Five nabbed by Laurel Co. sheriff

Drug, gun possession among charges

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene/Staff Writer

A trip to a Pleasant View Road home about six miles west of London netted four arrests for the Laurel Sheriff’s Department Tuesday.

Later that night, a fifth arrest was made on KY 229.

About 2 p.m., the officers appeared at the home with active arrest warrants on two in the house, arrested a third, and a fourth who, while the officers were there, pulled his vehicle into the driveway, turned and left.

While the officers were investigating and speaking with Eldon Nelson, 58, the owner of the home, Tammy Lucille Henderson-Nelson, 48, one of the two on which a warrant had been issued was caught trying to climb out of the house in a rear window.

A warrant had also been issued on Cam Nelson, 65.

Eldon Nelson was also arrested and charged with possessing marijuana, second- and third-degree possession of a controlled substance and improper prescription drug container.

Tammy Henderson-Nelson was charged with giving a false name, trafficking in a controlled substance, and improper prescription drug container.

She was also found with cash and what was thought to be oxycodone pills.

Cam Nelson was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon. A .22-caliber rifle and a 9 mm pistol were found at the home.

A supply of marijuana, hydrocodone and clonazepam pills were also found at the home.

Those three were taken to the Laurel Detention Center.

When Deputy Sgt. Greg Poynter spotted the fourth vehicle turning in the driveway he apparently gave chase and stopped Roger Roark, 35, on KY 363 about four miles south of London.

The Topton Road resident was wanted on an arrest warrant charging him with fourth-degree assault.

The investigation was also carried out by Sheriff John Root, Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Detective Tommy Johnson, Sgt. Josh Gaylor and deputies William Harris and Greg Turner.

Later Tuesday night, about 9 p.m., Deputy Greg Turner arrested Danny Lynn Mason, 34, on KY 229 about eight miles south of London.

Mason was wanted on arrest warrants from both Laurel and Knox counties.

In Laurel he was charged with failure to appear in court. In Knox, he was wanted for not paying fines on charges of third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, improper prescription drug container and drug paraphernalia.

He was taken to the Laurel Detention Center.
