Jay Lay Jr., 54, 232 Wooldridge Lane, Jellico, was spotted by Jellico Police Chief Chris Anderson at a 5th street gas station on Halloween. He was reportedly arrested by Det. Sgt. Jeff Ivey.

Lay was charged with three counts of sale of a schedule II drug and three counts of delivery of a schedule II drug. His bond was set at $100,000.

Lay’s daughter, Angela Lay-Broyles, 25, was arrested after police allegedly saw her at the Trunk or Treat event in downtown Jellico. K9 officer Joe Hopson allegedly arrested Lay-Broyles. She was charged from two counts of sale and two counts of delivery of a schedule II drug, sale and delivery of a schedule VI drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bond was also set at $100,000.

The indictment comes after a five-month investigation by members of the Jellico Police Department.
