BLAINE, Ky. — Deputies looking for a Lawrence County fugitive didn’t find him when they went to search a Blaine residence, but they didn’t come away empty-handed.

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office went to the home searching for 53-year-old David Michael Ferguson, who is wanted for meth trafficking and felon in possession of a firearm. They didn’t find Ferguson, but they did find more than 40 grams of meth along with what they described as thousands of dollars’ worth of stolen items.

The sheriff’s office is now working to get the stolen items back to their rightful owners.

In the meantime, they ask anyone who has information on Ferguson’s whereabouts to give them a call.
