Jailer fired for selling pills to inmates
(WOUB) - A Boyd County, Ky. deputy jailer is facing drug charges after allegedly purchasing prescription pills that he
planned to sell to inmates in the detention center.

Loval Marshall, of Ashland, allegedly met with an informant at a local gas station, where he bought 13 Roxycodone pills.

Marshall then led police on a slow-speed chase before throwing the pills out the window.

The pills were recovered and the
pill bottle was found in Marshall's car.

Marshall, who had worked at the jail for six years, told police he'd supplied drugs for inmates on other occasions.

He was immediately fired from his job.
