Jason WestWEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (10/18/17) — Kentucky State Police continue to unravel a web of alleged crimes that started as a routine death investigation last month.

Webster County middle school teacher, Jason A. West, 36 of Newburgh, Indiana, was charged Tuesday with complicity to trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Lucia C. Jenkins, who was previously charged with four counts of possessing child pornography Oct. 3, was also charged with 11 counts of complicity to trafficking in methamphetamine.

In addition, Providence Assistant Police Chief Alan King was arrested this week on official misconduct charges in connection to the Post 2 investigation.

KSP reported Monday that the police chief was having a sexual relationship with Jenkins.

Investigators said King failed to act on the knowledge of potential deviant sexual behavior in reference to Jenkins being that she was in a position of authority over students, nor did King investigate her allegations to him concerning her use of illegal narcotics.

The investigation began after KSP was called to assist the Webster County Coroner’s Office related to the Sept. 13 death of a 29-year-old man that resided with Jenkins. KSP indicated serving a search warrant on Jenkins’ cell phone that revealed “several photographs that depicted a minor in a sexual performance.”

The investigation is ongoing by Master Trooper William C. Braden II.
