Complaint leads to arrests at W’burg hotel Wednesday

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

The Hampton Inn in Williamsburg was the scene of three arrests Wednesday.

According to Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird, Shawnda Laree Lawson, 30, James Russell Faulkner, 29, and Sharon Bryant, 34, all of Williamsburg, were all jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

Bird explained the department received a complaint of an intoxicated man and woman in the lobby of the Williamsburg hotel.

Officer Brandon White and Captain Eddie Cain found the two suspects, who they said appeared under the influence — that was allegedly Lawson and Faulkner.

Bird said that during the investigation, they both allegedly admitted to being under the influence of methamphetamine.

The third arrest was Bryant, who officers located in a car parked outside the hotel — she, too, allegedly appeared to be under the influence.

She was reportedly waiting on Lawson and Faulkner.

Bird said Faulkner possessed a bag containing what was believed to be methamphetamine residue. Lawson reportedly possessed a bag containing what was believed to be methamphetamine, as well as Roxicet and Xanax pills — and $3,100 in cash.

Bryant allegedly possessed what is believed to be methamphetamine.

Bird said the investigation suggests Bryant allegedly delivered methamphetamine to the hotel, where Faulkner and Lawson reportedly bought and used it.

Lawson faces charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; a second charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second or subsequent offense; third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; and theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000. She remains jailed in the WCDC under a $25,000 cash bond with an ankle bracelet requirement.

Faulkner faces charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; a second charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense. JailTracker records indicate he also faces two charges of non payment of fines and a charge of failure to appear. He remained jailed in the WCDC under a $50,000 cash bond with an ankle bracelet requirement.

Bryant faces charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, and first-degree promoting contraband. She also remains jailed in the WCDC under a $50,000 cash bond with an ankle bracelet requirement.
