Two area residents have recently been arrested by the Middlesboro Police Department on drug charges.
Latonya Lagaye Farrow, 22, and Brett Matthew Willams, 27, both of Middlesboro, were arrested for drug possession.
Farrow was arrested on two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance. During a search following a shoplifting arrest of Farrow, Middlesboro police officers found a glass crack pipe containing black residue in her back pocket, according to the arrest citation. During an alleged field test, the residue tested positive for cocaine.
Farrow was also arrested for drug paraphernalia for the alleged crack pipe.
After Farrow was booked, officers at the detention center found a small bag with a white powder in her sock, according to the arrest citation. After a test was performed, the substance was determined to be methamphetamine.
Williams was arrested on the charge of second- and third-degree possession of a controlled substance. Police were dispatched to a residence in Hinks Heights to resolve a dispute between Williams and a female subject.
Upon arrival, Williams was wanted on a bench warrant which had been issued for his arrest. According to the arrest citation, a search took place where officers from the MPD allegedly found a white pill marked M363 and two blue pills marked G3721 inside a Marlboro cigarette pack.
The pills were determined to be hydrocodone and Xanax.
