Early Thursday morning, Williamsburg police went to a residence to serve a man with an indictment warrant for drug possession, and ended up charging him with drug trafficking in addition to the warrant.
About 1:30 a.m., Williamsburg Police Officers Dorman Patrick Jr. and Johnny Fulton went to Bradley Lewis Hamblin’s River Road residence to arrest him and serve him with an indictment warrant for first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), according to a news release.
After Hamblin was arrested and taken into custody, a police investigation lead to the discovery of suspected crystal methamphetamine, which is an extremely potent form of meth, distribution baggies, two sets of digital scales, and a .22 caliber rifle, the release noted.
The contraband and firearm were collected as evidence and seized.
Patrick charged Hamblin, 28, with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine) less than two grams in connection with the drugs found at the scene.
In addition to the drug possession warrant, Hamblin was also served with a failure to appear in court warrant.
He was lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
