DANVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Facebook post by a neighboring police department led to the arrest of two men on drug and identity theft charges, according to the Boyle County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies say the Harrodsburg Police Department went on Facebook asking for information on a dark-colored Ford F150 pickup truck.
Boyle County K-9 Deputy Casey McCoy says he spotted the pickup heading south on Hustonville Road early Tuesday evening.
Deputy McCoy says he pulled the truck over in the Danville Manor parking lot and discovered both men inside the pickup had multiple active warrants out against them.
The driver was identified as Jordan Rousey, of Hustonville, along with passenger Michael Daniel, of Kings Mountain.
Investigators say Deputy K-9 ‘Niki’ found approximately 8-grams of crystal methamphetamine, marijuana, pills, cash and other paraphernalia inside the pickup.

Both men were arrested on multiple charges, according to investigators.
Harrodsburg Police were contacted and the pickup truck was impounded, according to the Boyle County Sheriff’s Office.
