A local man has been arrested after police say they found more than $10,000 worth of crack cocaine in his apartment.

23-year-old Jerelle Hill was arrested Monday night, after McCracken County deputies received a complaint about illegal drug activity at Hill's home in the College Avenue apartments.

Police seized two handguns they believe might have been stolen, six bags of crack cocaine, marijuana, Xanax, and several hundred dollars believed to be proceeds of illegal drug sales.

Police say Hill, who was out on bond on a pending felony case in McCracken County, had been selling cocaine for the past seven months.  Additionally, Hill has a prior conviction for marijuana trafficking out of Virginia.
Hill faces felony trafficing charges, as well as numerous drug possession charges.
