Officers say a concerned neighbor called them to a home yesterday on eastern pine.

That's in the Gorman Hollow area of Hazard.


We spoke with the mother of the baby in jail.

Police got an anonymous call from someone who said they could smell marijuana coming from the home.

Hazard Police say when they got there, they found 25 individually wrapped bags of marijuana and a two month old son ... Belonging to 21-year-old Justin Wallace and 21-year-old Carrie Jent.

Carrie Jent says she knew there were drugs in her home ... where she was raising her two-month old son.

“My boyfriend did have some marijuana,” Jens says.

Police Chief Ronnie Bryant says,“Upon the officers arrival, someone answered the door and they could smell marijuana and they did see a two month old child in the residence.”

Police arrested Jent, her boyfriend Justin Wallace and another man.

Jent says,“They took me for wanton endangerment of my baby and took me for tampering with evidence.”

Wallace is charged Trafficking Drugs near a school.

Chief Bryant says no child should be subjected to any type of drugs.

“We're going to do everything as law enforcement officers to see that it doesn't happen,” Bryant says.

Jent says she never meant to harm her child.

“I love him,” Jent says.“He is so precious and I don't feel like I really do anything wrong if I thought it was going to hurt him or anything was going to done with him or I would've never did it.”

“If children are involved in the atmosphere where the drug activity is going on, we don't have any sympathy for the drug traffickers to begin with,” Bryant says.

Jent says no one smoked marijuana near her baby boy.

“He was never around the smoke,” Jent says.“I always took him somewhere so he was not around whenever he was smoking.”

Family members are now caring for the infant.

Both Wallace and jent are being held at the Kentucky River Regional Jail. 24-year-old Teddy Combs is charged with drug possession.

Another sad case of an innocent child neglected, abused, and/or endangered by illegal drug use. How long can we, as a society, survive if we don't get trash like this off the streets and locked up for good?

Thanks to the unnamed heroic neighbor who called in the complaint. Also thanks to Hazard P. D. for another job well-done.

Hopefully the courts will do as good a job as Chief Bryant and his men did, and these specimens of human excrement will have a good long time to sit in jail and ponder the error of their ways.

i totally agree. my elderly aunt lives in gorman hollow very close to where i heard the people who were busted live. im so glad that trash has been arrested and it sickens me to think that people like that were living around my aunt and raising a baby in that environment. people like that dont seem to care about anyone but themselves. disgusting!!!

Trafficking within 1000 yards of a school,
if you sell dope anywhere in the city you are within a 1000 yards of a school.
Now just shut up, they were selling and smoking dope around a two month old BABY. If they don't care about their own baby do you think they would think twice about hurting you or yours. Think about it..... what is the world coming to.....

1,000 yards is well over a half mile. Hazard High School would surely fall into a half mile circle from Gorman Hollow.

People like that make me sick. I hope that poor child is taken and adopted by a family that cares about it and will bring it up right.

I can't beleive that you and I actually agree on something 45!!! So...Did the Mom not think her baby was in danger? That's what her statement implies. What Idiots! I hope the baby does find placement with a caring family. These people don't deserve the joy of nurturing a child.

Yes, it is pleasent to be on the same side of an issue with you for once. Even when we aren't though I respect your opinion.

People like this never cease to amaze me. What kind of a chance at a productive life could children have when they are brought up in homes like these?

So true. I can't believe that any mother would think it's okay to raise a baby around drugs. I read the interview she gave and she sounded utterly stupid. It's sad that people like that can have babies and put them in danger like that, but many good people who would make incredible parents can't even have one child. I pray that poor little baby gets a wonderful loving home, where it's parents can't even see it, and is never put in danger like that again.

I hope they never see the baby again and stay in jail for a good long time. People like that are nothing but human trash.

Don't tell me to shut up! I said they got what they deserved! I was just wondering about the school thing, I WAS NOT defending them! Try reading all of the posts!

Judging by your spelling, it looks like you might have smoked a little too much of something yourself.

Get a grip people, It's pot. It's weaker than the beer that is available everywhere. Have you ever seen anybody passed out in the floor with a joint hanging out of their mouth?
You all try to demonize marijuana but everybody knows that it is totally harmless. That baby's care or safety was in no way threatened and you all know it.
Grow up and get your hate in check. You make yourselves sound like backward ignorant fools!
