Kingsport, Tenn. -

     Two men are facing charges after police say they witnessed them in the middle of a drug deal.

     Kingsport Police tell us on Tuesday night they spotted Robert Collier and Marcello Fernandez sitting in a car at a parking lot near West Stone Drive.  Police say when they approached the car they saw Fernandez holding a bag containing Suboxone pills which he shoved into his pocket.

We're told when police tried to apprehend him he resisted, but was eventually taken into custody.

     Police say they also found a substance believed to be marijuana in the car that Collier told them he was there to buy. Police say they also seized about 150-dollars in cash.
