Dog on the Loose Leads to Drug Charges
Nicholas A. Rettig, 30, of the 11500 block of Myrrh Lane, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor manufacture/delivery of marijuana and possession of drug equipment after an incident at his home. Rettig also was cited for a dog running at large.
Neighbors called police around 6:30 p.m. to complain about a loose dog in the area, said Frankfort Police Cmdr. Kevin Keegan. As the responding officer chased after the dog, he noticed the back screen door of Rettig's house had been torn open and had a police dispatcher try to contact someone inside the residence, Keegan said. When that proved unsuccessful, the officer took a closer look and saw debris scattered on the floor, Keegan said. A check on the vehicle in the driveway found that it wasn't registered to that address, and neighbors said they thought the residents had left earlier in the day, Keegan added.
Suspecting a break-in, the officer announced himself at the door and began a room-by-room search when there was no answer, Keegan said. Inside, the officer found glass pipes, bags filled with green, leafy material and plastic tubes that contained a white substance out in the open, Keegan said, adding the pipes and tubes were similar to those used to take drugs. The material in the bags and the substance on the pipes were tested later and found to be marijuana and cocaine, respectively, Keegan said.
At that time, Rettig and a woman who lived there arrived home. The woman said the dog belong to Rettig and her, and that it must have broken through the screen door while they were gone, Keegan said. When the officer told Rettig what he found in the house, Retting admitted it was his and was taken into custody, Keegan added.Rettig was released on bond, and his court date is June 14.
