Police team up to make motel drug bust

Three people are facing several drug charges and charges of endangering a baby. Louisa Police say they teamed up with Lawrence County deputies to search a room at the Super 8 Motel in Louisa for possible drug activity. After searching Thursday, police arrested Bryan K. Thompson, 43 of Louisa, Zandol Parrigan, 40 of Prestonsburg, and Heather Adkins, 27 of Louisa.

Thompson and Parrigan face charges of intent to traffic a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and prescription drugs in an improper container. Adkins faces charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor due to having her 14-month-old child in the room where drug activity occurred.

Adkins was cited and released, but Thompson and Parrigan are now at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center. The child is with the Division of Protection and Permanency. Police are still investigating.
