Two people were arrested Monday night when officers were called to their Avondale Street home for a domestic dispute. Officers arrived to find Kenneth R. Taylor Jr., 35, standing in the doorway with blood coming from both hands and a woman walking through the kitchen. When asked what happened, Taylor reportedly told officers he had paid for everything and he could destroy it. They entered the house and found blood on every wall and shattered glass all through the living and dining areas, according to reports. Laura Barker was not found inside or outside the home but was then located, but she told officers nothing had happened and refused to tell them anything. She also refused medical treatment. Both were charged with domestic violence, and Taylor was transported to the hospital, where he received stitches.
Municipal Court dockets Tuesday included a Sept. 19 report stating that city police, the county drug task force and its special response team executed a search warrant at 926 McKinnon Ave., where David P. Peachey, 30, was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. According to the report, the search warrant was based on numerous controlled buys and traffic stops involving narcotics from the residence. Peachey was the only person found in the residence at the time. Confiscated during the search were a baggie containing a light green powder, one tear-off bag with residue, six crack pipes, a bagging containing six brown pills and two pink pills, nine cell phones, a monitor and camera and money from Peachey's wallet.
