Police are seeking a 26-year-old man missing since Tuesday, according to the Barbourville Police Department.

Jonathan R. Foley was last seen by his parents, who reported him missing on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Foley borrowed his father’s cell phone and said he would return shortly. Several hours passed and his family began to try to locate him. They tried to call the cell phone, but the phone appears to have been turned off or has no service.

Foley’s truck was found Wednesday by the man’s father.

Police are following leads and talking to witnesses as they continue their search.

Assisting in the investigation are Chief Mike Broughton, Sgt. Kenny Williamson, Patrolman Pat Clouse and detectives Brian Senters and Steve Owens.

London couple arrested for theft by unlawful taking

A man and his girlfriend were arrested Wednesday after receiving a complaint that a man had stolen a large amount of coin change from his uncle’s home, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Joseph E. White, of Lily Road, and Tanya Hurley, of Feltner Street, both 35, were arrested at 6:40 p.m. on Parker Street in London.

Deputies determined the man and his girlfriend went to a business and cashed in the stolen change, receiving $965.51. Deputies report upon White’s arrest, they discovered $444 on him as well as five prescription pills. Charged with theft by unlawful taking, White was also charged on an outstanding Laurel County bench warrant for flagrant non-support and also had four outstanding Whitley County bench warrants. Hurley was also charged with theft by unlawful taking. Both were jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility.

Two arrested on drug charges

Two men were arrested Thursday at a home where officers found meth labs, digital scales and pseudoephedrine, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Ernest L. Goforth, 41, of Lily, and Brian G. Harris, 31, of McKee, were arrested about 10:30 a.m. by Detective Jason Back at a home located seven miles south of London.

Officers found four inactive one-step meth labs and other items associated with the manufacture of the drug.

Goforth was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Root said Goforth reportedly transferred about a gram of methamphetamine to a third party.

Harris was charged with possession of a controlled substance since he had about a gram of methamphetamine.

Both men were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Other deputies involved in the investigation and arrests were Detective Brad Mitchell, Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Lt. Rodney Van Zant, Sgt. Chuck Johnson and deputies Brett Reeves, James Sizemore and John Inman.

Man arrested for domestic violence

A man who reportedly hoped to get police to shoot him was arrested Tuesday for domestic violence, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Kalvin R. Young, 37, of Corbin, was arrested after deputies Greg Turner, Steve Hoskins and Robbie Grimes responded after 7 p.m. to a domestic violence complaint on American Greeting Card Road. The wife said her husband had struck her, was drinking vodka and was out of control.

When deputies arrived, they learned Young was armed with a pistol and had said he was going to make police shoot him.

Young walked out of an apartment carrying something in his hands, then ran back inside the apartment. After deputies ordered him to come out, Young came outside carrying a holster.

A handgun was found inside the apartment behind a couch.

Deputies found red marks on Young’s wife’s face and determined he had struck her.

Young was charged with fourth-degree assault and public intoxication-controlled substances. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Corbin man arrested for trespassing

A Corbin man was arrested Wednesday after he caused a disturbance at his girlfriend’s mother’s home, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Earlier that day, Root said Steven L. Gross, 23, had been involved in a domestic violence complaint. Gross, who was told by the mother not to return, left before deputies arrived.

Deputy Robbie Grimes responded to the second complaint and found Gross on the property.

Gross was arrested and charged with second-degree criminal trespass. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Deputies Greg Turner and Steve Hoskins assisted.
