A Detroit man is facing charges after deputies said they found drugs hidden inside of a scented candle in Boyd County.
Julius V. Ready, 18, was charged Tuesday with trafficking heroin and trafficking cocaine. The Boyd County Sheriff's Department said it received a tip that the suspect would be bringing drugs inside a candle on a bus from Detroit, according to a news release from the department.
The Department's Drug Task Force located the suspect and asked to search his duffel bag in Ashland on Tuesday. Deputies said they found the candle and could see it was missing a wick. Deputies broke the candle apart and said they found bags with 13 grams of heroin and 3 grams of cocaine.
Ready was taken to the Boyd County Detention Center.
