MARTZ --Tipsters provided information that led to the investigation and arrest of a rural Clay City man Wednesday evening for alleged drug charges.
Members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department executed a search warrant and discovered illegal drugs and weapons at Kenneth Hummer's residence.
There is no official 911-address for the trailer located behind a home at 8478 South State Road 59 where the arrest took place, which is located just south of the Martz area.
"It was something fresh," Sheriff Mike Heaton told The Brazil Times about the investigation. "This individual's name has popped up here and there. We've had a few complaints in the past, but nothing concrete."
Heaton said when officers entered the "bits and pieces of a trailer" someone was inside allegedly throwing guns out a window. During a search, officers discovered an undisclosed amount of harvested marijuana that was drying and six guns.
Hummer was booked into the Cay County Justice Center on preliminary charges of possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia.
A class D felony charge of neglect of a dependent was added during the booking process because two juveniles were inside the trailer while alleged drug use took place.
Initially booked with a $7,000 cash bond with 10 percent allowed, Hummer bonded out shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday. He is scheduled to appear in court for formal arraignment on Sept. 29.
Officials also confirmed that Ashley Nester-Hummer, 24, Clay City, is also considered a suspect in the investigation, although no preliminary charges were filed at this time.
Both cases will be reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
