AUXIER — Prestonsburg police made a substantial marijuana bust at Auxier Thursday, following what they say was an extensive investigation.
According to Prestonsburg Police Asst. Chief Brian Hall, two people were arrested at Mead’s Trailer Park on charges of possession marijuana. Hall said they have yet to weigh it to see if it is over eight ounces, but that it was a substantial amount.
“We knew that they had marijuana there. You could smell it all over the place. You could smell it in the driveway,” Hall said.
Eric Gibson and Bridget Case, both of Auxier, were arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and also warrants. The couple’s home in Mead’s Trailer Park was raided at 11 a.m., Thursday morning.
According to Hall, some apparent drug residue was also found in the trailer and has been sent to the lab for testing.
The couple is now being lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center and will likely be arraigned in the Floyd District Court in the coming days.
