TUTOR KEY, Ky. — Four people have been charged in a federal indictment alleging a meth distribution conspiracy in Johnson and Magoffin counties.
Charles Allen Chandler, 52, of Tutor Key; Ashley Johnson, 35, of Salyersville; Cory Johnson, 32, of Salyersville; Jayshawn Robinson, 29, of Pontiac, Mich., are all charged with conspiracy to distribute more than half a kilogram of meth. Chandler and Ashley Johnson are also charged with possession with intent to distribute, while Chandler is also charged with four counts of distribution.
The case grew out of an investigation by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, which culminated with a raid of Chandler’s home on Aug. 12. During the search, deputies seized about two pounds of meth and nearly $19,000 in cash.
All of the defendants face a potential sentence of between 10 years and life in prison if convicted.
