Man arrested during neighborhood evacuation in court

The man police say is behind an explosive scare that shut off a central Kentucky neighborhood had his first court hearing in the case.

Joshua Drew Logan made his first court appearance today where he was arraigned on ten counts of Wanton Endangerment, and two counts of Cultivating Marijuana.
It was a charge of Failure To Pay Child Support that led a sheriff's deputy to Logan's home on Monday night. The deputy said he smelled marijuana, which led to a search of the house.

The sheriff's department says they found about one hundred marijuana plants as well as an explosive substance which led to an evacuation of nearby homes.

Emergency crews were on scene for more than twenty-four hours while they identified and disposed of that substance.

Neighbors were allowed to return to their home around 9:30 last night. Those neighbors say the Logans are good people and have been great to live by which makes what happened yesterday even harder to understand.

"I guess you just don't really know what goes on behind closed doors... You just see people outside their home and they seem so nice," said neighbor Eddie Pope.

Joshua Logan is being held in the Franklin County Regional Jail on a five-hundred-thousand dollar cash bond.

Logan lived in that home with his mother who's a retired school teacher. He is a former soldier who served a tour in the Middle East.
