Quisenberry Raymer Meth BustHARTFORD, Ky. (3/28/16) — Two people from Olaton have been arrested on drug charges after an investigation by the Ohio County Sheriff's Office.

In February of 2016, the Ohio County Sheriff's Office's Narcotics Unit received information about the alleged sale of large quantities of methamphetamine from a home located on Kentucky 878 in Olaton. Based upon a preliminary investigation, detectives focused their attention on two people residing in the 300 block of Kentucky 878. Eventually, detectives were able to identify the two as possible suspects.

As the investigation continued, detectives learned the two were selling and/or consuming large quantities of methamphetamine at their home. One of the residents, Whitney Raymer, 27, allegedly sold an agent of the OCSO an "eight-ball" of crystal methamphetamine on a previous occasion.

Deputies were assisted by Kentucky State Police troopers on Wednesday night, March 23, in the execution of the search warrant. Officers seized rifles, shotguns, methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription pills, and drug paraphernalia. In addition, one of the residents was found to be hunting wild game out of season. He was identified as Brian Quisenberry, 29.

OCSO detectives were assisted by a member of the Kentucky Department of Fish & Game. They are conducting their own separate investigation, and Quisenberry could be facing additional charges stemming from this incident.

Quisenberry and Raymer were each charged with one count of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), one count of possession of marijuana, one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Raymer also received an additional count of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine) for the sale of methamphetamine on Monday, March 14.

Both Quisenberry and Raymer were taken into custody without incident, and lodged in the Ohio County Detention Center.
