Three arrested for illegal drugs

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A man who was on bond for a Laurel Circuit Court indictment for drug charges was arrested the day before his court hearing.

Timothy Fields, 50, of Jackson Road, is now charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, and trafficking in marijuana, less than eight ounces. Fields was due in court on Friday for trafficking more than 2 grams of methamphetamine and more than 20 pills of prescription medication. He has a prior meth-related conviction, according to information in a press release from the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office.

But Fields was not the sole person arrested in the illegal drug trafficking ring that was ended by the investigation of Detective Jason Bank, Deputy Greg Turner and officers with the Kentucky Probation and Parole.

Southwind Street resident Liza Smallwood, 26, was also at the Jackson Road residence and allegedly had a small bag of a crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. She was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing methamphetamine, and trafficking in marijuana, less than eight ounces.

Bradley Fields, 27, of Pennington Drive in East Bernstadt was wanted for failing to appear in court on charges of second-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and tampering with physical evidence, driving under the influence, and leaving the scene of an accident.

All three were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
