WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- Four people were arrested and are now facing a slew of charges after a report of two people fighting led to a meth bust. 

It happened around 10:30 p.m Monday at a residence near Partin’s Grocery along HWY 92E. 

When officials arrived, the feuding parties had separated. While continuing an investigation, an officer made contact with Kenneth R. Branham, 35, at a nearby residence. Branham initially gave the officer a false name. Once his real name was determined, it was revealed that he was wanted for arrest after violating his parole.

After being taken into custody, Branham was searched. Inside a storage pack attached to his belt, the officer located several bags of crystal methamphetamine, digital weighing scales and unfilled bags. A K9 was called in to search his vehicle, where a search led to the discovery of a jar/bags containing meth, a box containing marijuana and two pills.

Another person at the scene, James C. Storer, 34, exhibited suspicious behavior. Upon a search of the place where he was seated, a small bag of meth was found.

Another male at the location, David Lancaster, 44, was determined to be wanted for arrest.

A female, Jessica Johnson, 31, was also determined to be wanted for arrest.

Branham was arrested for his warrant and charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (meth), giving an officer a false name, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal possession of a legend drug, possession of a controlled substance not in its original container and possession of marijuana.

Storer was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth).

Lancaster was arrested for failure to appear and theft by unlawful taking warrants.

Johnson was arrested for a failure to appear warrant.
