MANNINGTON, Ky. (3/29/14) ― Kentucky State Police arrested three Hopkins County residents on drug-related charges at 7:22 p.m. Friday, March 28.
According to a KSP report, Trooper Joseph Bartolotti saw two vehicles ― a red GMC truck and a gray Ford truck ― parked at the dead end of Kentucky 2171 near the Pennyrile Parkway. He also saw a male standing beside the GMS making what appeared to be a hand-to-hand drug transaction, the report said.
As Bartolotti initiated a traffic stop, a female later identified as Tamberly K. Young aka Tamberly Kay Franklin, 45, of Earlington, exited the passenger side of the red GMC and fled on foot. She was apprehended without incident after a short foot pursuit. Bartolotti located drugs and drug paraphernalia that Franklin had thrown into a wooded area.
She was charged with fleeing or evading police, second-degree, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, first-degree/cocaine and tampering with physical evidence.
Also arrested were Robert M. Young, 65, of Earlington, who was the driver of the red GMC. He was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, third degree, possession of open alcohol container in a motor vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a DUI suspended license, first degree with aggravating circumstances and DUI, third offense with aggravating circumstances.
