CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Robber asks for only two $10 bills

A man entered the No Clouds Allowed tanning salon Monday at about 9:30 a.m. and asked for two $10 bills.

The cashier gave him the money.

The man left without incident, reported Laurel County Chief Deputy Sheriff Eddie Sizemore.

He said there were no other customers inside the business and only a 20-year-old employee.

The tanning salon is on U.S. 25 between London and Corbin.

Sizemore continues the investigation.

McDonald’s maintenance man arrested Saturday

On Saturday morning, London police were told a suspicious vehicle was behind the Kroger store on North Main Street, according to London Police Chief Stewart Walker.

The vehicle had no lights on at about 1:24 a.m., the caller reported.

The vehicle then crossed Main Street to the McDonald’s restaurant according to another call.

Officer Justin Roby arrived and saw the empty vehicle there.

As other officers got there, the accused, Shawn Ostering, left a storage building behind McDonald’s.

He was wearing a McDonald’s uniform and told police he was the restaurant’s maintenance man who was supposed to get a part from a bread machine to fix one at another store.

Ostering said he was trying to get an early start on the repair so he didn’t have to get up early the next morning.

As it turned out, the officers’ investigation indicated that Ostering’s tools were at a different machine than the bread machine.

He was trying to remove a copper cooler unit from an ice cream machine.

He told them he had left the McDonald’s and drove to Kroger to wait for other employees to leave the restaurant before he returned to take the items.

He explained he was going to sell the items and admitted having a substance problem

The store manager said Ostering was the store’s maintenance man, but that Ostering had no business being in the storage building at that time of the night.

Ostering, of London, was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools.

London Police find fugitive

On Tuesday, London Police helped find a fugitive from Dinwiddie, Va., according to Chief Stewart Walker.

Tommy L. Hooker Jr., 18, was believed to be living in London.

He was wanted in Dinwiddie on probation violation charges.

London officers searched several locations in London and Laurel County.

When Hooker wasn’t found, they learned he had gotten transportation to Barbourville.

London Detectives Joe Smith and Gary Proffitt notified the Barbourville Police.

They told Barbourville police that the suspect was possibly at 306 Church Street in Barbourville.

Smith and Proffitt met the Barbourville police and Hooker was taken into custody with no incident and was taken to the Laurel County Corrections Center.
