Three arrested in B’ville drug roundup

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble, Staff Writer

A “fast action” roundup, initiated by Barbourville Police late Wednesday into Thursday morning, led to the arrest of three local men on drug charges.

Arrested were Kevin “Memphis” Malone, 26, Michael Napier, 35, and Steve Roark, 29, all of Barbourville.

Malone was charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, trafficking in less than eight ounces of marijuana, and intimidating a participant in a legal process. Napier was charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, while Roark was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. All were held in the Knox County Jail.

According to the Barbourville Police Department, the small roundup was based on several ongoing investigations conducted by Det. Brian Senters. Because of complaints from residents and information obtained during the investigations, actions in several ongoing were expedited, which resulted in the three arrests.

Quantities of marijuana, Suboxone and Oxycodone were purchased and seized during the course of the investigation.

Barbourville Police say the investigations continue, with more charges and arrests anticipated.
