Caneyville man convicted on drug charges in Grayson Co. arrested in Elizabethtown on meth charge

A Caneyville man convicted in Grayson County on multiple drug charges has been arrested in Hardin County.

Timothy Perry Polston, 35, was arrested by the Elizabethtown Police Department late Tuesday night (or possibly early Wednesday morning) and charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center at 12:57 a.m. Wednesday, and is being held on a $5,000 cash bond.

In June 2018, Polston was indicted by a Grayson County Grand Jury on two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine, Clonazepam), two counts of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine, opiates) and possession of drug paraphernalia. His address at that time was listed as Falls of Rough.

According to the Kentucky Department of Corrections (KDC), Polston was convicted in Grayson County for third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (drug unspecified), first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The date of Polston’s convictions is unclear. The KDC says his probation supervision began in October 2019. He is on probation until October 2022.
