DUI and drug arrest on north U.S. 25

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Kevin Berry and Shane Rice were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle complaint, two and a half miles north of London on Thursday, Nov. 21 at approximately. 7:43 a.m.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they observed a red pickup in the yard of the residence, and a male subject in the driver’s seat, engine running. The vehicle apparently drove into the yard, got stuck, leaving a muddy trail through the yard. As deputies investigated, the homeowners told them no one was supposed to be at their residence. Deputies determined the subject was under the influence, and arrested him. Charlie Helton Jr., 56, of London, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence.

Helton was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center. When there, Deputy Jailer Ricky Woods discovered a small baggie of suspected white crystal methamphetamine and a dollar bill rolled up containing a white powder on it in Helton’s possession as he was being processed in.

Deputy Berry also charged Helton with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense (methamphetamine); possession of drug paraphernalia, and first-degree promoting contraband.
