Julius V. Ready - Arrested on drug charges in Boyd County, KY
A Detroit man was arrested in Boyd County, KY on drug trafficking charges after authorities say he tried to bring drugs into the area.
The Boyd County Sheriff's Office drug task force waited at the Ashland Greyhound Bus station for Julius V. Ready who was bringing heroin and cocaine to the area in a scented candle. When he arrived, deputies searched his duffel bag and found a candle with no wick. They also observed a crack in the candle wax.
Ready claimed the candle was a housewarming gift he was taking to a friend. Deputies say the glass container holding the candle had been broken to get the wax out. Once the wax was pulled apart, investigators found a sock inside it. The sock had 13 grams of heroin and 3 grams of cocaine inside.
Ready was booked into the Boyd County Detention Center. The investigation is continuing.
