BULLITT COUNTY, KY. (WDRB-TV) -- A Bullitt County constable who was arrested on drug charges over the weekend is now out of jail. Clifton Hudson was arrested on Friday, but he posted a $5,000 bond and was released from jail the next day.
But he was not at his home on Meadowview Drive on Monday afternoon.
"I've heard complaints myself...just from a lot of visitors," says a concerned neighbor.
This neighbor doesn't want to be identified but she does want some answers.
She says, "I'm concerned; I don't like it in my neighborhood."
"We've received phone calls in the past from people saying that they believe this person was dealing pills," says Lt. Mike Murdoch, with the Bullitt County Sheriff's office.
Murdoch says those phone calls led to a lengthy undercover investigation. "And finally on Friday night we were able to get a buy of 10 Percocet pills."
Murdoch says they also found a ledger inside the home.
"They told me that the ledger did explain that he was owed money from certain people for prescription pain pills...so it was a ledger that detailed what he was doing."
Hudson was elected in 2010 and took office in January of the following year. "He does have policing powers through the Kentucky state law...he's allowed to have a gun...blue lights in his vehicle."
And police say he used his police powers. "He goes out and he'll patrol the area over there and numerous times we've heard him call on the radio over there either have a unit come by for something or where he has responded to a call."
Meanwhile, according to a recently released book that takes a comprehensive look at the office of constable in the state, Hudson is just the latest in a growing number of Kentucky constables in trouble with the law.
Murdoch says, "There's a lack of training there and there needs to be...either more training...needs to be something done...exactly the answers I don't know but definitely more training if there are going to continue to be constables."
In addition to drug charges, Hudson could also be charged with official misconduct.
