According to Sheriff Greg Speck, two individuals were arrested on drug related charges after a search warrant was executed at a residence in Pulaski County Tuesday night, July 10, 2018.
Tuesday afternoon, Deputy Marcus Harrison received information from Constable Mike Wallace and Constable Gary Baldock about the whereabouts of a subject wanted on Pulaski County Circuit Court Indictments. Deputy Harrison located the suspect vehicle leaving the Bend of the Lakes area of Pulaski County and conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle.
Deputy Harrison approached the vehicle and located James Bradley Townsend, age 49 of Stevens Drive, Somerset, Kentucky, operating the vehicle. Townsend was taken into custody. Upon searching the vehicle, officers located a large sum of cash. Deputy Harrison was assisted on the traffic stop and vehicle search by both Constable Wallace and Constable Baldock.
