MPD arrest 3 on drug charges

Morehead Police responded to two separate calls at Wal-Mart on June 7 and June 3 that resulted in three arrests.

“We got a couple days worth of shoplifting calls out at Wal-Mart and they both had all kinds of drugs on them,” Morehead Police Chief Mike Adams said.

Police received a call June 7 at 4:20 p.m. about possible shoplifting. When they arrived at the scene they did not have enough information to arrest the woman for shoplifting.

“We were able to charge Rhonda Kitchen of Morehead with public intoxication, as well as two counts of possession of a controlled substance 3rd degree and possession of a controlled substance 2nd degree,” Adams said.

Kitchen, 36, also was charged with prescription drugs not in the proper container.

In a separate incident at Wal-Mart, police responded to a call June 3 at 12:36 p.m. Two females and one male were allegedly caught shoplifting. One female got away. Patrolman James Sergent arrested Heather Rister, 22, of Morehead and Israel Binion, 34, of Olive Hill.

Rister was charged with theft by unlawful taking under $300, possession of a controlled substance 3rd degree, and prescription drugs not in the proper container.

Binion was charged with theft by unlawful taking under $300.

Lt. David Sexton located the second female shortly after. Candace Flannery, 23, of Morehead, was charged with receiving stolen property under $300, possession of a controlled substance 2nd degree, possession of a controlled substance 3rd degree and prescription drugs not in the proper container.

Kitchen was transported to the Carter County Detention Center, from where she was released on Monday, June 8 on a $500 cash bond.

Rister also was taken to the Carter County Detention Center where she remains under a $5,000 cash bond.

Binion was transported to the Rowan County Detention Center where he is lodged under a $500 unsecured bond.
