Edmonson Voice Report:
Two individuals were arrested on meth and other charges this morning after law enforcement responded to a call of passed out individuals in a vehicle, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff's Office said they responded to Alford Road in Brownsville around 9AM on Wednesday, June 9th after receiving a call that a male and female were passed out in a vehicle. Law enforcement stated that when they arrived on scene, they located a male, identified as Phildon D. Wooden, (39) of Big Clifty, and a female, identified as Katrina S. Holderman, (38) of Caneyville in the vehicle, along with drug paraphernalia commonly used for smoking methamphetamine lying in plain view.
Officials said that Wooden was asked to step out of the vehicle, at which point he began reaching inside his pockets. A deputy reportedly instructed him to stop, then conducted an exterior frisk of his pockets, feeling what he knew to be a syringe. The deputy asked Wooden if the syringe was capped and warned him that he would be charged with wanton endangerment if it was not; Wooden stated that it was capped, according to the Sheriff's Office. The deputy stated that when he removed the syringe, he found it to be uncapped, with the end of the needle snapped off, and the plunger still pulled back with residue in the syringe.
In addition, the other subject Holderman, was asked to exit the vehicle and a probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted, which revealed not only a bag of suspected methamphetamine, but also numerous forms of drug paraphernalia and cash. Once Holderman was placed under arrest, she reportedly asked the deputy if medication could be retrieved from her vehicle, which was parked further up the driveway of the same location. When doing so, the deputy reportedly saw additional drug paraphernalia lying in plain view, along with more cash.
