Bond set for three arrested Friday by ATF

By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

Bond was set and pre-trial hearings scheduled Monday in the cases of three arrested on state drug charges in an early morning roundup last Friday.

April Chadwell, 29, of Corbin, was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance Friday morning when federal Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives agents arrested seven on various charges.

In Laurel District Court Monday, Chadwell was placed under a $25,000 cash bond, and a pre-trial hearing was set for 11 a.m. Dec. 30.

Goldie Eaton, 41, was charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and a $10,000 cash bond was set. She has a pre-trial hearing also set for 11 a.m. Dec. 30.

Troy Rice, 40, was charged with first-degree trafficking, and bond was set at $25,000 cash. A hearing was set for the same date and time as Eaton and Chadwell.

According to the ATF, agents executed two federal arrest warrants for Rex Vaughn, 39, and Michael Eaton, 33, both of North Corbin.

Vaughn, Chadwell’s boyfriend, was charged with two counts of distributing a controlled substance for the alleged sale of hydrocodone and oxycodone pills. The charges came after a confidential informant working for the Kentucky State Police in September allegedly purchased hydrocodone tablets from Vaughn at Vaughn’s home on Clay Avenue.

The informant reportedly told the KSP that he had seen a small revolver in Vaughn’s bedroom during the transaction.

Michael Eaton, Goldie Eaton’s husband, was charged after allegedly offering to sell a .38-caliber handgun to a confidential informant who had been cooperating with the KSP on controlled substance purchases.

On Nov. 18, while the transaction was being recorded, Eaton allegedly sold the informant the gun from his home on Appalousa Trail in North Corbin.

Eaton was arrested Friday on federal charges for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon and on a second charge for possessing a firearm as a person who has been convicted of a domestic violence misdemeanor.
