Man accused of selling drugs while on home detention in court

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

An East Bernstadt man facing several charges in two separate cases appeared before Judge Tom Jensen in Laurel County Circuit Court Friday.

Milford Allen, Jr., 48, faces charges of trafficking in marijuana, second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, three counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, endangering the welfare of a minor and receiving stolen property.

Allen now has a June 10 trial date set for both cases.

Attorney Mike Brophy represents Allen in one case, and stood in for Allen’s regular attorney in the other case.

Commonwealth Attorney Jackie Steele must decide before the trial date which case to try first, and provide that information to the defense.

Allen is scheduled for a final pretrial conference May 31.

The latest set of charges came after Laurel County Sheriff’s detectives Jason Back and Brad Mitchell served a search warrant on his Dean Hundley Road residence. That warrant was obtained after the sheriff’s office received several complaints.

Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Gilbert Acciardo said the search uncovered about three pounds of marijuana, Xanax and hydrocodone pills, 13 rifles, 17 pistols, two flat-screen TVs and more than $45,000 in cash.

Allen was wearing an ankle bracelet at the time.

His previous charges stem from a July 2012 arrest. In that case, Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Detective Sgt. Tommy Johnston investigated a complaint that a man was receiving stolen property at his Dean Hundley Road residence in East Bernstadt.

Root said deputies went to the residence and retrieved a firearm reported stolen and discovered other items believed to be stolen.

Allen was arrested then and charged with receiving stolen property, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Property seized included in that case numerous rifles, a pressure washer, chain saws, power tools, a jewelry box and fishing equipment.

He was previously convicted in May 1988 for burglary and received five years in that case.

Allen remains jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center under two separate cash bonds of $50,000 each.
