A Jason Drive man was arrested Tuesday by Richmond police for an alleged robbery at knifepoint.

Bradley J. Chadwell, 27, was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery after an associate of his reported to police that she had been robbed, said Sgt. Willard Reardon, Richmond Police Department spokesman.

The woman told police Chadwell had taken $500 cash from her at knifepoint on Jason Drive, Reardon said.

Chadwell was also served with an outstanding warrant for a charge of trafficking in controlled substances after he was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, Reardon said.



Drug arrests

Reardon said police arrested four people Wednesday on warrants accusing them of drug trafficking following investigations by the department’s narcotics unit.

Gary Johnson, 46, of Luxon Drive, was arrested at 6 p.m. at his home and charged with two counts of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and one count of intimidating a participant in a legal process.

Frank Knight, 53, of Danielle Court, was arrested at 3 p.m. at his home and charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Linda C. Johnson, 52, of Westover Avenue, was arrested at her home at 6:10 p.m. and was charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

Taylor Jennings, 20, was arrested at 4:30 p.m. at McGregor Hall, his dormitory on Eastern Kentucky University’s campus, and charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

All four were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, Reardon said.
