On February 5 and 6th, 2014 the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, the Third Judicial Drug Task Force and the Black Rock Police Department arrested Karrie Ward (35) of Powhatan, Jason Holmes (30) of Walnut Ridge, Ronnie Moore Jr. (37) of Powhatan and Jack Hampton (67) of Black Rock on charges of delivery of a controlled substance (Rx Drugs).
The arrests stem from several months of undercover surveillance and undercover informants purchasing Rx drugs from the subjects. The information gathered was presented to a judge and a warrant was issued for each subject. The Rx drugs included morphine, Xanax and valium.
All the subjects were placed under arrest without incident and transported to the Lawrence County Jail to await bond hearings.
