On Thursday afternoon, Campbell County Deputy John Minor was dispatched to a home on Wooldridge Pike at Jellico in reference to drugs being found inside of the home.

When Deputy Minor arrived, he made contact with Sarah Creekmore.  She stated her boyfriend, Nicholas Lambdin (in photo above), had brought a blue bag inside the house.  She also said that when she looked inside of the bag she found a lot of money, as well as a large amount of what she believed to be drugs.

Creekmore opened the bag and showed the deputy the contents.  Minor saw the cash, later adding up to $18,570.   He saw a large amount of a white crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine, along with several small plastic bags, and one folded dollar bill containing a crystal substance also thought to be methamphetamine.

Creekmore gave deputies permission to enter the home where they made contact with Lambdin.  He admitted that the cash belonged to him, and he had obtained it from a home in Kentucky, along with the white crystal substance.

A bond is yet to be set for the 26-year old Lambdin.  This was his first booking into the Campbell County Jail.  Lambdin’s address is also listed as Wooldridge Pike – Jellico.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/30/2018-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE CCSD)
