A LaFollette Man turned himself in to authorities on Oct. 24 after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

An undercover drug investigation by the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department led investigators to Phillip A. Young, 62, 251 Young Road, LaFollette.

Officers reportedly arranged several undercover drug buys from Young, both at his home and at the Lonas Young Memorial Park, according to the sheriff’s department.

The park is named after Young’s father.

A search warrant executed several months ago allegedly led to the recovery of narcotics and weapons, including handguns and a shotgun.

Young is charged with the sale of schedule II drugs, violation of the drug free school zone law, delivery of schedule II drugs in a school sane, two counts of schedule II controlled substances, two counts of delivery of schedule II controlled substances, possession of schedule II controlled substances with the intent to sell, possession of schedule II controlled substances with the intent to deliver, and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.

His bond was set at $25,000.
