Drug trafficking charges filed after party in B.G.

BOWLING GREEN — Two men appeared in court yesterday on drug trafficking charges after being arrested at a Frazee Avenue residence.

Byron W. Walder, 20, of Cedar Hill, Texas, and Bruce C. Simpson, Jr., 20, of Detroit, are charged with trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony.

Both were released on personal recognizance bonds after appearing in Bowling Green Municipal Court. Preliminary hearings were scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 5.

Police were called to the residence about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a complaint about a loud party. Officers noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the home and obtained a search warrant, Chief Thomas Votava said.
