Kentucky State Police arrested a man on several drug trafficking charges after troopers served a search warrant at his residence Wednesday night.

Troopers seized 1.4 grams of three individual baggies of suspected heroin inside another bag, 111.1 grams of marijuana, 0.5 grams of suspected cocaine wrapped up in a baggie, 25 dosage units of diazapam in a pill bottle without a label and 18 dosage units of hydrocodone in another pill bottle without a label, according to a citation.

They also found two handguns, and George Walker, 49, Chris Drive, Richmond, is a convicted felon, the citation states. No one was home during the time of the search.

Before troopers searched the residence, Walker was seen by the Madison County Drug Task Force leaving his residence, and Madison County deputies initiated a traffic stop and arrested him on an indictment warrant that charges him with trafficking in a controlled substance (second or subsequent offense, heroin) and second offense trafficking in a controlled substance (carfentanil or fentanyl derivatives).

Troopers then charged Walker with first offense controlled substance trafficking (heroin), marijuana trafficking (less than 8 ounces), first-degree controlled substance (less than 4 grams of cocaine), third-degree controlled substance trafficking (less than 20 dosage units, drug unspecified), first-degree controlled substance trafficking (10 dosage units or more, drug unspecified) and two counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Walker was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Thursday afternoon, according to online jail records.

Kentucky State Police arrested Kenneth Robinson Jr., 33, Crooksville Road, Richmond, for third-degree operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol/drugs/etc., driving on a DUI suspended license, prescription controlled substance no properly contained and third-degree controlled substance possession (drug unspecified) Wednesday night after troopers received a call about a vehicle accident on Battlefield Memorial Highway.

Richmond police arrested Shawn Damrell, 42, Logston Lane, Richmond, for first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine) after officers were called to the Speedway on Merrick Drive, where it was reported he was offering people drugs for a ride.

Officers arrived, and Damrell first stated he was Jodie Foster, along with providing officers with an incorrect birthday, according to a citation. Officers asked Damrell if he needed a ride, and he said yes.

Officers then asked Damrell if he was offering people drugs for a ride, and he said no, the citation states. Officers asked to search Damrell's vehicle, and he agreed, but before allowing them to search it, he grabbed a cigarette pack and threw it behind a stack of boxes beside Speedway.

Officers asked Damrell why he threw the cigarettes, and he said it was an empty pack, the citation states. Upon searching the pack, officers found a folded piece of paper. They asked Damrell what it was, and he said it was a phone number.

Officers again asked what was inside the paper, and Damrell said it was a little bit of methamphetamine, according to the citation. Police opened the folded piece of paper and confirmed it was methamphetamine.

Damrell was taken to the MCDC, where he remained Thursday afternoon, according to online jail records.
