Police raided a house Monday in La Grange and made two arrests on drug charges. 


The raid follows a joint investigation by La Grange Police, Oldham County Police, the Oldham County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. 

Information investigators obtained about narcotics trafficking kept leading to a house on Monroe Street, said La Grange Police Chief Kevin Collett.

Police found two people in the house, but did not locate the a third resident, Ronnell Trice. 

Police arrested Crystal L. Bray and Damone O. Jones, both of La Grange.

Jones, 28, is charged with possession of crack-cocaine and Bray, 26, is charged with narcotics trafficking.

Police are still searching for Trice, 39, an African-American male with black hair and brown eyes. Trice stands 5’ 9” and weighs about 200 pounds. 

Anyone with information about Trice is asked to call (502) 222-0111. 

The raid occurred just two doors down from the house where police found 16-year-old Summer Leigh Williams dead on Sunday morning. 

Collett said police have no reason to believe the teenager’s death and the close proximity of the alleged drug trafficking are related.
