Man sentenced for selling pills to State Troopers

FAYETTEVILLE – A man is sentenced Monday for his involvement in selling drugs to the Oak Hill State Police.

Danny Lee Kincaid, 61, was granted probation for 24 months before Judge Paul Blake, Jr. in Fayette County Circuit Court.

Kincaid was arrested after police say he and his co-defendant, John Frederick Jarrell, 36, called the wrong number and asked a Trooper if he wanted to buy drugs. After an undercover buy, uniformed officers executed a search warrant and found hydrocodone and money.

Jarrell appeared in court this morning but his sentencing was rescheduled on account of his positive test for alcohol.

Prosecuting attorney Larry Harrah says he is having a hard time understanding how you can sell pills to a police officer who identified himself on the phone.

“This is kind of an unusual situation - one of the most unusual cases I’ve had since I’ve been with the prosecuting attorney's office.”

Kincaid will be subject to random pill counts while on probation.

Jarrell's bond was revoked and he is being held in Southern Regional Jail.
