LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
Pills, hypodermic needles, straws, and pen casings — all with suspected pill residue — were confiscated from a residence where Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies answered a domestic violence call.
The big bust came when Deputies Kevin Berry, Shawn Boroviak, and Josh Scott, along with Kentucky State Police Trooper Creekmore, went on Russell Dyche Memorial Highway, six miles west of London, on a complaint of a couple causing a public disturbance.
The early morning hour of nearly 3 a.m. did not deter the male and female who were having a verbal argument outside in their yard. The couple was yelling and screaming and the officers noticed a broken picture frame and the remnants of a cheeseburger splattered on the wall inside the house.
When officers inquired about other persons in the home, the couple said no one else was in the residence. However, during a search of the home, they found two people who were wanted on warrants hiding in a bedroom under some covers.
That’s where the officers found the drugs and drug paraphernalia, and placed the occupants of the home under arrest.
Those arrested were:
• Leanna L. Vasquez, 25, of Broadway Avenue in Sydney, Ohio, charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and second-degree hindering apprehension
• Zachary D. Hoskins, 24, of Buncomb Roa in Tyner, Ky., charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and second-degree hindering apprehension
• Jonathan R. Hoskins, 26, of Russell Dyche Memorial Highway in London, charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and an outstanding bench warrant for flagrant non-support in Laurel County and an outstanding bench warrant from Owsley County for fleeing and evading police, public intoxication, and possession of drug paraphernalia
• Amanda Leger, 31, Upper Rader Road in Manchester, charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance and a Clay County bench warrant for terroristic threatening
• Leonard Swanson Jr., 46, of Old Johnson Road in London, charged with alcohol intoxication.
All five were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center following their arrests.
