Four face drug charges

Staff report

An investigation into the sale of prescription medication in Paducah ultimately resulted in charges against four people.

The McCracken County Sheriff's Department reported that undercover detectives purchased what appeared to be morphine Thursday from Jonathan Box, 36, and Kaley Leek, 25, both of Paducah. Then the detectives purchased Fentanyl patches from the two on Friday. Both were then arrested at a Cairo Road gas station. 

During the investigation, detectives learned of a possible source for the Fentanyl patches on Strathnoor Boulevard in Paducah, according to the news release. Arrested there were William Simons, 44, and William Hoskins, 43. Also found was marijuana and a six-year-old child who was present during the drug transactions. Hoskins was found to have an active warrant for his arrest in an unrelated matter.

Box, Leek, Hoskins and Simons were taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.

Box was charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. Leek was charged with two counts of facilitation to trafficking in a controlled substance. Hoskins was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and wanton endangerment. Simons was arrested for trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and wanton endangerment.
