Laurel drug investigation lands two in jail

Complaints from residents about the illegal sale of drugs in London led to the arrest of two Laurel Countians.

Chester Saylor and Lillian Minton, both of London, were charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, and are currently being held in the Laurel County Detention Center.

Sheriff John Root reported the arrests came last Thursday when Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Back and Deputy James Sizemore conducted investigations and served search warrants in regard to complaints of drug sales going on at Amelia Street in London.

More than 100 pills, more than $7,500 in small bills and numerous firearms were recovered at the location by officers.

Deputies Mikey Ashurst and Tyler Morris assisted at the scene.

Root said Sheriff’s Narcotics Detectives are currently and are continuing to expand on this and other ongoing drug investigations.

East Bernstadt man arrested after train strikes truck

An East Bernstadt man was arrested on Friday for trespassing on CSX Railroad property after getting his truck stuck, which resulted in it getting hit by a train, according to Post 11 of the Kentucky State Police.

Around 12:30 p.m. July 13, State Trooper Justin Oliver received a report of a vehicle and train collision on CSX Railroad property off of Hazel Patch Road. After arriving at the collision site, Oliver determined that a white 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck had been driven onto CSX Railroad property where it became struck next to the railroad tracks. As the train approached, a male and a female attempted to flag down the train but the train was unable to stop and struck the truck, the police report said. The male and female then fled.

Oliver conducted an investigation into the incident which led to the identification of the male as Bradley Wayne Fields, 27, of East Bernstadt.

After 10 a.m. Friday, Oliver located Fields and charged him with third-degree criminal trespassing, first-degree criminal mischief, failure to report a traffic accident and failure of owner to maintain required insurance.

Fields was transported to the Laurel County Correctional Center. According to the police report, the female has not been identified. The investigation is continuing.
