From staff reports

Thomas D. Stokley, 53, and Maggie N. Blankenship, 32, of 334 Ethel Drive, were arrested May 30 for trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and trafficking in a controlled substance (fentanyl derivatives), according to a citation released by the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies executed a search warrant where both Blankenship and Stokley were found inside the residence in the presence of illicit narcotics which were in a quantity exceeding personal use.
In the proximity of the products were several packaging supplies to make narcotics ready for transport, as well as scales to weigh the narcotics, according to the citation.
Blankenship’s ID and prescription pill bottle with her name on it were located in the same room as the narcotics. When asked where her primary residence was, Blankenship allegedly told officers the above listed address since she had been staying there for a few months.
Stokley was questioned in regards to a safe located within the residence. He allegedly linked his keys to the safe, thus linking ownership.
Both Stokley and Blankenship were arrested and transported to the Jessamine County Detention Center, according to the citation.
