Several arrests have been made this week by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department for various offenses, including drugs, probation violation and a warrant of arrest on indictment.

According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, a Somerset man was arrested on Thursday after an investigation by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Division.

Stephen Russell Flynn, 28, 1008 Richland Drive, Somerset, was arrested after the investigation found he had been selling Oxycontin. During the investigation, detectives purchased Oxycontin from him.

When a search warrant was executed at Flynn’s Richland Drive apartment, detectives found paraphernalia used to ingest illegal drugs.

Flynn was charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance first offense, a class C felony, and was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.

The investigation is continuing by the Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Division.

On Wednesday, three Pulaski County residents were arrested after an investigation by the Narcotics Division into illegal drug activity on Dead Ox Hollow Road.

Arrested were Carl D. Terry, 54, 405 Dead Ox Hollow Road, Burnside; Virginia L. New, 27, 118 Economy Inn, Somerset, Ky.; and Michael D. Fisher, 29, 603 Bourne Ave., Somerset.

The arrest came after an investigation resulted in a search of 405 Dead Ox Hollow Road, where the resident, Terry, was in possession of Oxycontin. Terry was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

During the investigation, deputies stopped a 1995 GMC on Dead Hollow Road. The investigation related to the traffic stop then resulted in New and Fisher being arrested on drug charges.

New was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, second-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of prescription drugs not in a proper container. New was in possession of Hydrocodone and Morphine pills.

Fischer was charged with possession of prescription drugs not in proper container (Xanax).
