MOUNT VERNON, Ky. (AP) - A 68-year-old man has been arrested in a drug bust that authorities say was prompted by a death investigation in Rockcastle County.

Multiple media outlets report that Kentucky State Police are investigating the Monday discovery of an unidentified body inside a Mount Vernon motel. The coroner says the person appeared to have died from natural causes.

Police say the investigation led authorities to a Mount Vernon home where they arrested Logan R. Towery after finding 14 firearms, more than $13,000 in cash and hundreds of suspected oxycodone pills and Xanax pills inside the house. Towery has been charged with trafficking a controlled substance within 1,000 yards of a school.

Authorities haven’t said how they believe Towery was connected to the dead body. It’s unclear if Towery has an attorney.
