Two months ago, Morris Russell Chaney of Franklin County was among a group of five in the Lawrence County Flat Rock community who were arrested in a drug sting. At that time, the 45 year old Chaney was charged with attempting to commit a controlled substance crime.
Yesterday, Chaney was arrested in Franklin on charges of drug distribution. If the alleged drug dealer should make bail in Franklin County, he will be returned to Lawrence to await trial there. Chaney has a record of arrests in Franklin going back at least five years.
