By Matt Lasley -


A domestic violence call resulted in the arrest of a Caneyville man on a drug charge on Thursday, June 16.

At approximately 12:26 p.m. on Thursday, Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) Chief Deputy Corey Knochel responded to a residence on Tousey Road in Caneyville on a complaint of a man threatening people with a knife.

Upon arrival, Knochel was met in the yard by 48-year-old William O. Logsdon, of Caneyville, according to a GCSO news release.

“Logsdon was ordered to the ground and a subsequent search of his person revealed a suspected bag of crystal methamphetamine in his pocket,” Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins wrote in the release. “The substance was later field tested, which confirmed the substance was indeed methamphetamine.”

Logsdon was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, 1st Degree, 1st Offense (Methamphetamine), and lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on a $5,000 cash bond.

Logsdon was arraigned in court on June 16 and is due to appear in court again Thursday, June 23 for a preliminary hearing.
