HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

The search for a wanted fugitive leads to the arrest of a Hopkins County woman.

Troopers say an investigation into Joseph Larkins led them to the White Plains home of Lauren Hawkins Sunday afternoon on Trabue Road. They said Hawkins allowed them inside to search for Larkins, but instead of finding the wanted fugitive, they found drugs and drug related items.

Hawkins is being charged for possession of marijuana, buying and possessing drug paraphernalia and trafficking in a controlled substance (meth).

She is currently being held at the Hopkins County Detention Center.
