Four Arrested for Selling Prescriptions

mccracken sheriffMCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (6/9/14) — Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department Drug Division began an investigation into the alleged sale of prescription medication by 36 year old Jonathan Box and 25 year old Kaley Leek on June 5, 2014.

On June 5, detectives purchased doses of Morphine from the pair. Then on June 6, detectives purchased Fentanyl patches from Box and Leek, who are both of Paducah, Ky. Box and Leek were subsequently arrested at a gas station on Cairo Road.

During the investigation, detectives learned that the couple was purchasing the Fentanyl patches from a residence on Strathmoor Boulevard in Paducah, Ky. Detectives located 44 year old William Simons and 43 year old William Hoskins at the residence. Detectives learned that Simons and Hoskins collaborated to sell the Fentanyl patches. Marijuana was also located in their residence as well as a six year old child who was present during the drug transactions. Hoskins was also found to have an active warrant for his arrest in an unrelated matter.

The Sheriff’s Department receives many complaints regarding Fentanyl. It is a highly addictive, very strong drug that can easily lead to overdoses. It is prescribed to be ingested transdermally, but people commonly ingest it orally which can lead to serious injury or death.

Box, Leek, Hoskins and Simons were all lodged in the McCracken County Regional Jail. Box was charged with two counts of Trafficking Controlled Substance First Degree and Possession of a Controlled Substance First Degree. Leek was charged with two counts of Facilitation to Trafficking Controlled Substance First Degree. Hoskins was charged with Trafficking Controlled Substance First Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance First Degree, and Wanton Endangerment Second Degree. William Simons was arrested for Trafficking Controlled Substance First Degree, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Wanton Endangerment Second Degree.
