Williamsburg police seized about five pounds of processed marijuana, handguns and cash and arrested two people while executing a search warrant early Thursday morning.
The arrests were the result of a three-month investigation by Williamsburg Police Officers Johnny Fulton, Justin Taylor and Greg Rhoades.
Fulton charged Trittan Parks, 25, and Kirstyn Swanner, 23, both of 400 King Mountain Spur Road, with trafficking in marijuana over five pounds, possession of drug paraphernalia and third-degree possession of a controlled substance.
About 12:30 a.m., Williamsburg police officers executed a search warrant at their residence and seized marijuana, marijuana wax, marijuana vapes, three handguns and about $6,000 cash along with numerous items of drug paraphernalia, according to a Williamsburg Police Department release.
Police also recovered digital scales and vacuum seals, according to arrest citations.
Swanner’s arrest citation indicates that police also discovered suspected Suboxone pills.
Both were arrested about 2:39 a.m. and lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
Judge Fred White entered not guilty pleas for the couple during their arraignment late Thursday morning in Whitley District Court.
After Fulton testified during a preliminary hearing Monday morning, White ruled that there was probable cause to send the case against them to the Whitley County Grand Jury.
He then amended Swanner’s bond to a $7,500 bond at 10 percent, and Park’s bond to a $15,000 bond at 10 percent. This means that the two could be released from custody after Swanner posted $750 cash and Parks posted $1,500 cash.
Both were released from jail late Monday afternoon.
Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird, Detective Bobby Freeman, Officer Cody Jeffries, Officer Dorman Patrick Jr., and K-9 Officer Elijah Hunter and his K-9 partner, Vicko, assisted with the arrest.
