On September 3, 2019, the Circleville Probation Department received narcotics information pertaining to an individual on Intensive Supervision Probation with their department. At approximately 3:00PM, ISP Officers Lacey Stevens, Conner Smith, and Municipal Court Officer Jessica Davis conducted a compliance check on probationer Kenneth Ray at his approved residence of 23401 Bolender Pontious Rd pursuant to the information received.
Officers searched the residence after permission was granted by Mr. Rays girlfriend and he was subsequently located hiding in a crawl space under the home. Mr. Ray was questioned about his compliance with his probation terms and admitted to violating those terms by consuming illegal narcotics. A secondary search of his bedroom was conducted at which time officers located a metal box containing approximately 16.25 grams of Black Tar Heroin, 11 Xanax pills, 14 Gabapentin pills, 8 Adderall pills, 1 Suboxone pill, $300 cash, 2 counterfeit $100 bills, and 39 syringes.
