Two baggies of powder, which later field tested positive for fentanyl, were allegedly found in Whaley’s pocket. He also said there was a third baggie, but he became scared when police entered the home, tossed the bag and was unsure of where it fell, according to reports. Police found the baggie on the mattress in the bedroom.

Whaley’s wallet was also found with $547.72 inside, police said. After he was read his Miranda rights, Whaley made the comment about selling $700 worth of drugs a day, according to reports.

During the search of the residence, a bag with a white rock substance inside was found. It later field tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.

Police also reportedly found $120 in cash under the bedroom mattress.

Whaley is being held in the Fayette County Jail on two fifth-degree felony trafficking in drugs charges, a fifth-degree felony possession of heroin charge, a fifth-degree felony possession of methamphetamine charge, and probation violation.
