Kentucky State Police arrested a Richmond man for first-degree controlled substance trafficking (more than 10 dosage units of opiates), third-degree controlled substance possession (drug unspecified), tampering with physical evidence and prescription controlled substance not properly contained.
Troopers executed a search warrant at a home on East Irvine Street, and while they were on their way to the home Wednesday night, they saw Phillip Bryant, 67, East Irvine Street, walking from the garage to the inside of the home, according to a citation. Troopers told him to stop, but he entered the home and closed the door anyway.
Troopers then went inside the home and found Bryant in the bathroom, standing next to a toilet, the citation states. Bryant was ordered to move away and when he did, police found several teal colored pills in the toilet.
Troopers conducted a search of the home and found a large amount of hydrocodone pills in various over-the-counter pill bottles and a ziplock bag, the citation states. There were also several alprazolam pills. The pills were found in Bryant's bedroom, along with a substantial amount of U.S. currency inside his safe and wallet.
Bryant was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Thursday afternoon, according to online jail records.
