less than Twenty Grams of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
