The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office and Frankfort Police, have continued the fight to reduce opioid abuse in Clinton County and those that maintain or promote its unlawful use.
Prosecutor Sommer has charged Pamela Ray with Maintaining a Common Nuisance, a Level 6 Felony, due to the number of overdoses at her property in Frankfort. A recent investigation into trafficking at the Clinton county Jail involving Ms. Ray’s son, led to the arrest of Pamela Ray when she attempted to provide narcotics to her son who was incarcerated at the Clinton County Jail.
An investigation also showed that there have been at least four overdoses at her residence that required emergency intervention using Narcan to reverse the side effects. Also during several search warrants of the property, investigators have discovered used syringes, scales, white residue, possible methamphetamine, fentanyl, heroin and unauthorized prescription pills.
Sheriff Kelly and Prosecutor Sommer both agree that we will take on one location at a time, one person at a time to rid the county of illicit narcotics and arrest those responsible for the poison in our community. Sheriff Kelly commends all agencies involved for their diligence on this matter and reminds citizens if they see something, say something.
