The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department made four arrests involving possession of illegal drugs, March 1 and March 3, resulting in four arrests and the recovery of 1.76 pounds of cocaine.


Sheriff Ryan Gosser was able to seize 1.76 pounds of cocaine with a street value of $56,000. Gosser said the ongoing investigation prevents more information from being released.

Chief Deputy Rob Miller said the department received a phone call about a person in the parking of the Dollar Tree store located at 2529 Hwy. 227 exhibiting signs of public intoxication. Johnathan Proctor, 26, of Carrollton, was charged with public intoxication of a controlled substance (excluding alcohol) and possession of a controlled substance first degree and first offense (methamphetamine). He also faces charges of contempt of court libel/slander, resistance to order and two counts of failure to appear. Officer Matt Walls was the arresting officer.

Synjen Carter, 23, of Carrollton was charged with possession of a controlled substance (heroin) first degree and a third or great offense, possession of controlled substance, a first degree, substance unknown and buy/possess drug paraphernalia on March 1. He was found with 1.6 grams of heroin in his possession. Carter was also found to have an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in Franklin County court.

Carey Capel, 52, of Bedford was a passenger in vehicle stopped because of expired tags. Detective Clint Overstreet was performing routine checks and found Capel to be in possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and charged with possession, first degree and first offense. Capel was also charged with possession of marijuana. Miller said he gave Overstreet false identifying information and once they had his proper identity, Capel was found to have outstanding warrants from Jefferson County, Ky. for second degree escape and failure to appear.

Overstreet responded to a call that someone was displaying conditions of being under the influence in the Carrollton Wal-Mart parking lot the evening of March 2. He found Rodney Rabourn, 33, of Campbellsburg to be under the influence of a controlled substance. Rabourn was charged with possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine) first degree and second offense and also with buy/possess drug paraphernalia.

All were detained at the Carroll County Detention Center.

Ghent burglaries

Miller said the department has made some headway on the burglaries in Ghent. He said two or three juveniles had been arrested and some property had been returned to the original owners. No other burglaries have been reported in the past two weeks. Miller said those living in the area, as well as everywhere else in the county, need to lock the doors to their homes and vehicles.
