Estill Deputy Sheriff Russell “Doc” Morris got a tip that a man and woman were “shooting up” outside of Arvin’s Apartments on Wisemantown Road.
When Morris arrived at the apartment he alleged observed the couple, Paula L. Voils, 29 and Roy Sturgill, 35 sitting in a black Chevrolet truck.
The report states that the door of the truck was open, but when the officer parked behind it, Sturgill closed the door.
“When I approached the passenger side door, I observed a spoon with something in it and a needle,” Morris stated on the report. “The female started licking the spoon and put something behind the seat. The male wouldn’t open the door.”
The report states Morris found a green pill bottle and two needles in the truck.
When Morris told Sturgill to exit the vehicle, the report states, he nearly fell and told Morris he had taken some Percoset that was prescribed by a doctor.
Both subjects were arrested and taken to the Estill County Jail. Sturgill was charged with public intoxication and tampering with physical evidence.
Voils was charged with first degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, drug unspecified, second degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, drug unspecified and tampering with physical evidence.
Bond was set at $1,000 for Voils and $2,500 for Sturgill.
