Carroll County Sheriff Officers served a search warrant Saturday that wrapped up a three-month drug trafficking investigation and resulted in two arrests and the seizure of about five pounds of various types of marijuana, drugs, guns, cars, cell phones and approximately $45,000 in cash.
According to Deputy Rob Miller, the sheriff’s office served the search warrant with assistance by the Carrollton Police Department and Kentucky State Police at a home on Comanche Trail in the Indian Hills subdivision just east of Carrollton.
Arrested were Justin Williams, 31, and Alexis Vicars, 25, who were occupants of the home. He and she were both charged with trafficking marijuana, possession of a controlled substance first-degree, possession of a drug unspecified, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence. He was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
“We’ve been investigating this guy for about three months and doing numerous things that I can’t get into because the investigation is still ongoing, but we’ve been at it awhile,” Miller said.
Items seized included a large amount of various types of marijuana including THC wax, Vape THC, THC edibles, two handguns, an AR 15 rifle with a 100-round drum magazine, several vehicles and approximately $45,000 in cash. The Deputy was assisted in the warrant execution by CPD officers and KSP.
“There were six different versions — or flavors — of marijuana and a small amount of suspected methamphetamine, Miller added. “An amount of cash like that suggests a pretty good size trafficking operation.”
Miller declined to say if additional charges or arrests are pending but the case is still under investigation.
