Arrests made in drug investigations

11-30-11 —     An investigation into the prescription pill problem in the county and the execution of a search warrant on November 23 resulted in the arrest of three men, according to Wayne County Sheriff Charles Boston.

    The Wayne County Sheriff’s Department and the Lake Cumberland Area Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at the home of Bill Taylor, North KY 1009. The search warrant was the result of an ongoing investigation by the Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Task Force into trafficking of prescription pills.

    Inside the Taylor residence, deputies and agents located cash and several prescription bottles with the labels removed. The bottles contained metha-done, oxycodone and hydrocodone with an estimated street value of over $5,000.

    Taylor was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance first degree and trafficking in a controlled substance second degree.

    Jonathan Condreay and Ry Miller were at the Taylor residence during the execution of the search warrant. Condreay was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance first degree.  

Miller was arrested on an outstanding warrant from Wayne County.

    All three men were lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center.

    The investigation is continuing.

    On November 20, deputies with the Sheriff’s Department received a tip that an individual with a pending indictment was traveling toward Monticello on a motorcycle. Deputies spotted a motorcycle at Cumberland Green fitting the description.

    The individual on the motorcycle could not produce any form of identification and provided false information to deputies about his name. He then took off running and following a short foot pursuit was apprehended.

    The backpack the man was carrying contained lithium batteries, Coleman fuel, acid, lye, and ammonia nitrate, which are consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Also in the backpack were several syringes, match sticks and pliers.

    Johnnie Hall, 37, of Bronston, was arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine, fleeing or evading police first degree, giving an officer a false name or address and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Hall was also arrested on a Pulaski County indictment for manufacturing methamphetamine and persistent felony offender.

    Boston also reported that on November 10, the Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at the residence of Tom Day on East KY 92. The search warrant was the result of an ongoing investigation into the manufacturing and trafficking of methamphetamine.

    Inside the Day residence, deputies and agents located Coleman fuel, ammonia nitrate, lye, salt, lithium, pseudoephedrine, bottles, tubing, a measuring cup, glass jars, digital scales, a grinder, a funnel and bottles with tubes glued in the lid. They also discovered an undetermined amount of methamphetamine.

    A warrant was later issued for Day and he was arrested November 22 and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

    The investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.
