According to recent Henderson Police Department reports, HPD officers and Kentucky State Police DESI conducted an investigation Thursday evening. While officers were at a Kingsway Court apartment, they caught a whiff of marijuana emitting from Apartment A.

A search warrant was obtained that yielded 160 grams of high-grade marijuana, $466 in cash, a digital scale, pills and paraphernalia, HPD reported.

As a result, J’Kwan Rupert, 20, was charged with trafficking in marijuana (second offense) and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (acetaminophen/oxycodone).

In a separate arrest report, HPD officers and KSP DESI charged three Henderson residents in connection to a narcotics investigation Wednesday that resulted in the seizure of “a large quantity of methamphetamine” valued at $2,900 on the street.

Those named in the Wednesday arrests included Michael Williams, 25, April Grigsby, 41, and Ariel Acuff, 26.
