By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - The McCracken County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's assistance in locating a man in connection with trespassing and poaching charges.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Office, over the past several years law enforcement have received complaints regarding the trespassing and poaching in an area of Coleman Cut Road in southern McCracken County.

On Wednesday detectives obtained and executed a search warrant at a home on Coleman Cut Road, with the assistance of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The search warrant was executed at approximately 9 PM. Shortly after entering the home deputies reportedly discovered a live deer standing on a bed inside the home. Deputies have reason to believe the deer had been living inside of the home for awhile.

After a search of the property, deputies reportedly found firearms, ammunition, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, frozen animal carcasses, and a deer that had recently been killed.

A resident of the home, 40-year-old Victor "Chipper" Jang II, is a convicted felon, and not allowed to own firearms. Jang wasn't present at the time of the search, and an arrest warrant was issued.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and the McCracken County Sheriff's Office are continuing the investigation.

Anyone with information on Jang is asked to contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Office at 270-444-4719, 270-443-8355, or through the McCracken County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.
