Four arrested in Frankfort hotel with large amounts of methamphetamine

This Christmas, four people were gifted a trip to jail, following a drug bust at a local hotel.

According to deputies in the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, the three men and one woman were found with a significant amount of methamphetamine. The men arrested were William Salmons, Davis Fallis, Joshua Croucher, and Ciji West.

On Monday evening, the deputies spotted a car in the parking lot of a Day’s Inn, located in Frankfort. Police suspected the vehicle was being used to transport drugs. The officers found Salmons in the car and proceeded to arrest him. The owner of the car would not give consent for a search, so officers called for a Frankfort Police K9 unit. The dog detected drugs in the car, giving officers probable cause to initiate a search of the vehicle.

The search yielded a wealth of drugs and drugs paraphernalia, including methamphetamine, heroin, needles, digital scales, and $800 in cash, according to investigators.

Salmons was arrested on an outstanding warrant. He was also charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; and first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense. Both charges are Class D felonies. Salmons had been previously charged with drug offenses and was serving out his probation. As part of his probation, he was to complete a long-term substance abuse program and refrain from alcohol and drug use.

Fallis was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense; possession of drug paraphernalia; and a first-degree promoting contraband. All of his charges were Class D felonies, accept the possession of drug paraphernalia, which is a Class A misdemeanor.

Croucher was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The men had rented a room in the hotel, and that is where officers found West. She had heroin and methamphetamine in her possession. West was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, second offense; first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

No details were released about whether bail had been set and all four were being held on Tuesday at the Franklin County Regional Jail.
