Three face organized crime charges

LAUREL COUNTY — Four of the five people arrested Oct. 17 after an investigation into illegal drug trafficking at Laurel’s Trailer Park in London were named in a nine-count indictment Friday.

And three of them face charges of organized crime.

According to Laurel County Sheriff John Root, more than six grams of meth, digital scales, pipes, empty small bags and cash were seized during the raid.

Charles Morgan, 44, Phillip Conley, 24, Andrew Floyd, 27, and Gary Evans, 54, all of London, were each charged with various counts on the indictment.

The first two counts indict Morgan for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second offense, by allegedly selling meth. He was convicted of his first offense in Rockcastle District Court in 2001.

Conley and Floyd are named in the third count of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, also by allegedly selling meth.

Morgan, Conley and Floyd all were indicted on the fourth count of engaging in organized crime by allegedly committing the crime of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, that substance being meth.

Count Five indicts Evans on first-degree possession of a controlled substance by allegedly having in his possession a quantity of meth.

Count Six indicts Morgan for first-degree promoting contraband. That count comes from a small baggie of meth found in Morgan’s shoe while he was being booked into jail. Root said Morgan told deputies he could not keep up with all the little baggies he made up in a day.

Count Seven indicts Floyd for resisting arrest, and Count Eight indicts Evans for resisting arrest.

Evans was named in the ninth count for second-degree persistent felony offender, as he was convicted in Laurel County Circuit Court for complicity to theft of services in 2009.

Morgan and Conley remain in the Laurel County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.

Those involved in the initial investigation and arrests were Root, Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Lt. Rodney Van Zant, Sgt. Josh Gaylor, detectives Jason Back, Brad Mitchell, Daryl Zanet, Charlie Loomis and Tommy Johnston, Deputy William Bo Harris and bailiffs Shane Rice and Brandon Broughton. Assisting from the London Police Department was Sgt. Doug Thomas and Officer Brian Lawson.
