A pile of rocks stopped Stacy Collen Martin from going off a hill. Last Wednesday, Campbell County Deputy John Minor found Martin asleep in the driver’s seat of a black Jeep. He was answering a call about an accident at 1417 South Highway 25W where a vehicle had gone over a bank being stopped by a pile of rocks.
When Minor attempted to speak with the woman, later identified as Martin, he notice she seemed impaired, according to the report. She allegedly told Minor she was there to see her friend Ernie, but no one by that name lived at the residence. When Martin got out of the vehicle, she was allegedly unsteady on her feet. After a warrant check, it was discovered she had outstanding warrants and was unable to provide proof of registration or insurance at the scene. At this point, Martin allegedly told Minor she had a syringe in her pocket that contained meth. During a search at the jail, two additional syringes were found in her bra.
