State police raid Little Colley home

Kentucky State Police have charged an Isom man with multiple drug trafficking charges after a raid on Saturday.

Troopers served a search warrant on the property of Mark Wayne Adams, 49, of Little Colley, about 1:30 p.m. Saturday after receiving information that he was selling drugs. According to the citation, police found 55 30mg oxycodone pills inside the back of a commode in the bathroom of an outbuilding. The citation says police also found a plastic container with two clear plastic bags with suspected marijuana, rolling papers and a weighing scale on the counter where Adams was sitting, and a “considerable amount” of money thrown under the counter. The citation also says that on searching the trailer where Adams lives, troopers found a zip-lock bag in the refrigerator containing marijuana.

Trooper Leo Slone wrote in the citation that after reading Adams his Miranda rights, Adams refused to make any statements and complained of severe chest pain. An ambulance transported him to Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital emergency room. Adams was cited and released because of being admitted to the hospital.

Adams is charged with four counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; trafficking in eight ounces to five pounds of marijuana; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

His arraignment is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22.
