Beattyville son, mother rack up multiple charges

RICHMOND — After responding to a complaint of drug use Monday in the Madison Hills area off Red House Road, Beattyville resident Derek J. Stamper, 22, and his mother, Deborah J. Stamper, 52, were charged with a series of offenses, according to a Richmond Police Department release.

Around 6:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to investigate the report of man using drugs in a vehicle. Officers located the suspected vehicle and stopped it for a traffic violation, the release stated.

Police said they discovered that Derek Stamper was driving on a suspended license and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.

After Stamper was taken into custody, police searched the vehicle and reported finding a syringe, a wallet containing identification, credit cards and checks belonging to another person. Stamper’s wallet contained additional credit cards that did not belong to him that also turned out to be stolen, according to the release.

While searching the vehicle, officers reported finding a pill bottle for oxaprozin in the purse of Deborah Stamper, a passenger. The bottle bore the name of another person, police said. Although the bottle was empty, 10 oxaprozin pills, a legend drug, were found in her purse, along with cut straws, the report stated.

Officers determined the pill bottle had been stolen and later found a cyclobenzaprine pill on Deborah Stamper’s person after she was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, they said.

Derek Stamper was charged with: no registration plates; operating a vehicle on a suspended license; no vehicle insurance; possession of drug paraphernalia; receiving stolen property under $10,000; and receiving stolen property under $500.

Two warrants served from Lee District Court charged him with theft of a controlled substance under $10,000 and theft by unlawful taking over $500.

Deborah Stamper was charged with: public intoxication; possession of drug paraphernalia; illegal possession of a legend drug; receiving stolen property under $10,000; theft of a legend drug under $300; and first-degree promoting of contraband.

Both mother and son were lodged in the detention center, each in lieu of a $5,000 cash bond, according to jail records.

Theft at Care Free Suites

On Monday, a contractor completing construction work inside the lobby of the Care Free Suites on Colby Taylor Drive reported a Dewalt 30-amp oscillating tool had been stolen from the lobby sometime during the past week. Estimated loss: $139.

Anyone with information regarding the above listed cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
