Four indicted on drug charges

Jan. 23, 2013 —     A Carter County Grand Jury indicted four people Jan. 4 on drug related charges.  

    The indictments were handed down when the grand jury heard testimony from an Attorney General investigator.

    Indicted were:

    Justin Evans, 24, of Grayson, was indicted on one count of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, a Class C felony.  Evans allegedly sold 10 dosage units of oxycodone, a Schedule II narcotic.

    Charles E. Cooley, 35, of Olive Hill, was indicted on one count of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, a Class D. felony.  Cooley allegedly sold two dosage units of oxycodone, a Schedule II narcotic.

    Wendell Taylor, 34, of Columbus, Ohio, was indicted on one count of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, a Class D. felony.  Taylor allegedly sold 312 mg of heroin, a Scheduled II controlled substance.
