Two days, three meth arrests

SALYERSVILLE – Three people were arrested over a two-day span on methamphetamine-related charges.

On Sunday, October 29 just before 4 p.m., Magoffin County Sheriff Department’s Detective Neil Adams stopped Amber Schwable, 35, from Jackson, in the VIP Fuels parking lot. 

According to the arrest citation, Schwable allegedly had numerous syringes, straws and a container to hide them in, and a quantity of suspected methamphetamine in her purse. 

Schwable admitted to police that the items in her purse belonged to her and that the substance was meth.

She was taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center, where she remains at press time on a $2,500 cash bond. She is currently facing charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, methamphetamine (a Class D felony) and three charges of buying/possessing drug paraphernalia (a Class A misdemeanor). 

A preliminary hearing is scheduled in her case at the Magoffin County Justice Center on November 6 at 9:15 a.m.

Roughly four hours later, Salyersville Police Department’s Officer Mike Nickels stopped Wanda Miller, 40, of Salyersville, on Sugar Camp in Salyersville. 

Miller also allegedly had a quantity of meth on her person, according to the arrest citation. 

Reportedly, the drugs were found during a search at the jail, when a quantity of meth was found between her legs and under her breast. 

Nickels is still being held at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center, with a cash bond set at $2,500. She is charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, methamphetamine (a Class D felony); tampering with physical evidence (a Class D felony); and public intoxication of a controlled substance excluding alcohol (a Class B misdemeanor).    

A preliminary hearing is scheduled in her case at the Magoffin County Justice Center on November 6 at 9:15 a.m.

The next day, on Monday, October 30, Detective Neil Adams and Deputy Jonathan Holbrook pulled over a motorcycle on Kentucky Rt. 7, roughly seven miles south of Salyersville due to the license plate not being legible. 

Law enforcement noted in the arrest citation that Lloyd E. Perkins, 31, of Royalton, was reaching in and out of his pants pockets. When asked, Perkins said he only had money and keys in his pockets, but when he attempted to pull out the contents, a bag of suspected marijuana fell to the ground. Upon further search, police found a clear, plastic vial that contained suspected methamphetamine. 

Perkins admitted to the officers that the substance was meth, and it reportedly field-tested positive for meth, according to the arrest citation.

Perkins was taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center, and is currently being held on a $2,500 cash bond. He is charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, methamphetamine (a Class D felony); buying/possessing drug paraphernalia (a Class A misdemeanor); and possession of marijuana (a Class B misdemeanor). 

Perkins has a preliminary hearing slated for 9:15 a.m. November 11 at the Magoffin County Justice Center.
