Hancock County Man Facing Several Drug Charges
A Western Kentucky man is arrested on multiple drug charges. Around 10:30 Monday night, Kentucky State Police and Hancock County Sheriff's Deputies were tipped off to possible drug activity on Oak Road, just outside of Lewisport. They say a search of the home turned up items used to make meth, as well as prescription pills, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. 35-year old David Merritt was arrested and charged with several drug related crimes. He's being held in the Breckenridge County jail.
