Paroled drug offender charged again

Laura Muncy
Police responding to reports of drug activity in Pike County seized marijuana and drug paraphernalia late last week. Officials with the Pike County Sheriff’s Office say, the department, along with officers with Kentucky Probation and Parole, executed a search of the residence of 31-year-old Laura Muncy, of Huddy on Friday. Pike County Sheriff Rodney Scott said with the assistance of a drug dog, officers found a quantity of marijuana and other items.

Muncy, who was on probation for a 2015 drug case, was charged with trafficking in marijuana, less than 8 ounces, and second-degree possession of a controlled substance. She remains lodged in the Pike County Detention Center, and is being held on a $5,000, or 10 percent bond.
