Pine Creek woman is held in meth case here

Police arrested a Pine Creek woman for methamphetamine possession and are looking for a man who Letcher County Sheriff Mickey Stines said jumped out a window when he and a deputy arrived.

Deputy Sheriff Josh Pease wrote in a citation that he and Stines went to a home at 352 Pine Creek, looking for a vehicle that had been reported as stolen, and where April Baker, 39, and Charles Osborne Jr., 23, of Eolia were staying.

When the two asked about Osborne, Baker told them he was inside the residence. According to the citation, when officers entered the bedroom, Osborne jumped out the window and ran into the woods.

Stines said a meth pipe, and a needle loaded with methamphetamines ready to inject were laying on the bed. Pease arrested Baker and charged her with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia. They also seized $352 in cash, and three small plastic bags of a substance thought to be methamphetamine.

Osborne was not apprehended.

The car that had been reported stolen was at a repair shop at Eolia, but Stines said the person who owned the garage said it was brought there for repairs and “his story matched up.” He was not charged.
