Man arrested for meth, public intoxication

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — On Nov. 2, Officers Jacob Bormann and Justin Hopkins responded to a suspicious vehicle parked at Hardee’s Restaurant on Ky. 192.

The officers located the vehicle, a 2001 Volkswagen Beetle, and found the driver — Ronnie Gentry, 52, of 690 Greenwood Dr. — seemed to be under the influence.

Gentry was asked to step out of the vehicle. As he did, a clear plastic bag fell to the ground.  Officers found the bag contained 7 grams of methamphetamine.  Officers also recovered $412 and a small metal container, which contained residue.

Gentry was arrested and charged with public intoxication, controlled substance excludes alcohol; first-degree possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, first offense; first-degree trafficking in controlled substances, greater than or equal to 2 grams of methamphetamine, first offense and tampering with physical evidence.

He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
