The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said a popular YouTube personality was arrested after investigators determined he received “butane honey oil” through the mail.

Deputies said Franklin County authorities and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms executed a search warrant at Myers’ home on Royston Road in Carnesville on August 7.  Numerous weapons, drug paraphernalia, and the butane honey oil was seized during the search.

Myers was charged with possession of a schedule one substance with the intent to distribute,a  felony, and possession of drug related objects, a misdemeanor, deputies said.
