AUGUSTA — Two people were arrested in connection with a drug bust over the weekend in Bracken County.

Sheriff Howard Neimeier said around 11:30 p.m., on Friday, a search warrant was executed on a home in Augusta as a part of an ongoing investigation.

Upon arrival, officers allegedly discovered 30.1 grams of methamphetamine and five weapons inside the home.

Officers arrested 39-year-old Timothy Woodruff at the home. He was charged with buying/possession of drug paraphernalia, trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, failure to appear, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance – methamphetamine.

He was lodged in the Mason County Detention Center, where he remains.

Neimeier said Justin Holleran, 33, of Brooksville, was later arrested in connection with the search.

“We arrested (Holleran) during a traffic stop,” Neimeier said.

Holleran was charged with possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine and failure to wear a seat belt. He was lodged in the Mason County Detention Center and released.

Neimeier said there is not much he can release regarding the search warrant because the case remains under investigation.

“We executed a search warrant on a home as a part of an ongoing investigation,” Neimeier said. “We can’t give out any further information at this time.”

The Augusta Police Department, Maysville Police Department and Mason County Sheriff’s Offices were also on scene.
