Five arrested in drug trafficking investigation

Five people were arrested Wednesday after an investigation into illegal drug trafficking at Laurel’s Trailer Park in London, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

More than six grams of crystal meth and money were seized. Also discovered was digital scales, pipes and empty small bags.

Those arrested and their charges were:

Phillip C. Conley, 24, of London, trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine)

Charles D. Morgan, 43, of London, trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and first-degree promoting contraband.

Andrew J. Floyd, 27, of London, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, resisting arrest, and trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Gary Evans, 54, of London, charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.

Keith A. Lloyd, 21, of London, charged on a bench warrant for failure to appear in Laurel District court on a traffic charge.

The contraband charge against Morgan stems from a small baggie of meth that was found in his shoe while he was being booked into jail. Root said Morgan told deputies he could not keep up with all the little baggies he made up in a day.

Those arrested were jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Those involved in the investigation and arrests were Root, Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Lt. Rodney Van Zant, Sgt. Josh Gaylor, detectives Jason Back, Brad Mitchell, Daryl Zanet, Charlie Loomis and Tommy Johnston, Deputy William Bo Harris and bailiffs Shane Rice and Brandon Broughton. Assisting from the London Police Department was Sgt. Doug Thomas and Officer Brian Lawson.

London man carries sawed-off shotgun into store

A London man was arrested Tuesday after he walked into a Laurel Countuy grocery store carrying a sawed-off shotgun that had been illegally altered, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Earnest D. Carr, 41, walked into the store located five miles west of London carrying the weapon on his shoulder.

While deputies Greg Turner, Steve Hoskins and Jeff Blunschi responded, they were told the man had hit himself in the head, climbed into a green Dodge pickup truck and was driving toward London.

The deputies saw the pickup and stopped it.

Deputies removed Carr from the pickup. Inside, they found the gun, which had been cut to a length of just under 14 inches, which is illegal. A tactical handle had been added to the weapon, which had no serial numbers on it.

Carr was arrested and charged with defacing a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

London man arrested for making false 911 call

A London man was arrested for making a false 911 call during which he told dispatchers he had strangled his girlfriend and that she wasn’t breathing, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

After the call, which was made before 7 p.m., Root, several deputies and Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County responded to the address the caller reported, only to discover the call for help was untrue.

Deputy Greg Turner and Chief  Deputy  Eddy Sizemore investigated and, on Tuesday afternoon, they contacted Michael E. Jones, 58, who lives west of London. Jones had had a disagreement with a family member at the address reported during the 911 call, so he decided to make the emergency call.

Jones was arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Deputy William Bo Harris assisted on the investigation.

Police: Gray residents found at Golden Corral with pills and a child

Two Gray residents were arrested Sunday after they went to London’s Golden Corral Restaurant apparently under the influence and with a young child, according to London Police Chief Stewart Walker.

Police were called before 4 p.m. and, when they arrived, they found Ernest McIntyre, 49, seated at a table. Stewart said McIntyre was going in and out of consciousness.

Christine McIntyre, 25, was in the restroom with the child when police arrived. When she returned, police noticed her speech was slurred, she was unsteady on her feet and she had a white powder residue around her nose.

Ernest McIntyre was carring 29 30-milligram oxycodone pills, two 1-milligram Xanax and five cut straws with white powder inside them.

Christine McIntyre was carrying five syringes and two clear straws, one of which contained white powder residue.

Ernest McIntyre was arrested and charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, public intoxication, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Christine McIntyre was arrested and charged with public intoxication, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both were jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Sgt. Danny Robinson continues the investigation and more charges are pending. 

London man arrested for outstanding warrants

A London man was arrested Saturday for outstanding warrants, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Joseph A. Richards, 55, had warrants for leaving the scene of an accident, operating on a suspended operaters license and failure to maintain required insurance.

He was arrested by Deputy  Josh Scott, who was responding about 1 a.m. to a complaint about domestic violence at a home located six miles south of London.
