 A Bardstown man and woman have been arrested following a drug bust on Allison Avenue Tuesday.


According to court documents, the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at 715 Allison Ave. and found 11 indoor marijuana plants and two outdoor plants.

“They were good-sized plants,” said task force Det. Clinton Turner, who was involved in the bust.

Turner said pre-weighed bags of marijuana, digital scales, rolling papers and a glass marijuana pipe were also found inside the residence.

Michael Wayne Rhodes, 54, and Katherine Morrison Bruner, 41, were arrested. Rhodes was charged with cultivating marijuana (five plants or more), and both Rhodes and Bruner were charged with trafficking in marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Turner said the Task Force becomes involved at various stages of drug-related crime in the county depending on the information they are provided.

“We don’t just try to get the buys,” Turner said. “We like going up the chain and getting the source.”

Based on the items found inside the local residence, Turner said it appeared the home was a source of marijuana being sold on the streets of Bardstown and Nelson County.

Turner said those with information or tips regarding drug-related crime in the area are invited to contact the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force at (270) 769-0694. Tips can remain anonymous.
