Warren County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Bowling Green man accused of exposing his elderly mother to fugitives and narcotic usage.
Allen Grant Henderson, 53, was charged Tuesday with knowingly abusing or neglecting an adult and first-degree possession of a controlled substance first offense. He is being held in the Warren County Regional Jail.
A deputy went to 1801 Morgantown Road, Lot 231 to attempt to locate a person who ran from law enforcement on a prior date. When the deputy arrived a woman stepped outside and said he couldn’t come in, according to Henderson’s arrest citation.
The homeowner, Gale Henderson, who is Allen Henderson’s mother allowed the deputy to come inside where he found three people who were wanted on outstanding warrants, according to the citation. One person was unresponsive and taken to a local hospital to be treated for a possible drug overdose.
Henderson’s sister, who is not named in the citation, showed up and told a deputy that she constantly runs drug users off of the property and her brother allows fugitives and drug addicts to stay there, according to his arrest citation.
He “places his elderly mother in a position where she is being exposed to narcotic usage and is unable to help herself or leave,” the citation reads.
The woman, who a deputy said wouldn’t let law enforcement inside the house at first, Amy Lynne Williams, 39, is charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension and first-degree possession of a controlled substance first offense (methamphetamine), according to her citation.
Williams told a deputy two people who were wanted on outstanding warrants were inside the home, according to her citation.
After Gale Henderson allowed law enforcement inside her home, a deputy found a suspected methamphetamine pipe in a bedroom where Williams had been staying, according to her citation.
Williams is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. Aug. 15. Allen Henderson is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. Friday.
