Organized crime, drug charges among indictments

April 3, 2013 —     A Carter County grand jury handed down five indictments March 22.

    Jacob Seagraves, 22, and Heather M. Krause- Brown, 27, both of Grayson, and James Canty, IV, 27, of Detroit, Mich., were indicted on one count of engaging in organized crime, a Class B felony, and  one count of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, heroin, a Class D felony.  

    The three were arrested Jan. 11 when a search warrant was served on the residence where they were staying.

    At that time, the three were charged with trafficking in a controlled substance and engaging in organized crime.

    Nearly two months later, on March 2, Grayson police were called back to the same residence by a maintenance worker.

    The residence had been empty since the three were arrested in January. While cleaning the mobile home for a new renter, the man found a bag of what he believed to be drugs in the refrigerator.

    Grayson police said the substance was heroin which led to the possession charges. The case was bound over to the grand jury March 18.  

    Also indicted were:

     Dustin L. Cox, 30, of Carter County, on one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, a Class B felony.  

    James Conn, of Olive Hill, on one count of receiving stolen property, a 2008 Jeep of a value greater than $10,000, a Class C felony.  

    The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
