Traffic stop nets two arrests

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A routine traffic stop sent a driver and a passenger to the Laurel County Detention Center on Saturday afternoon.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Scott conducted a routine traffic stop on a vehicle traveling along Hal Rogers Parkway, three miles east of London, around 4:18 p.m.

In that incident, 40-year-old Kristen Roark of Ed Holland Road in Essie, Ky., was charged on a Clay County bench warrant for alcohol intoxication in a public place. Her passenger, 33-year-old Josh D. Roark of Aspin Lane in Roark, Ky., was charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon after Scott discovered a pistol on him. Josh Roark reportedly did not have a permit to possess a concealed weapon.

Both were taken to the Laurel County Detention Center following their arrests.
