Taylor County Man Faces Drug and Firearm Charges

 

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 the Columbia Area Drug Task Force executed a state search warrant at 1629 East Broadway Lot 6 in Campbellsville, KY as a result of an 8-month long investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and prescription narcotics in and around Taylor County.  In addition to evidence of drug trafficking, law enforcement seized 5 handguns from the residence, one of which had recently been reported stolen.

 

Dennis James Carrier, 42, of Taylor County was subsequently arrested on state charges and is currently being held on Federal Indictment for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Fentanyl, Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person, Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Offense, and Distribution of Methamphetamine.

 

The Columbia Area Drug Task Force includes detectives from the Kentucky State Police Drug Enforcement Special Investigation Branch, the Campbellsville Police Department and the Columbia Police Department.  The task force was assisted by members of the Kentucky State Police Post 15, the Taylor County Sheriff’s Department, the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
