CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Three arrested for drug trafficking north of London

Three persons from Ohio were arrested Thursday afternoon in Laurel County by Kentucky State Police — all of them booked on drug trafficking charges.

Everett Stone, 55; Michael A. Mast, 49; and Brenda Haynes, 50, all from Wooster, Ohio, were each charged with Trafficking in marijuana. They were jailed at the Laurel County Detention Facility.

The incident happened at 2:41 p.m. According to KSP Post 11 in London, Sgt. Lafe Owens and Detective Darren Allen were on routine patrol on I-75 when they stopped at a local fuel station 10 miles north of London. It was there that they observed Stone exhibiting suspicious behavior.

Owens and Allen approached Stone and had a conversation with him. They determined he was driving a Recreational Vehicle, and later the Troopers had a suspicion of possible illegal activity. They received consent by Mast, the RV’s owner,  to search the vehicle.

When they investigated further, State Troopers discovered 3.2 pounds of processed and packaged marijuana inside the RV, and also seized $3,400 in cash.

Det. Allen, Troopers Jason McCowan, Eric Moore and Ryan Loudermilk, along with Officer Duffy Sutton, assisted at the scene.

Sgt. Owens continues to investigate.

Domestic dispute ends in man’s arrest

A Laurel County man with a gun threatened to shoot others, but was caught Thursday night and arrested on two charges.

Matthew S. Begley, 37, of East Bernstadt was charged with fourth degree assault (Domestic Violence) and Alcohol Intoxication. He was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility.

The incident occurred around 10:15 p.m.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Daniel Grigsby and Robbie Grimes were dispatched by Laurel 911 to a domestic dispute in progress, eight miles north of London on Charles Johnson Lane.

As deputies responded to the scene, they were told a man there had gotten a gun and was threatening to shoot everyone. When they arrived at the residence, deputies located Begley inside the home with a gun beside him. He stepped outside, and through investigating, deputies learned that Begley had made threats with the gun and near three children there.

Begley was also under the influence of alcohol, according to the deputies.
