PULASKI COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE ARREST 3 ON DRUG CHARGES

 

Sheriff Greg Speck reports that on December 18, 2020 Deputy Trent Massey was working on an overdose case and through that investigation was able to obtain enough information to get a search warrant for a residence on Jacksboro Road in Ferguson, Ky. Deputy Massey had information that someone at that residence was involved in illegal drug trafficking.
 

Deputy Massey, along with several Deputies with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and Officer Desmond Brittle with the Ferguson Police Department went to the residence to serve the search warrant. When the Deputies and Officer Brittle arrived, they found approximately 13 people on the premises. Some were hiding in the residence and a couple were outside.
 

During the search, Deputy Massey, assisted by the other officers, located approximately 38.49 grams of Methamphetamine, five (5) suspected Suboxone tablets, eight and a half (8.5) suspected Xanax bars, a set of digital scales and $435.00 in US currency.
 

Brandon Mayfield, age 31, of Hacker Road in Somerset, Kentucky was located hiding in a hole in the wall with three (3) bags of the suspected Methamphetamine and $435.00 US currency.
 

Brandon Mayfield was charged with the following charges:
• Trafficking in Controlled Substance, 1st Degree, 1st Offense (over 2 grams of Methamphetamine)
• Trafficking in a Controlled Substance, 3rd Degree, 1st Offense – (less than 20 Dose Units – Drug Unspecified)
• Trafficking in a Controlled Substance, 2nd Degree, 1st Offense (less than ten dose units Schedule 1 and 2 Non-Narcotic)
• Possession of Marijuana

 

Brandon Mayfield also had a Bench Warrant out of Pulaski District Court for Failure to Pay Fines on traffic charges he had back in 2019. The 2019 charges were from where he had received citations for No Insurance, No License in Possession and an Obstructed Windshield. This Bench Warrant was served by Sergeant Steven Alexander. Mr. Mayfield owes the court over $1,000 dollars.
 

Brandon Mayfield was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center where he remains lodged as of this press release.

 

During the search of the residence, Deputies located a small baggie containing approximately 0.92 grams of suspected Heroin in the basement area of the house. Noah Bolin, age 23, of Maple Lane Spur in Science Hill, Kentucky was located hiding in a hole in the wall of the basement. He was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, 1st Degree, 1st Offense (Heroin).

 

Sergeant Steven Alexander served a Parole Violation on Mr. Bolin for Absconding Parole Supervision and Failure to Complete Treatment for Substance Abuse. 
 

Noah Bolin was later transported to the Pulaski County Detention Center where he remains lodged as of this press release.
 

Another person who was at the residence was a Dillan Gage Shadoan, age 20, of Mountain Air Drive in Somerset, Kentucky. Mr. Shadoan had an active Probation Violation Warrant on him and was arrested for the Probation Violation. He was later transported to the Pulaski County Detention Center. At the jail, the staff discovered a small quantity of suspected Heroin weighing approximately 0.4 grams. In addition to the Probation Violation Warrant, Mr. Shadoan was charged with Promoting Contraband, 1st Degree, a felony. He remains lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center as of this press release.

Sheriff Greg Speck reports that on December 21, 2020, at approximately 12:42 AM, Deputy Tan Hudson stopped a GMC Sierra pickup. In the front seat were two male occupants, the driver and a passenger. There was a female in the truck's back seat, identified as Courtney Drury, age 29, of Sears Road in Somerset, Kentucky.


During Deputy Hudson's investigation and search of the truck, he located suspected  Methamphetamine on the person of Ms. Drury. Deputy Hudson located a purse that belonged to
her, and inside the purse, Deputy Hudson located 2.5 grams of suspected Methamphetamine
along with multiple baggies. Deputy Hudson also located a Xanax with the suspected
Methamphetamine. Deputy Hudson continued his investigation and questioning of Ms. Drury.
She removed another 30 grams of suspected Methamphetamine from her person along with
Suboxone pills. Deputy Hudson secured these items.

Methamphetamine)
2. Possess of a Controlled Substance, 3rd Degree – Suboxone and Xanax (two counts)

During the investigation, it was also discovered that Courtney Drury had a Bench Warrant out of Pulaski District Court where she had failed to appear for a Pretrial Conference to answer to a charge of Unlawful Access to Computer, 1st Degree. That warrant was served on her by Deputy Tan Hudson.
 

Courtney Drury was taken to the Pulaski County Detention Center, where she was lodged. At the jail, detention center staff located approximately .5 more grams of Methamphetamine and notified Deputy Hudson, who went back to the jail to seize it. She will have an additional charge of Promoting Contraband, 1st Degree, a felony.

LIBERTY CITY COUNCIL GETS BACK TO WORK ON WATER/SEWER RATES

 

The Liberty City Council met in regular session Monday.

 

The council voted to declare two pieces of property as surplus, a defunct garbage truck, and an old one horse wagon.

 

That was followed by another very lengthy discussion concerning the City's water and sewer rates. 

At last weeks special meeting a motion was made to adopt a new rate structure for residential and commercial customers. That motion died due to lack of a second. 

 

As it stands the City continues to operate water and sewer at a deficit with a very large payment looming for the city this spring. 

 

Councilman Richard Montgomery...

 

 

Councilman Bryan Beeler requested a 12 month breakdown of water usage and bills per customer. The council decided to call a special work session once that spreadsheet is completed, and they will resume the discussion at that meeting.

NAT'L CHRISTMAS WREATH PROGRAM HONORS FALLEN KSP TROOPERS

 

It can be hard for families who have lost someone dear to them to find the holiday spirit, especially those that have lost a loved one in the line of duty. Two women over 600 miles apart connected through social media to turn their tragedies into an honorable holiday tradition. In doing so, they have helped other families like theirs begin to heal.

 

The Fallen Heroes Wreath Program was started by the family of Philadelphia police officer, John Pawlowski, who was killed in the line of duty on February 13, 2009. Pawlowski’s sister-in-law, Michelle Pawlowski was inspired by the national ‘Wreaths Across America’ program and with the help of her family, they produced and placed Christmas wreaths at the final resting places of fallen law enforcement officers during the holiday season.

 

“During the season of giving, this is a wonderful way to honor those who gave everything,” said Gov. Andy Beshear. “I know my family joins many others across Kentucky in remembering the service and sacrifice of those who are not with us this holiday season.”

 

Michelle shared photos of the wreaths in a Facebook group for families of fallen officers. Brenda Tiffany, mother of fallen Kentucky State Police Trooper Cameron Ponder, saw the post and made a comment. From there, Michelle and Brenda immediately connected.

 

“Both of our families have been through the same thing,” added Pawloski. “I sent her a wreath for her son Cameron and before I knew it, we were sending 37 wreaths to the Kentucky State Police.”

Tiffany says the original wreath honored her son, but she wanted to be able to honor all those who were part of the Kentucky State Police. The agency has 37 fallen officers dating back to 1948.

 

This is the second year KSP received Christmas wreaths for their fallen with the help of Tiffany. The wreaths are placed at each gravesite of fallen KSP units in memory of Trooper Ponder, who died in the line of duty on September 13, 2015.

 

“For the families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty, this time brings with it a sadness no words can describe,” said Tiffany. “The Fallen Hero Wreath Program wraps their arms around the families of the fallen. Their gift of love reminds us, when we need it most, our beloved officers are never forgotten.”

 

The online Fallen Trooper and Officer Memorial can be found on the KSP webpage at, https://kentuckystatepolice.org/fallenmemorial/. To learn more or to contribute to the Fallen Heroes Wreath Program, visit their website at https://www.fallenheroeswreathprogram.org/.
