Stolen Guns and Drug Arrest in Prenter
        Deputies with the Boone County Sheriff's Office spent the better part of Saturday searching two homes in Sandlick, along Prenter Road in Seth.  Deputies executed a search warrant at the residence of Raymond Keeney, 42 years old, Saturday afternoon.  The search was focused on stolen property and methamphetamine.
        Deputies were able to recover a small amount of marijuana and methamphetamine at the Keeney residence during the search.  However, during the search of Keeney's mother's residence next door, it was a different story.  Stolen property, guns, drugs and cash were recovered at that location, leading to the arrest of Mr. Keeney.
        Several firearms and old coins which were the subject of the investigation were located.  In addition to those items, other property such as guns, tools, coins and stamps were also seized and believed to be stolen, as well as prescription pills, methamphetamine, cash and drug packaging materials.  
        Sheriff Randall White says, "Mr. Keeney appears to be one of the problems in our community, he is selling drugs and trading them for stolen items.  This is not the first time we have searched his home, and if he doesn't stop, it will not be the last.  I would like to commend the efforts of our men and women who took part in this investigation.  Sgt Browning is the lead case agent and was assisted by Lt. Arthur, Cpl. McCarty, Deputies Pauley, Keadle, Dingess and Ziegler.  It was a long day for all involved and I appreciate their dedication".
        Keeney was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver as well as Transferring and Receiving Stolen Property.  Both charges are felonies and are punishable with the possibility of 1-5 and 1-10 years in prison respectively.
