CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Man arrested for drug trafficking, driving under the influence

Prescription drugs and a large amount of money were found on a London man who was stopped Thursday after a report of a possible drunken driver, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

When Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and Deputy Robbie Grimes responded about 9:30 p.m. to the complaint about a white Nissan Maxima on KY 770 being driven “all over the road,” they stopped the driver, Jeffery G. House, 50.

House had two prescription pill bottles he had filled that day. One bottle of 150 oxycodone pills had 26 pills left and the other pill bottle, which had contained 60 Alprazolam, had 29 pills remaining in it. House couldn’t explain why the pills were missing or why he carried so much money, Root said.

House was arrested and charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle under the influence. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Jack Riley assisted deputies at the scene.

Robbery report leads to four arrests

An incorrect report of a robbery in the parking lot of a London restaurant Thursday led to four people being arrested, according to London Police Chief Stewart Walker.

About 8 p.m., police arrived in the parking lot and determined the robbery hadn’t occurred. They did learn four people had returned from a Georgia pain clinic where they got prescriptions for 15- and 30-milligram oxycodone pills. Officers checked the prescription amounts against the remaining pills and determined several pills were missing.

Those arrested were:

*Kenneth Isaacs, 56, of Topmost, charged with first-degree trafficking in controlled substance

*Tiffany N. Perry, 24, of Prestonburg, charged with public intoxication and possession of drug paraphernalia

*James E. Subastian, 49, of Combs, charged with public intoxication

*Brandie L. Blankenship, 29, of Hazard, charged with being a fugitive.

All four subjects were lodged in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Sgt. Danny Robinson continues the investigation.

Assisting Robinson at the scene were Capt. K.R. Jones, Sgt. Randy Medlock and Officer Shannon Morgan.
