Five indicted for dealing meth

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Five people were indicted from an incident on Oct. 17 in which a quantity of methamphetamine was confiscated. Charles Morgan, 44, 24-year-old Phillip Conley, and 27-year-old Andrew Floyd list no addresses on the indictment, but the charges also include 54-year-old Gary Evans and 23-year-old Danielle Clark in the nine-count indictment.

Morgan is charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second offense, for selling 2 grams of methamphetamine to a police informant on Oct. 17 and within 90 days. Conley, Floyd and Clark are also charged with first offense of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and all four are accused of engaging in organized crime by conspiring to traffic illegal drugs.

Morgan is additionally charged with first-degree promoting contraband for possessing illegal substances when he was taken to jail.

Evans and Floyd are both charged with resisting arrest, with Evans facing two other charges of possessing a controlled substance and being a second-degree persistent felony offender. Evans has a Feb. 2009 conviction for complicity to theft of services in Laurel County and was given a three year sentence that was probated for five years. According to the indictment, Evans had only four more months of probation left when this offense occurred.

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office released information at the time of the arrests, stating that Conley possessed 13 small bags of methamphetamine, digital scales, pipes and empty small bags. Morgan allegedly had 11 small bags containing methamphetamine as well and was charged with promoting contraband when another small baggie of meth was found in his shoe. Both Conley and Morgan were arrested on Southwind Street in London.

An Old Whitley Road residence was the next site of a drug bust, in which Floyd was seen coming from an alleged drug dealer’s home and police found  small baggies of methamphetamine in his possession. The residence of the alleged drug dealing is located within 1,000 yards of a school.

An indictment is an accusation only and does not imply guilt or innocence.
