GARRETT — A Floyd County man saw his day go from bad to worse, as state troopers attempting to serve a bench warrant on him found drugs, weapons and other contraband items in his home.
Members of the Kentucky State Police Post 9 Criminal Interdiction Team went to the home of Jason K. Chaffins last Wednesday to serve him with an arrest warrant, after following up on drug information. Once inside his residence, officers noticed two handguns, drugs, drug paraphernalia and items used to make methamphetamine.
In addition to the bench warrant, Chaffins now faces charges of manufacturing meth, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, endangering a child, and two counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
Officers assisting the Criminal Interdiction Team at the scene included Sgt. Ronald Peppi, DE/SI East, TFC. Bo Cure /K-9 Special Operations, Tpr. Brad Hamilton, Tpr. Josh Brainard and Wayland Police Officer Brian Ratliff.
This incident remains under investigation by Tpr. Zack Bryson, of the KSP Post 9 Criminal Interdiction Team.
