LONDON, KY—On Sunday, April 17th, London Police responded to a complaint of a man and woman sleeping in a vehicle at the KY-192 Speedway gas pumps.
Through investigation, London residents Robert L. Collins, 29, and Amanda M. Eversole, 26, were arrested.
Sgt. Daniel Robinson and Ofc. Jacob Bormann arrived at the scene and approached the vehicle, noticing that Collins was in the front passenger’s seat slumped over with a lit cigarette between his legs. Eversole was in the driver’s seat asleep as well, with the vehicle turned off. When Sgt. Robinson woke them, they responded that they were waiting on family to bring them money.
“I began checking the subjects for identification and neither had one on them,” Sgt. Robinson said.
The two also did not have insurance on the vehicle. When Eversole stepped out of the vehicle Sgt. Robinson determined through the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test that she did not have a nystagmus. Through consent to search the vehicle Ofc. Bormann discovered a metal spoon with powder residue, a metal pipe, several plastic baggies, and four hypodermic needles. Within one of the plastic bags was white powder residue, which was determined through a field test to be Methamphetamine. Also found was a glass pipe and rolling papers.
Collins was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (Methamphetamine), buying/possessing drug paraphernalia, and Eversole was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (Methamphetamine), buying/possessing drug paraphernalia, and failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance. Both were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
