HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A Hopkins County man is facing meth trafficking charges.

Kaleb “Taco” Browning is charged with trafficking meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On August 5th, detectives with the Madisonville-Hopkins County Vice/Narcotics Unit located Kaleb “Taco” Browning. They say he was trafficking meth.

During the investigation, detectives received information from sources that “Taco” was a significant source for crystal meth in the Nortonville/White Plains area.

When detectives served a federal warrant on Travis “Rockhead” Baldwin in June, they say “Taco” had two ounces of suspected crystal meth and a 9mm semi-automatic handgun in his possession.

Baldwin was also arrested and charged. He was also found with a large amount of cash.

Browning is being held on a $1,000 cash bond in Hopkins County Jail. His court date is scheduled for August 9th.
