White Powdery Substance Results in Medical Check Outs

At approximately 11:07 p.m. Monday, a Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy arrived at the Boone County Jail with 34-year-old Kevin Lampley of Indianapolis. He had been arrested on the charge of Driving While Suspended Prior.

During the jail intake process, Lampley was escorted to the jail body scanner, where he was scanned for hidden contraband, illegal substances, and weapons. During the scan, officers observed an unidentified object within Lampley’s pants. Officers continued the changeover process by escorting Lampley into the changeout area.

Once inside, officers observed Lampley retrieve two clear baggies, containing a white powdery substance, from within his pants, and place said items in his mouth. Officers immediately went to detain Lampley in effort to retrieve the items. Lampley proceeded by resisting the officers and spitting the unknown substance in the officer’s faces. Lampley was safely detained, and medics were called to the jail to complete a medical check out on Lampley and three Boone
County Sheriff’s Office employees.

Lampley and the three Boone County Sheriff’s Office employees were seen at a local medical facility due to being exposed to the substance in question. The white powdery substance was field tested and tested positive as cocaine.

This incident is still under investigation.
