Berea police make felony drug arrests

BEREA — Berea police charged several people with felony drug offenses last week.

A traffic stop was conducted Friday on Prince Royal Drive for a minor traffic violation, according to a BPD report. 

The officers reported the driver appeared nervous, and they learned the passenger in the vehicle had an active arrest warrant. The passenger was detained, and six oxycodone pills were found in his pants pocket, the report stated.

The officers reported that the driver consented to a search, and 13 oxycodone pills were in his pants pocket. After interviewing both subjects, officers learned that a third party had been involved in purchasing the pills, according to the report.

Officers arrested 22-year-old Jonathan Chestnut, 23-year-old Joseph Chestnut and 32-year old Ricky Adams, all of Berea.

All three were charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Jonathan Chestnut and Adams also were charged with controlled substance prescription not in proper container.

Joseph Chestnut also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Nov. 6, a traffic stop was conducted on Hwy. 21 East for a minor traffic violation. 

Officers reported obtaining consent to search the vehicle and conducted a pat down on the driver.  Inside of his pocket, they located a cigarette packet containing a clear plastic bag with a white powdery substance, according to the report. 

After being questioned, the subject said that the substance was methamphetamine, the report stated.  Officers arrested 47-year-old Larry Tillery of Berea and charged him with first-degree possession of a controlled substance.
