A man arrested nearly two years on methamphetamine charges has been removed from the Letcher County Drug Court program and returned to jail.
Brian Paul Broome, 41, of Jenkins, was among four people arrested on methamphetamine charges on March 1, 2018, in Jenkins during a traffic stop. The four were believed to be connected with a large methamphetamine bust at Bottom Fork that was carried out by the Letcher County Sheriff ’s Department about two weeks later.
Broome pleaded guilty to complicity to first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and complicity to first-degree possession of a controlled substance, was given a five-year pretrial diversion and placed in drug court.
According to court documents, Broome violated his diversion agreement, and is scheduled to be sentenced today in the 2018 case.
