Five indicted in meth ring


Five people were indicted for allegedly manufacturing methamphetamine and were additionally charged with engaging in organized crime.

Lowell Scott Jr., 40, and Shannon Scott, 39, both of 850 East Pittsburg Road; 28-year-old Jennifer Wallace, also known as Jennifer Jones and Jennifer Ogle, of 4462 Keavy Road; Jeffrey Campbell, 41, 487 Maple Grove School Road, and 22-year-old Timothy Roberts, all of London, were named in an indictment returned by a Laurel grand jury last Friday.

All five are charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; engaging in organized crime; and possession of drug paraphernalia on Jan. 16. The indictment claims the five had equipment and/or chemicals used to make methamphetamine as well as drug paraphernalia. The engaging in organized crime charge stems from the claims that they organized, conspired and participated among themselves and others to produce methamphetamine.

Jeffrey Campbell is additionally charged with being a first-degree persistent felony offender. Campbell has three prior felony convictions — two in Laurel County for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in 2003 and theft by unlawful tasking in 2011. His first felony conviction occurred in Knox County in 1993 for theft by unlawful taking over $300.

Other indictments returned last week included:

• Garra Harp, 21, of 1914 Goodwin St. in Corbin - second-degree escape on Feb. 4 by escaping from the custody of Emcon Home Guard while on home incarceration for a felony offense.

• Johnny Curry, 341, of 37 Shirley Don Road in Manchester - flagrant non-support on his infant child from Mar. 1, 2007 through Mar. 21, 2014.

• Paul Bartley, 53, of 494 Left Fork Dry Branch Road in Jonancy, Ky. - flagrant non-support of his infant child from Aug. 1, 2004 through March 2014.

• Debbie Williams, 48, of 5 Osborne Lane in Corbin - second-degree trafficking in a controlled substances, first offense and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, stemming from an incident on Dec. 10 in which Williams allegedly sold 20 or more Hydrocodone pills and 20 or more Alprazoam pills.
