Sealed indictments Twelve persons arrested on drug related charges

1-12-11 —   Twelve of the 20 individuals named in sealed indictments returned by 

the Wayne County Grand Jury last month have been arrested, according  

to information released last week by the Lake Cumberland Area Drug  

Task Force.

    The local indictments involved 40 felony drug trafficking cases in 

Monti-cello and Wayne County, and brought the total number of local  

cases filed by the LCADTF in 2010 to 80.

    The following is a list of individuals arrested last week, along 

with the offenses they were charged with:

    • Chester Eugene Decker, 48, Adair Street, Monticello, two counts of 

first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second offense,  

and persistent felony offender second degree

    • Shirley Y. Young, 61, Monticello, five counts of first degree 

trafficking in a controlled substance

      • Ricky H. Garner, 38, three counts of convicted felon in 

possession of a firearm

      • Jonathan L. Moran, 33, Monticello, two counts of second degree 

trafficking in a controlled substance and persistent felony offender  

first degree

      • Larry F. Moore, 60, Hwy. 3606, Monticello, two counts of second 

degree trafficking in a controlled substance

      • Jerry Lee Davis, 34, Clay St., Monticello, manufacturing 

methamphetamine

      • Carl K. Shelton, 57, Jenkins St., Monticello,  four counts of 

first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second offense,  

convicted felon in possession of a handgun and persistent felony

      • Johnathan A. Hicks, 21, Massengale Road, Monticello,

      • Katrina A. Sexton, 33, E. Ky. 90, Monticello, first degree

      • Roger D. Sexton, 55, Rt. 3, Monticello, second degree

unlawful transaction with a minor

      • David C. Daffron, 27, Rankin St., Monticello, possession of 

marijuana and tampering with physical evidence

      • Matthew Brown, 22, Monticello, two counts of first degree 

trafficking in a controlled substance

    David Gilbert, Director of the LCADTF, noted that a total of over 

300 trafficking cases were made by the end of 2010 in the three-

county jurisdictions (McCreary, Pulaski and Wayne counties) of the  

LCADTF.

    Many of these case numbers involve investigations resulting in the 

identification and federal prosecution of drug trafficking  

organizations.

    Two such organizations, consisting of over 20 individuals in each 

organization, worked in an organized, multi-state, business structure  

distributing cocaine and Mexican marijuana.

    Earlier this year the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet 

transferred the LCADTF's Bureau of Justice Assistance grant money  

from the City of Somerset to the City of Monticello,  which is now  

serving as the fiscal agent for the Drug Task Force.

    Gilbert expressed his appreciation to the City of Monticello and 

Monticello Police Chief Ralph Miniard for taking on the LCADTF and  

becoming their fiduciary agent.

    "Our first and foremost mission is to target and prosecute illegal 

drug traffickers preying on our citizens, especially our youth, in  

this regional area," noted Gilbert.

    The LCADTF in-cludes local, state and federal drug enforcement 

agencies working together to target mid to upper level drug  

traffickers and drug trafficking organizations.
