Register staff report

RICHMOND — A Friday traffic stop on Water Street led state troopers to arrest the driver, David Beverly, 26, of Richmond on marijuana trafficking and other charges, according to a KSP news release.

After discovering suspected marijuana during the stop, troopers obtained a warrant to search Beverly’s residence and discovered additional drugs and drug paraphernalia, the release stated.

In addition to several traffic violations, Beverly was charged with trafficking in marijuana, trafficking a controlled substance within 1,000 yards of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and cultivating five or more marijuana plants.

He was taken to Madison County Detention Center from which he was released the same day on a $500 cash bond.

On Saturday, troopers from the Richmond KSP Post responded to an anonymous complaint of drug activity at a residence on Winston Road near Irvine where they discovered narcotics and drug paraphernalia, the release stated.

A juvenile found in the home was placed with family members after troopers arrested Deanna Winburn, 33, of Richmond, and Christian Chuney, 25, of Detroit.

Both face three counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Chuney and Winburn were both lodged in the Estill County jail, but a jail employee said Monday she was unable to disclose their bail terms.
