PRESTONSBURG — Two Johnson County men remain in jail, after allegedly breaking in to a cabin at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park.

The Prestonsburg Police Department was called to the park, after employees reported that two men had broken in to cabin 406 and stayed the night there without paying. The men were reportedly seen leaving the cabin and headed down a dead-end road, when police were called.

Officers arriving on the scene found Danny Parker, 25, of Paintsville, and Christopher Skeens, 31, of Leander, still on the dead-end road. When they were stopped and questioned about their stay in the cabin, both men reportedly told police they thought they had permission.

While searching their vehicle, police allegedly found a black notepad container with three types of pills inside, as well as a box of Suboxone strips.

Parker and Skeens were arrested on charges of third-degree burglary, theft of services, second-degree possession of a controlled substance, and prescription not in original container. Parker, the driver, was additionally charged with no driver’s license, failure to produce insurance, and no registration receipt.

Both men were lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center, under $5,000 cash bonds. They will be in court Aug. 11 for a preliminary hearing.
