Eight arrested in Knox drug roundup

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Threats of rain did not stop the Knox County Sheriff’s Office from rounding up and arresting eight drug-trafficking suspects Monday morning.

Sheriff John Pickard said the roundup was the end result of a long-term investigation of drug trafficking in Knox County.

“All the suspects we arrested (Monday) all have drug trafficking charges,” Pickard said, adding the job of cleaning up drugs in Knox County goes on.

“We’re working on them — we work on drugs every day,” Pickard said. “Sometimes it doesn’t pan out.”

He said that often, people don’t realize the work behind the scenes prior to the actual arrest. “It just takes time,” Pickard said, explaining sometimes the undercover buys don’t take place, or the targeted trafficker runs out of drugs to sell. “We work on this every day — and we will continue to work on it every day and get every one we can,” he said.

Those arrested Monday and their charges include:

— Steve Ray Brewer, 32, of Corbin, faces one count of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He was jailed in the Knox County Detention Center under a $5,000 cash bond.

— Denver Crawford, 73, of Gray, faces three counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He was jailed in the detention center and released on bond Monday afternoon.

— Brooke D. Dozier, 24, of Gray, faces one count of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. She remains jailed in the Knox County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.

— Charles J. Gray, 32, of Corbin, faces one count of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense. He was jailed in the detention center and remains there under an unknown bond.

— Bradley Dean Hinkle, 35, of Corbin, faces one count of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense. He remains jailed in the detention center under a $5,000 cash bond.

— Eric Isom, 33, of Corbin, faces one count of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He remains jailed in the Knox County Detention Center under a $5,000 cash bond.

— Russell Jenkins, 55, of Woodbine, faces one charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He was jailed in the detention center and released Monday afternoon on an unknown bond amount.

— Kevin S. Mullins, 43, of Corbin, faces one charge of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense. He remains jailed in the detention center under a $5,000 cash bond.

Pickard was one of six hitting the streets Monday for the roundup. Others who assisted include Chief Deputy Derek Eubanks, Deputy Harold Mays, Deputy Curt Corey, Deputy Drew Wilson and Deputy Kelly Faris.
