Times-Tribune Staff Report
Three Laurel County residents remain behind bars today after their arrest Tuesday for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.
Edwin D. Willis, 39, of London, Michael Mierwinski, 34, of London and Natasha Boone, 27, of Lily, all remain in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
London Police Chief Stewart Walker said the arrests were the result of an investigation he conducted with detectives Jimmy Phelps and Gary Proffitt.
According to Walker, the accused delivered crystal methamphetamine to a police informant on two separate occasions.
Stewart said the first drug delivery was on April 11 when the suspects allegedly delivered approximately three grams of meth to the informant.
Then on Tuesday, Stewart said the accused delivered crystal meth to the same informant — and the trio were arrested upon delivery.
Mierwinski and Boone remained jailed under $25,000 cash bonds. Willis also is listed as having a $25,000 cash bond for these charges, however, jail records indicate he is also charged with a parole violation — which leaves him jailed without bond.
The three suspects are scheduled to appear in court April 24.
Red light run leads to DUI arrest
Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Deputy Robbie Grimes arrested Joshua L. Cox, 29, of Corbin Wednesday after conducting a traffic stop.
Cox was driving a white Ford Expedition.
Grimes said the driver of the Ford ran a red light on West Cumberland Gap Parkway in southern Laurel County.
Following an investigation, Root said the driver, Cox, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, disregarding a traffic control device and other traffic offenses.
Cox was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
