Xavier Martin

CATLETTSBURG An Ashland man was indicted by the Boyd County Grand Jury on Tuesday on multiple drug charges and felony endangerment charges.

Xavier L. Martin, 33, was indicted on the charges of buying or possessing drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor, first-degree possession of methamphetamine, a class D felony, possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor, second-degree possession of a controlled substance (drug unspecified), a class A misdemeanor and two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, a class D felony, according to court records.

The indictment stems from Martin’s arrest on Oct. 9 by the Ashland Police Department when police were called to a 31st Street residence to assist with Child Protective Services.

“Martin had a glass pipe with white residue next to him on the bed when officers walked in the residence with CPS to speak with him,” said police reports.

Officers asked Martin if he had any other illegal items in his possession and he pulled out a black cloth bag that contained multiple small red baggies with a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana and a red small baggy with three orange pills (Suboxone), according to police reports.

Martin then pulled out a blue small baggy with a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine, according to police reports.

Martin was arrested and lodged at the Boyd County Detention Center and is being held on a $20,000 full cash bond.
