Mounted heads lead to multiple charges

Posted: Updated:

PULASKI, KY (WAVE) - A head count landed a man behind bars with over 72 charges.

Police in Pulaski County raided a home looking for illegal drugs and discovered dozens of mounted deer heads, along with stuffed turkeys and other wild animals.

Jerry Beasley was arraigned Wednesday on charges for illegal drugs in addition to 72 counts of illegally hunting deer and turkey.

Beasley said police have it all wrong and that many of the animals do not have confirmation numbers from a legal hunt because they belonged to his late father.

Most of the mounted animals were seized. The court will decide if Beasley will get the mounted heads back.

Beasley is due back in court in April.
