Parking in the Wrong Driveway Leads to Drug Arrest, False ID Charge


A Somerset woman was arrested early Sunday morning, after authorities were called about a suspicious vehicle being parked in a driveway.

According to the citation, a Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy was called to a London residence to investigate a “suspicious vehicle” parked in a concerned homeowner’s driveway. When police arrived, they found a green SUV with two subjects inside.

Reportedly, 51-year-old Jonette Fitzpatrick gave the arresting officer a false information, including a name, date of birth, and social security number. Fitzpatirck’s identification was later found in the vehicle, which determined that she was wanted by Pulaski County authorities in regards to an outstanding warrant.

Upon further investigation, the deputy allegedly located three hypodermic needles, one of which was uncapped.

Fitzpatrick was arrested and charged with giving an officer false identifying information and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, she was charged on a Pulaski Circuit Court indictment for five charges of criminal possession of a forged instrument – second degree.

Fitzpatrick was lodged in the Laurel County correctional center.
