SALYERSVILLE, Ky. — A Magoffin County man faces a long list of felony charges, after police reportedly found a large amount of drugs and three intoxicated teens in his house.

The Magoffin County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home on Far Middle Fork Road, over reports of an intoxicated juvenile at the home. When they arrived, 27-year-old Luther Keeton Jr. answered the door, but would not let them come inside.

They returned with a search warrant, and found two boys and a girl inside, all appearing to be under the influence of something. They also found marijuana, THC gummies, hallucinogenic mushrooms, meth and ADHD pills, along with five guns, more than $1,400 in cash, and numerous items believed to be used in drug trafficking.

Keeton was arrested and charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, trafficking in five different types of drugs, and several other charges.
