Cabinet of Family Services Employee Arrested for Possession of Controlled Substance and Public Intoxication
Darren Doyle, story:
A state employee has been arrested for public intoxication of meth and other charges according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
In a released statement, the Sheriff's Office said they responded to the parking lot on October 10, 2018 of the Cabinet of Family Services on a call of a possible intoxicated employee. While deputies were on their way to the call, they said they received another tip that the suspect was possibly passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle in the parking lot.
Deputies said once they arrived, they found Stacy Collins (35), of Bowling Green, who admitted to snorting meth earlier in the day.
According to the statement, Collins produced a small baggie that she said was meth. Deputies also found a cellophane wrapper in the floorboard of Collins’ vehicle and a rolled-up five-dollar bill, both with drug residue, believed to be methamphetamine.
Stacy Collins was arrested for Public Intoxication-controlled substance and Possession of Controlled Substance, 1st degree, 1st offense; she was lodged in Hart County Jail where she is being held on a $5,000 bond.
“People who hold positions of trust, like at the Cabinet of Family Services, should be held to a higher standard," said Sheriff Shane Doyle, "but regardless of the position or place of employment, the Sheriff’s Office will always enforce the law.”
