Two Whitley City women were arrested in Huntsville last week after a drug investigation by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Keith Hawkins’ arrest warrant states the officer and Drug Agent Kris Lewallen went to an apartment complex to follow up on complaints of reported drug trafficking at a residence.
Rosa L. Sumler, 37, and Wilda D. Ross, 50, of Whitley City were reportedly in the parking lot and told the officers they were there to visit Angela K. Strunk, 43, of Huntsville, and had brought her stomach pills. After talking to Strunk, the woman admitted to knowing the women, but couldn’t state their names.
Strunk also confessed the Kentucky women were bringing drugs to her and she had purchased 10 morphine tablets. The pills were recovered, along with several other drug paraphernalia from her apartment.
Sumler, who had a prescription for morphine that had been filled that day, was charged with possession of a schedule II controlled substance for resale. Ross was found to have several pills on her possession, as well as various other narcotics in the vehicle. Ross was charged with possession of a schedule II controlled substance, possession of a legend drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Strunk was charged with possession of morphine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
