LONDON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Three people were arrested on drug charges at a motel in Laurel County Thursday morning.
Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies say the arrests came at a motel off West Cumberland Gap Parkway, about ten miles south of London.
Deputies say they found a man and woman drunk in the motel parking lot in a vehicle along with a large quantity of crystal methamphetamine, paraphernalia, syringes and a BB gun that resembled a pistol.
Investigators say they found another man and a large quantity of crystal methamphetamine, digital scales, syringes, marijuana and money inside a motel room. Deputies say the man created a disturbance, but was arrested after a brief scuffle.
Deputies say the woman who was arrested gave them a false name by using another woman’s identification during her arrest. She was later positively identified using fingerprints as 30-year old Amara Creech, of Georgetown. Deputies say she was already wanted in Laurel County on drug charges following an indictment.
Deputies say they also arrested 43-year old Johnny Lee Arthur, of London and 41-year old Damas Glen Osborne, of Somerset.
All three were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
