Undercover investigations launched by Sheriff Tim Catron resulted in 
two search warrants being executed on Tuesday, July 2.
    According to Catron, the first warrant was executed at a residence 
on East KY 92 in the Coopersville area of Wayne County.
    The search resulted in approximately 730 grams of high quality 
marijuana being seized.
    Also seized were five rifles, three shotguns, three handguns, drug 
paraphernalia and $798 in cash.
    Deputies arrested Vernon Maxwell, of Monticello, and charged him 
with trafficking in marijuana (eight ounces to five pounds) first 
offense.
    Maxwell was lodged in the Wayne County Detention  Center. The 
investigation is continuing.
    The second search warrant was executed at a residence on Ridgewood 
Avenue. This search warrant resulted in a small amount of 
methamphetamine and marijuana, along with drug paraphernalia being 
seized. No arrests were made at the time, since the resident was not 
present during the search.
    That investigation is also continuing.
    Both search warrants were executed by Sheriff Catron and deputies Travis Bell, Cody Neal, Derek Dennis and James Barnett.
