Authorities execute two search warrants yesterday, resulting in 3 arrests.
Russell County Sheriff Derek Polston reports the first warrant was executed at 144 Luda Street in Russell Springs early Wednesday morning. Numerous items reported stolen in Russell County were recovered.

Arrested were Roger Dean Weston and Dana Kinnett, both of Jamestown, and Justin Kilpatrick of Columbia. They were charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine-1st degree, and Receiving Stolen Property over $500. Weston & Kinnett were also charged with Tampering with Physical Evidence.
The investigation is on-going and further arrests may be forthcoming. The case will be presented to the Russell County Grand Jury.
