Bronaugh 3 12HENDERSON, Ky. (3/12/18) — An alleged drug dealer claiming that he was robbed of cash found himself behind bars Sunday morning.

Henderson Police Department reported responding to a call at Lawndale Apartments in reference to a robbery. Wanya L. Bronaugh told police he was getting out of the passenger side of his vehicle near his residence, when a black man got out of a car next to his, stuck a gun into his right side and demanded money from Bronaugh.
