Car Running for Hours in N. Keeneland Parking Lot Leads to Firearm, Trafficking Arrest


A vehicle running with its lights on unmoved for several hours led Richmond Police to investigate, and take a suspect into custody on multiple drug charges as well as receiving stolen property of a firearm.

According to the citation, police responded to North Keeneland Drive to find Draven Greene asleep in the driver’s seat. After attempts, Greene was eventually wakened, and the smell of marijuana was allegedly evident as well as a handgun in plain view.

As the smell of marijuana was evident, a search was conducted according to police, and the 9mm handgun came back as stolen. The citation continues that marijuana and suspected methamphetamine weighing over one pound was also located inside the vehicle.

Upon a continued search, baggies consistent with trafficking were also located inside the vehicle. Greene told officers that he did indeed purchase the suspected methamphetamine for $1,500, and travelled to bring it to Madison County. Greene then allegedly willingly told police that the had traveled from Harlan with the drugs, which he traded for various items.

After a background check, it appeared that Greene had multiple felony charges filed against him in the past. His cell phone was seized as evidence for trafficking and the car was towed from the lot.

Greene was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, receiving stolen property of a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
