Two Brownsville residents face drug trafficking charges after a warrant service attempt last night on KY HWY 70 that resulted in a woman being tased, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
In a press release, the Sheriff's Office said that around 10:30PM on Thursday, March 11th, deputies arrived at the 2700 block of HWY 70 for a warrant service for Toni Brown (40). According to the release, officers detected the strong odor of marijuana from the garage and saw drug paraphernalia and residue while seeing Brown and another individual, identified as Jason Stanka (35), also of Brownsville, inside.
The Sheriff's Office said that Jason Stanka attempted to exit the garage and failed to comply with law enforcement’s demands to stop and he had to be physically restrained for officers to place him in handcuffs.
