Logan County Sheriff Sonya Dingess Porter has announced that her department has made another drug bust in Logan County.

Logan County Deputy Sheriffs were dispatched by Logan County 911 Sunday evening, June 30, regarding a female who stated that her husband had been shot in Cora, which is in the Logan Heights area.

Deputies Lyall and Carter responded and found the female caller, identified as Geena Robinette, at the Rich Gas Station. After speaking with her, deputies were told that her husband, Kenneth Robinette, and Larry Bradford were in a house at Cora, when she had heard a gunshot and ran to the gas station to call 911.

Deputies then went to the house in Cora and found Mr. Robinette and Bradford standing in a yard. Deputies quickly found that Mrs. Robinette’s story was not true.

During the deputies investigation they had performed a search on the two men and found Mr. Robinette to have a brown prescription bottle with several crack cocaine rocks and $512 in U.S. currency in his possession. Mr. Robinette, 53, of Baisden, was placed under arrest for possession with the intent to deliver crack cocaine.

Mr. Robinette is currently incarcerated at the Southwestern Regional Jail and his bond is set at $25,000.

It was not disclosed if charges will be filed against Mrs. Robinette for false reporting of an emergency.
