CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Paint Lick pair arrested for drug trafficking

A man and woman from Paint Lick were arrested Monday following an investigation into drug trafficking activities, according to Corbin Police Chief David Campbell.

Jon Gray, 45, and Nicole White, 31, were investigated by an unnamed informant as well as Corbin Police, who were able to purchase drugs from them in Knox and Whitley counties within 1,000 feet of a Corbin school, Campbell said.

At the time of the bust, White reportedly had her two children inside of a vehicle. Knox County social services were contacted and the children were placed with a family member, according to Campbell.

Corbin Police seized approximately two ounces of marijuana and $800 in cash, along with the 1999 Chevrolet van the couple was using to sell drugs.

Gray and White were arrested by officers Mike Bisschop and Kyle Gray and charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, trafficking in marijuana less than eight ounces, first-degree wanton endangerment, and trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Man arrested for public intoxication

A London man was arrested Monday night for public intoxication, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

James E. Johnson, 42, was found wandering along Helvetia Road in sub-zero temperatures, and he was apparently under the influence, Root said. Upon arrest, Johnson reportedly became combative and struggled with deputies.

Johnson was arrested by Root, deputies Larry Parrott and Daniel Grigsby, and Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and charged with alcohol intoxication, second-degree disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested for DUI in icy weather

A London man was arrested Monday for driving under the influence, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Alan Z. Jones, 19, was arrested by Deputy Mikey Ashurst when he was observed weaving badly on snow and ice covered roads in a white Nissan Sentra. Ashurst conducted a traffic stop, and Root said that Ashurst could smell alcohol on Jones.  Ashurst reportedly conducted a roadside investigation and determined that Jones was under the influence.

Jones reportedly told Ashurst that he was driving to see if the roads were slick.

Jones was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol (under the age of 21), possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in motor vehicle, no seat belt in use, careless driving, and no insurance. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
