Police have charged a Jackhorn man with first-degree possession of a controlled substance for allegedly having four grams of methamphetamine and two syringes loaded with an unknown drug.

Deputy Sheriff Seth Whitaker, Deputy Alexis Stambaugh, and Neon Police Chief Mike Dingus made the discovery July 7 while serving arrest warrants on Daniel Bentley, 35, of 2942 KY 317.

Whitaker wrote in the citation that while serving the warrant, he noticed a plastic bag containing a crystalized substance believed to be methamphetamine, and then located the two needles, some glass pipe pieces with residue inside, and a spoon with burn marks.

Whitaker said he read Bentley the Miranda warning outlining his rights and asked what was in the needles. According to the citation, Bentley said either heroin or methamphetamine.

Bentley was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
