Police served a drug-related search warrant at a North Main Street home Thursday evening, resulting in the arrest of the resident and the recovery of heroin, pills and drug paraphernalia.
Just before 9 p.m. Thursday, officers from the Washington C.H. Police Department executed the warrant at 307 N. Main St. and made contact with Keith A. Lyons, 41, who was reportedly seated on the couch in the living room.
During a search of the residence, several hypodermic needles – one with a clear liquid inside – were found and scales were located under the couch in Lyons’ bedroom, reports said.
A camera system was found and seized because Lyons allegedly used the system to monitor law enforcement activity near the home. Shortly thereafter, a clear cellophane bag that contained a brownish substance was found, police said. It later field tested positive for heroin.
Inside the bedroom, a metal pipe with burnt residue was located and it later field tested positive for marijuana, according to reports. Several white oval pills that later field tested positive for “Gabapentin,” an anti-seizure drug, were found.
On a table in the living room, a suboxone strip was found along with a plastic container that contained six hypodermic needles, a shoe-string tie-off and cotton filters, according to police.
Lyons was arrested and charged with trafficking in drugs, permitting drug abuse, possession of heroin, possessing criminal tools, possession of drug abuse instruments, possession of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
Lyons is being held in the Fayette County Jail on a $13,500 bond.
