The SCKDTF executed a search warrant just after midnight with the help of the Logan County Sheriff’s Department, the Russellville Police Department and Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Steve Kinney at a residence on the corner of Caldwell and Third streets in Russellville.
The warrant was the result of an investigation after receiving information about drug trafficking at that location.
The information was obtained after members of the Logan County Sheriff’s Department made a traffic stop and found an individual carrying marijuana and cocaine.
After searching the residence at Third and Caldwell, agents found marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs, hallucinogenic drugs, scales and a large amount of money.
Three people were arrested: Joshua O. Duncan, age 27; Kelvan A. Mitchell Jr., age 35 and Angela M. West, age 30 – all of Russellville.
Duncan was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance first degree (cocaine), possession of a controlled substance third degree and possession of a controlled substance second degree (hallucinogen).
Mitchell was charged with possession of a controlled substance second degree (hallucinogen), possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking in marijuana.
West was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, prescription drugs not in a proper container and promoting contraband.
All three were lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.
West was also arrested on outstanding warrants in Grant County. She had previous convictions for robbery and wanton endangerment.
Mitchell had previous convictions for burglary, possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Duncan had previous convictions for possession of cocaine and trafficking in cocaine, having received a 10-year sentence.
“The South Central Kentucky Drug Task Force would like to thank all citizens for their drug tips and a special thanks to our local police officers and sheriff’s deputies for their outstanding work while on patrol,” said SCKDTF director Jerry Smith. “Without them, we would not be as successful.”
