BEDFORD – Two people were arrested on Wednesday, Nov. 25, after a Bedford Police officer served a search warrant at a home on 6th Street.
The investigation began after a Bedford Police officer ran the license plate on a vehicle that was parked on the north side of 6th Street near Q Street.
The officer learned the registered owner of the vehicle 35-year-old Cory Turner was wanted on four active warrants for dealing drugs.
While at the house, the officer noticed Turner return to his car to retrieve a backpack, and go back inside the home.
Officers continued surveillance on the residence while attempting to secure a search warrant for the home in the 1600 block of 6th Street.
At approximately 4:55 p.m. officers executed that search warrant. Officers knocked on the door and then heard individuals running inside so they breached the front door.
Officers found 27-year-old Kyah Grubb in the dining room.
Officers then ordered Turner and two other men out of a rear bedroom.
Turner then gave officers a fake name. After realizing the officers knew who he was Turner refused to speak to them.
Inside the home, officers found multiple syringes containing meth, multiple large baggies, a large amount of cash, a Smith and Wesson handgun, a plastic bag containing multiple unidentified pills, two and digital scales. They also found a plastic baggy of marijuana and a baggie containing a powder substance that tested positive for heroin/fentanyl. All these items were found on a coffee table and couch inside the home. In the rear of the residence, officers located two small plastic bags containing meth behind the dryer. Police seized a total of 55.79 grams of meth in the home.
In Turner’s vehicle, police found another baggie containing 108.93 grams of crystal meth, two syringes, and more cash.
Cash located inside Turner’s vehicle and on the couch of the residence totaled $997.
Turner was arrested on the outstanding warrants and new charges of dealing and possession of meth, dealing and possession of a narcotic drug, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, theft, unlawful possession of a syringe, and possession of marijuana.
Grubb is facing a charge of visiting a common nuisance.
