A Bowling Green man was arrested Wednesday on drug charges following efforts by multiple agencies, including the Warren County Drug Task Force, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Kentucky State Police K-9 and Homeland Security Investigations.
A news release issued Thursday by the drug task force said Jacob Ross Embry, 19, is charged with trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, trafficking in marijuana (eight ounces to five pounds), first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (LSD) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Embry was arrested at his Creason Street home after investigation and surveillance by task force detectives and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service of alleged marijuana and LSD trafficking activities.
A search of the home resulted in the seizure of four pounds of marijuana, 20 hits of LSD, psilocybin mushrooms and $1,973 in cash. In addition to the four pounds of marijuana seized at the home, another four pounds related to the investigation was seized. The street value of the high-grade marijuana is $38,000, according to the release.
Embry is in Warren County Regional Jail.
The investigation will be presented to a Warren County grand jury at a later date, according to the release.
