CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

B’ville woman arrested for public intoxication, wanton endangerment

Knox County Sheriff John Pickard said on Sunday Deputy Claude Hudson was dispatched to a residence on Waterson Street in Barbourville to investigate a complaint of a verbal domestic situation.

When he arrived he found Charlotte Davis, 23, a mother of three small children, outside holding her infant son.

Pickard said Hudson reported Davis stumbled toward the cruiser, and then fell into the cruiser with the child in her arms.

Hudson said Davis wanted to file a report on her live-in boyfriend for stealing her cell phone.

Hudson saw the other two children at the residence and arrested her for public intoxication and wanton endangerment for the children.

She was taken to the Knox County Detention Center, and was refused entry by the jailer.

Hudson then transported Davis to the Knox County Hospital emergency room for possible overdose. Davis was treated and returned back to jail, where she remains.

Pickard said Knox County Social Services was contacted in reference to the children being placed in a safe environment.

Man charged in burglary had other warrants

Sheriff John Pickard said that on Friday, Deputy Brian Hensley responded to 2134 KY 1527 in reference to a burglary.

Upon investigation Hensley found Carmon Yates, 36, of Gray, who was identified by the victims after allegedly entering their residence through the kitchen window.

Yates denied breaking into the residence, saying he had only been visiting. However, Yates allegedly admitted to Hensley that he stole several items from the victim’s home.

Pickard said Yates then stated to Hensley he had taken the items back and felt guilty for taking them, and had asked the victims not to call the police.

Yates was arrested and faces charges of second-degree burglary. Pickard said he also has two other Knox County warrants, as well as a warrant from Harrodsburg.

He remains jailed at the Knox County Detention Center.

Others arrested by the Knox County Sheriff’s Department and their charges include:

— Brian Jones, 31, of Flat Lick was arrested Wednesday on a bench warrant.

— Brenda Laws, 52, of Flat Lick, arrested Wednesday for alcohol intoxication and first-degree disorderly conduct.

— Johnny Carnes, 37, of Arjay, was arrested Wednesday for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs, failure to transfer motor vehicle, failure of owner to maintain required insurance, first offense, no registration receipt or plates.

— Jason Roundtree, 29, of Corbin, arrested Wednesday on a bench warrant.

Two juveniles arrested in cycle theft

Two male juvenile suspects, ages 17 and 15, were caught pushing a stolen motorcycle away from Tri-County Cycle Sales after smashing out a glass window Friday night to steal it, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Root said that deputies Shawn Boroviak and Mikey Ashurst were first dispatched to a robbery in progress, however, when they arrived they determined it was a burglary.

Root said the owner was able to catch the two suspects because they triggered a burglar alarm. When the business owner arrived at his store to respond to the alarm, he told deputies he saw the two juveniles pushing a motorcycle on Powers Lane — which had been stolen from his business.

Root said the business owner was able to detain the two suspects until deputies arrived.

Both suspects were from Corbin.

Deputies, along with Detective Billy Madden, conducted an investigation and determined the two juveniles had broken out a glass window with a large asphalt rock to gain entry to the business, and then pushed the cycle out through the broken window.

Both now face charges of third-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief.

They were court ordered to be transported to the Breathitt County Juvenile Detention Facility.

On Monday a detention hearing was held in Laurel Juvenile Court, and both subjects were ordered held until their next court date of May 21.

Kentucky State troopers assisted at the scene.

Damage to the broken window was estimated at more than $1,000, and the damage to the stolen motorcycle was estimated at more than $1,000.

Police seek shoplifting suspect

Williamsburg Police seek the public’s help in determining a suspect who allegedly stole several items from Walmart in Williamsburg.

Two computers and a large bag of dog food were carried out of the store.

If anyone has any information on this suspect please call the Williamsburg Police Department at 549-6087, or call dispatch at 549-6017.
