A Floyd County couple was arrested recently after allegedly reporting a false incident while under the influence of methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Eric D. Roberts II, 23, and Jan Sester, 18, both of Whispering Oaks Drive, Prestonsburg, were arrested Sunday afternoon at Lykins Creek in Pikeville. According to court documents, the couple had gone door-to-door in the area asking residents to contact 911 for them “because someone is ‘after them.’”

According to court documents, when Pikeville Police made contact with the couple, both Roberts and Sester had “pin point pupils and was speaking very fast,” and experienced difficulty standing still. Court documents said the couple told officers that “every car that passed while we spoke were people out to get them.”

Court documents said the couple told police they had been “hiding in tall grass for hours trying to avoid the people out to get them,” and that they had been using meth.

“Both subjects also advised me that they had been doing a ‘10 piece of meth’ in the days prior to my contact with them,” Pikeville Police Officer Tommy Fouts wrote in court documents.

Both Roberts and Sester were charged with public intoxication and falsely reporting an incident. They were lodged in the Pike County Detention Center and released the following day on their own recognizance.
