Two arrested on drug charges in separate incidents

RICHMOND — Richmond Police arrested two individuals on drug charges in separate incidents early last week.

On May 19, police were dispatched to Meijer at approximately 8 p.m. to investigate a shoplifting incident, the police report stated.

Upon arrival, store employees said they observed Jennifer L. Stevens, 31, of Douglas Court, conceal several items in her purse and attempt to leave without paying.

Employees who detained her said they recovered $117 in merchandise and then called police.

When taken into custody, police said a search of Stevens’ purse produced three packets of heroin, more than 20 oxycodone pills, a clonazepam pill, an alpazolam pill and drug paraphernalia.

She was charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first- and third-degree possession of controlled substance, theft by unlawful taking (under $500) and public intoxication.

An Estill County bench warrant charging Stevens with failure to pay fines also was served on her,  the report stated.

She was booked into the Madison County Detention Center where she remained Tuesday evening under a $15,000 cash bond, according to jail personnel.

After receiving a complaint about drug activity on North Third Street just before 8 p.m. May 20, police made contact with Ronald Moore, 31, at his residence. During the contact, police said they recovered 1.5 ounces of marijuana, a small amount of cocaine, two scales and other drug-trafficking paraphernalia.

Moore was charged with marijuana trafficking and first-degree possession of a controlled substance. He was lodged in the detention center where he remained Tuesday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.

Anyone with information about these cases can contact the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
