On Thursday at approximately 6:45, Deputies from the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office arrived at a residence on Beaver Dam Road to serve a warrant on 33-year-old Ashley R. Simpson.
According to police, Simpson was wanted on two failure to appear warrants related to drug trafficking charges, fleeing or evading police and hindering apprehension. While Deputies were at the residence, the property owner, 62-year-old Darrell Crume, of Caneyville, was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia.
The GC Sheriff’s Office contacted the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force and a search
warrant for the property was later obtained, police said. When the warrant was served at Crume’s residence, authorities discovered suspected methamphetamine, ingredients used in the manufacturing of meth, an arsenal of handguns and long guns, numerous items of drug paraphernalia, and a significant amount of cash.
Crume was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (meth, greater than two grams), and possession of a controlled substance (meth), with multiple other felony charges pending.
Simpson was located at the scene and arrested on the aforementioned warrants.
Both suspects were lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center, where Simpson is being held on multiple bonds totaling $10,500. Crume was released on a $2,500 bond, which was set by Pretrial Services. According to the GC Sheriff’s Office, Crume was back on the streets less than nine hours after he was lodged in the GCDC.
The GC Sheriff’s Office was assisted in this investigation by the Leitchfield Police Department and the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force.
