BREAKING NEWS: Search nets illegal drugs, weapons

Thursday, September 4, 2008

MARTZ -- A search of a southern Clay County home conducted by the Clay County Sheriff's Department Wednesday evening turned up illegal drugs and weapons.

CCSD officials arrested Kenneth Hummer, 47, Clay City, after a search of his residence turned up harvested, drying marijuana and six guns.

"As we were making entrance into the house, somebody was throwing guns outside the window," CCSD Sheriff Mike Heaton told The Brazil Times.

Heaton said there was no 911 address for the residence, but it was just south of Clay City in the Martz area.

"It was kind of bits and pieces of a trailer they were living in," Heaton said.

Heaton said information officers had received led to Wednesday's investigation.

"It was something fresh," Heaton said. "We've had a few complaints in the past, but nothing concrete.

"This individual's name has popped up here and there."

This story will be updated by The Brazil Times as soon as more information becomes available.

Cant wait to see the full story. Check the surrounding counties, you hardly ever hear of any drug related arrest or bust. But in Clay county its almost on a nightly basis! Great Job Sheriff Heaton and Clay Ocunty Deputies.

I think the info given to you by the CCSD is misleading. This was no large drug bust. They arrested no dealer in Martz. Weapons siezed during the raid we all leagal, as he was not charged with any gun violation. There was no large amount of marijuana siezed. It is possible that this was a simple misdemeaner possesion. No guns were thrown from the rear of the HOME as there are no windows on the rear of the home. A minor in the home was tackled and possibly assulted with a "swat member's" weapon, uncalled for. Since he was just opening the door for them. The CCSD also forgot to inform the paper of was that they were'nt looking for Ken Hummer, they were searching for a Sean "Rodney" Sullivan, a convicted felon in which Ken has never meet. They also swore that they had the "true fugitive" pinned down in the surrounding property, when infact Sean has never been or was not on the the premisis. Job well done, I think not, Hyping up the story I think so. Go catch a real dealer, selling to 15 yr. olds, and spend our tax dollars on something more pressing than misdemeanor possesion charges. Check your "credible sources" a little better.

And, still, illegal is illegal ~ so if Hummer was arrested it must have been a legitimate arrest ~ good job as usual CCSD ~

What you are saying is that the CCSD is guilty of "manufacturing" links and associations to get a warrant. Then, hoping they would find something and if they didn't would plant something that would allow them to give the "bust" an air of legitimatacy?

Pretty serious accusations, however, if we hold our local police above such accusations and think it can't happen, we're doing ourselves a real disservice.

Don't mince words (I won't): if you think the CCSD did this and have any evidence, I'd encourage you to you put this information in the hands of the defense of the victims. However, if you're just blowing off because you don't like cops, we don't want to hear it.
