Five Indicted After Latonia Car Dealership Raided

The Kenton County Grand Jury returned indictments this week against five people after a Latonia car dealership was raided earlier this year.

Covington Police targeted Elite Auto Sales in January where investigators allegedly confiscated drugs and weapons and towed away some of the vehicles on the lot after a day-long search of the property.

Garin Luken, 36, was indicted on charges of complicity to first degree trafficking less than 4 grams of cocaine (three counts), complicity to first degree trafficking of less than 10 dosage units of oxycodone, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, complicity to receiving stolen property, and first degree persistent felony offender. He has a lengthy criminal record in Kenton County and is currently behind bars on $10,000 bond.

Rebecca Luken, 46, was indicted on charges of complicity to first degree trafficking less than 4 grams of cocaine (2 counts), and complicity to receiving stolen property (a firearm). Luken remains jailed on $5,000 bond.

Jonathan Mains, 44, was released from the Kenton County Detention Center on $2,500 bond the day after the arrests. He was indicted this week on a charge of first degree trafficking of less than 10 dosage units of oxycodone. 

Norman Landrum, 65, is behind bars on $5,000 bond and was indicted on a charge of first degree trafficking of less than 10 dosage units of oxycodone. He has a lengthy arrest history in Kenton County.

Ray Johnson, 35, was not arrested with the others but was indicted this week on a charge of complicity to first degree trafficking less than 4 grams of cocaine.

All five are listed as co-defendants in the case.
