LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — The Sheriff’s Most Wanted list has been whittled a bit thinner following the arrests of two of the five wanted persons.

Brenda Garland, 66, who lists an address of 63 Camer Drive in Gray, was arrested by Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Back and Detective Brad Mitchell around 1 p.m. Wednesday. She was wanted on charges of second-degree and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. She is held in the Laurel County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.

Gladys Webb, 64, 221 Third St. in Manchester, turned herself in to the sheriff’s office on Tuesday morning after hearing that she was a wanted suspect in illegal drug trafficking. Sgt. E.R. Rudder placed Webb under arrest and she was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center but was released Wednesday afternoon on a $10,000 fully secured bond.

Three other persons wanted are David Lee Clark, Erma McGraw and Johna Gail Gilbert. All three are wanted for trafficking in a controlled substance and were part of the wanted persons sought during the sheriff’s drug roundup in November of last year.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Clark, McGraw, and Gilbert is urged to contact the sheriff’s office at (606) 864-6600. Callers can remain anonymous and all information given is strictly confidential.
