Three arrested on drug charges

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Three Whitley County residents landed in jail after Whitley County sheriff’s deputies investigated an anonymous tip Thursday.

Sheriff Colan Harrell said that Nikki Sharae Brock, 32, and Teresa G. Monhollen, 46, both of Williamsburg, and James Corbin, 42, of Rockholds, were arrested by K-9 Deputy Kirk Mays and now face several drug-related charges.

Harrell said the tipster reported that someone was manufacturing methamphetamine on Whetstone Road.

The sheriff said when deputies arrived, a woman was seen emerging from underneath the mobile home — who then darted for the woods behind the residence.

He explained that Sgt. Brian Lawson and Deputy John Hill charged after the woman in a foot chase, and subsequently arrested her.

That woman was allegedly Brock, Harrell said.

Once Brock was secured, Hill and Lawson reportedly heard movement from inside the mobile home.

They entered the residence and found Monhollen and Corbin — allegedly hiding in a closet, the sheriff said.

During officer protocol to ensure safety, Harrell said that deputies could smell a strong chemical odor — they also reportedly spotted drug paraphernalia and other contraband in plain sight.

Harrell said that led Lawson and Narcotics Detective Sgt. Tim Baker to get a search warrant on the home.

The sheriff said that search revealed two active meth labs, meth precursors, finished meth, several pills, Suboxone strips and other paraphernalia.

The Kentucky State Police’s Drug Enforcement Special Investigations (DESI) unit was contacted to properly dispose of the active meth lab and components.

All three suspects face charges of manufacturing meth, first offense, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth), third-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of meth precursors.

Corbin faces an additional charge of second-degree possession of a controlled substance. Brock faces an additional charge of second-degree fleeing or evading police on foot.

All suspects remain jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center, and all three are under a $50,000 cash bond.

The investigation continues, Harrell said.
