The Pilot, a newspaper in Southern Pines, NC, reported that Jeff Hardy was arrested on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steriods, and is in the Moore County, NC, jail.



In an article posted at stated:

Hardy, 32, of 265 Boys Camp Road,?Cameron, was arrested after a search of his residence yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia, according to a press release.

A joint investigation conducted by officers with the Moore County Sheriff’s Office narcotics and select enforcement units and the Fayetteville Police Department led to the arrest.

Vicodin and anabolic steriods are Schedule III substances, while Soma is a non-controlled prescription pill.

They went on to say that Hardy’s bail was set at $125,000 for charges of felony trafficking in opium, two counts of felony possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule III controlled substance, felony maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substance, felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. They also have a photo of Hardy posted.

The charges of trafficking and intent to sell or deliver controlled substances indicate that this is more than a charge of possession of drugs.

Matt Hardy later posted on his Twitter that he had posted bail for Jeff, and claimed that the stories were not true.
