After a call was received at the Kentucky State Police (KSP) 911 Center on Sunday, a Bledsoe couple was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center.
Nelson Brock, 35, was arrested by Harlan County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Bailey, and charged with public intoxication controlled substance, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (cocaine). His bond was set at $5,000 full cash.
Sara Brock, 33, was arrested by Harlan County Sheriff’s Deputy Dee Dee Ulbrich and charged with public intoxication controlled substance and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (drug unspecified). Her bond was set at $5,000 at 10 percent.
“The KSP 911 Center dispatched the sheriff’s office to 631 Bigalow Road in Bledsoe saying a call had been received stating Sara Brock’s husband’s girlfriend was outside her residence trying to get her to come out so she could kill her,” said Bailey. “Upon arrival to the scene at 5:19 p.m., Nelson Brock answered the door and said he had not called the police. He said he and his wife were the only people in the home at that time. I informed him we were going to have to come in to check things out before leaving. When asked where his wife was he said he didn’t know.”
Bailey said at this time he heard a female screaming saying she was in the home. He said upon investigation, he found a female, later identified as Sara Brock, armed with a gun.
“She said her husband, Nelson Brock, was trying to kill her and that he was in the possession of a gun,” said Bailey. “When Mr. Brock was searched he was found to be in possession of a knife and drug paraphernalia. He said his gun was in the kitchen cabinet. All weapons were secured. While searching the kitchen cabinets multiple pill bottles without labels were found. Both subjects appeared to be under the influence and both admitted to snorting pills that day. Drug paraphernalia was found in plain view in the kitchen and some suspected cocaine was found in the living room floor in plain view. Mrs. Brock was also found to be in possession of some controlled substance. Both were lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center.”
Deputy Matt Cope assisted Bailey and Ulbrich. This case remains under investigation.
