Two arrested on meth charges


Complaints of meth manufacturing and distribution prompted an investigation resulting in the arrests of two persons.

The arrests came on Monday, just after noon, when Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Back and Deputy James Sizemore stopped a suspect vehicle on American Greeting Card Road, 12 miles south of London.

A quantity of amphetamine and items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine were discovered.

Arrested was Amy M. Steele, 34, of Farris Road. She was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense; and intent to defraud/scheme/artifice to obtain benefits under $10,000. That charge came after Steele was found to possess four EBT cards for food stamps in other people’s names.

Also arrested was 31-year-old Michael A. Nakonechy of Ky. 552 in Lily, charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense and trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense. Nakonechy was also wanted on Laurel County bench warrants for failing to appear in court on previous drug-related charges as well as numerous traffic related offenses.

Both were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
