(Breckinridge County, Ky.) -- On Wednesday October 13, 2010 units from Kentucky State Police West Drug Enforcement and Kentucky State Police Drug Task Force received an anonymous tip that two guards were selling drugs and contraband tobacco to the inmates at the Breckinridge County Detention Center. Investigators were able to purchase drugs from the two guards using an anonymous source. After further investigation, search and arrest warrants were obtained for William David Reed and Shannon Joe Wade and their residence. A search of the residence, shared by Reed and Wade, yielded 25 dose units of Hydrocodone and 28 grams of Marijuana, Cigarettes and Smokeless Tobacco. Reed and Wade were arrested and lodged in the Grayson County Jail. KSP West Drug Enforcement was assisted by Kentucky State Police Post 4, Breckinridge County Sheriff's Office, and Breckinridge County Detention Center. This matter is still under investigation by Det. Ron Eckart.
