Warrant service ends with drug arrest

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

When Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott tried to serve a civil summons on a Corbin man, he was met with some difficulties.

Parrott went to a residence on American Greeting Card Road, nine miles south of London, around 7 p.m. Wednesday to serve a civil summons on Mark A. Mullins.

Parrott saw someone come to the door and look out, then run to the rear of the home. The homeowner did answer Parrott’s knock, and during a conversation with the home owner, it was determined Mullins was in the residence.

However, when Parrott tried to confirm the man’s identity, he was given Mullins’ brother’s name and social security number as a means to conceal his own identity. Parrott did however confirm Mark Mullins was the man he was seeking. Mullins was taken into custody on charges of unsworn falsification to authorities, giving an officer a false name or address, prescription of a controlled substance not in its proper container. Mullins possessed a pill that was not prescribed to him, saying a friend had given it to him.

But Mullins’ legal trouble had just begun.

When taken into the Laurel County Detention Center after his arrest, Deputy Jailers located two small bags of suspected methamphetamine in Mullins’ boots. He was additionally charged with first-degree promoting contraband and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
