A Whitco couple was arrested on drug charges after allegedly being caught having sex in a car in the Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital parking lot.
Whitesburg Police Officer Jordon Clemons on May 12 charged Jennifer Patricia Brown, 30, and her husband, Jason M. Brown, 36, each with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and possession of cocaine.
Jason Brown was also charged with second-degree possession of a controlled substance in connection with three pills and a pill bottle that did not belong to him that he allegedly had in his pocket, and a needle under his seat. Jennifer Brown was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with a needle under her seat. The two were arrested about 2:25 a.m.
According to the citation, District 2 Constable John Amburgey, who works as a security guard at Whitesburg ARH, reported a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot. When Clemons arrived, he said he found the couple engaged in “sexual acts” in the car, and the two gave consent to search the vehicle. Clemons said Jennifer Brown informed him there was a needle loaded with cocaine under her seat.
After being taken to the Letcher County Jail, Jennifer Brown was also charged with first-degree promoting contraband. Deputy Jailer Samantha Gordon said in a citation that she found three white pills in Jennifer Brown’s sock during a strip search.
