Laurel Deputy Shawn Jackson arrested two individuals at the Pilot Travel Center off West Cumberland Gap Parkway early Saturday morning.

The first arrest came after deputies observed a woman stumbling around, running into shelves, and knocking items into the floor. The woman admitted to snorting a line of ice and also snorting a Klonopin.

During the arrest, Deputy Jackson found over $190 worth of items were concealed that the woman apparently intended to shoplift from the store. Jessica Karr, 29, of Corbin, was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking, shoplifting, public intoxication – controlled substances, and disorderly conduct.
