Two arrested on trafficking, possession charges

RICHMOND — On Wednesday, Richmond Police arrested Ryan Blake, 24, of McKinney Lane and Robert Burton, 24, of Mount Sterling, on drug charges after officers responded to a dispute.

Officers were called to the Country Hearth Inn to quell a civil dispute, according to a Richmond Police Department news release. They encountered Blake and Burton in a motel room, where they also found a syringe containing suspected heroin, a small baggie of suspected heroin, five alprazolam pills, a bag containing an unknown powder suspected of being a controlled substance, and a digital scale hidden in the room.

Officers also found syringes and heroin on Burton’s person, the police report stated.

Both men were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

Blake was charged with first- and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Burton, charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, was released Friday on a $5,000 unsecured third-party bond, according to a jail booking officer.

Blake remained in jail Friday under a $15,000 bond.



Man charged with meth making

Nathan A. Hisle, 19, of Lancaster Road, was arrested Friday on several drug charges, including manufacturing methamphetamine.

According to the news release, RPD narcotics detectives executed a search warrant at Hisle's residence as part of an ongoing drug investigation. They recovered three marijuana plants, a small baggie of suspected methamphetamine, and a methamphetamine lab, along with other items commonly used to manufacture the drug, in Hisle’s bedroom.

Hisle was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and cultivation of marijuana. He remained in jail Friday under a $10,000 bond.



Woman arrested for theft, drug offenses

Dana Yeary, 45, of Foxhaven Drive, was charged June 22 with numerous offenses related to alleged fraudulent use of a credit card.

According to the police report, officers were dispatched to the Hallmark at Richmond Centre to investigate a report that Yeary attempted to use a stolen credit card. He had left before the officers arrived and reportedly took a Louis Vuitton purse containing credit cards and personal documents that belonged to the clerk.

Officers later discovered one of the cards had been fraudulently used at Cracker Barrel as well as Bottles and Cases in Richmond to purchase $44 worth of merchandise. She also tried to use the card she attempted to use at Hallmark and at Ollie’s, but it was rejected.

Based on a description of Yeary and the vehicle she was driving given by Hallmark employees,  police located her at a relative’s apartment on Foxhaven Drive.

A search revealed a bracelet and pair of earrings valued at $24 taken from Hallmark in Yeary’s purse and a marijuana cigarette, the police report stated.

Yeary was charged with theft by unlawful taking under $500, possession of marijuana, two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card under $500, two counts of attempted fraudulent use of a credit card under $500, tampering with physical evidence and receiving stolen property under $10,000.

She was taken to the detention center, where corrections personnel reportedly discovered eight diazepam pills and a hydrocodone pill concealed on her person. She then was charged with promoting contraband, second- and third-degree possession of a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence.

Yeary remained in jail Friday evening under bonds totaling $7,500.
