A Floyd County grand jury recently indicted a couple accused of possessing drugs and counterfeit bills.
The grand jury issued indictments against Landon Frazier, 38, of McDowell, and Rhonda Lynn Frazier, 38, of Prestonsburg, charging each of them with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a forged instrument and possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.
They were arrested at the Alpike Motel on April 1, 2018, by the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department after Deputy Justin Szymschack attempted to serve a warrant on Landon Frazier.
In the motel room, Szymchack reported that he discovered a clear plastic bag containing what appeared to be methamphetamine, a glass pipe and a “bag full of counterfeit dollar bills.”
Szymchack reported finding an envelope in the room with Rhonda Frazier’s address that contained $1,300 in counterfeit bills: one $100 bill, 40 $20 bills and 40 $10 bills. The grand jury indicted her for that allegation and also alleged in Landon Frazier’s indictment that he possessed three counterfeit $20 bills at the time of the arrest.
The forged instrument charge carries a potential penalty of between five and 10 years, while the drug possession charge carries a potential penalty of between one and five years.
Rhonda Frazier is scheduled to be arraigned in Floyd Circuit Court on Aug. 26. Landon Frazier had a hearing in Floyd Circuit Court on Monday.
