Boyd County deputies arrested a man after they said he sold crack cocaine to a member of the Drug Task Force twice, just weeks after being released from prison.
Leron Taylor, 34, of Ashland was charged with two counts of trafficking a controlled substance, Boyd County deputies said.
Taylor allegedly sold one gram of crack cocaine Wednesday to a member of the Drug Task Force and then another gram of the substance Thursday, according to the criminal complaint.
Deputies then executed a search warrant at Taylor's home where they found narcotics, money and drug paraphernalia, the complaint said. Taylor had just been released from jail a few weeks earlier, after being sentenced to five years for trafficking crack cocaine.
Taylor was taken to the Boyd County Jail.
