Three arrested in Franklin County on drug charges

An investigation undertaken by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department on allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor, resulted in the Oct. 9 arrest of three on drug charges.

According to information received at the Rushville Republican, Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies began an investigation into an alleged sexual misconduct complaint involving a juvenile. During that investigation, deputies found that possible drug activity was occurring at the residence of Garrett L. Simmons, 26106 Sanes Creek Road, in Laurel.

At that time, a drug investigation began by the F.C. Drug Taskforce and a search warrant was obtained for the property.

A search of the property resulted in deputies finding approximately 10 pounds of marijuana as well as marijuana growing supplies. Several controlled substances were also located, but are pending identification.

Simmons is charged with two felony charges, maintaining a common nuisance and illegal possession of a controlled substance. He was also charged with a class “A” misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Also arrested at the scene were: Alvin E. Eden, 52, of Rushville. Eden is charged with three class “D” felony charges, cultivating marijuana, dealing marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. David Thompson, 49, of Laurel, was arrested on a class “B” misdemeanor charge of visiting a common nuisance.

A conviction on a class “D” felony charge can result in jail sentence of six months up to three years and a monetary fine of up to $10,000.

A class “A” misdemeanor conviction can result in a jail sentence of up to one year and a fine of up to $5,000. A class “B” misdemeanor charge can result in a jail sentence of up to 180 days and $ 1,000 fine.
