JACKSON, Ky. — A Breathitt County man indicted in Perry County on charges of drug trafficking and possession now finds himself facing those same charges in Breathitt County, after police went to his home to serve the Perry County warrant.

As a state trooper went to the home of Woodrow Gross, 55, of Jackson, he reported that Gross saw him coming, pulled something from his pocket, threw it into the trunk of his car and attempted to close the lid of the trunk. The officer got to the car just in time to prevent the trunk from closing, then spotted 10 grams of meth in three plastic bags, along with marijuana and various pills.

Gross was placed under arrest and the trooper discovered he had nearly $4,000 in cash on him. He now faces meth trafficking and drug possession charges in Breathitt County, along with the original Perry County charges.
