Search of home allegedly locates gun and drugs

An early morning search warrant executed at an apartment in Lexington Park on Saturday allegedly revealed cocaine, heroin and a revolver, and led to the arrest of a man who had an outstanding warrant from a search of his previous residence.

Charging papers say officers executed a search warrant at the Orchid Lane apartment following his charging based on another warrant executed last month at Henry Clay Hinson’s former residence on Hermanville Road, where firearms and drugs were also recovered, according to charging papers.

On Saturday, police found Hinson, 33, at the Orchid Lane residence, allegedly along with quantities of heroin and cocaine and a revolver, according to charging papers, which also say Hinson is currently on probation following his release from prison.

Hinson is currently being held without bond at the county detention center on several felony gun and drug charges.
