Three appear in court for bomb

CORBIN —  

By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Three people charged in connection with a bomb found at a Canadatown residence March 1 appeared before Judge Cathy Prewitt in Whitley County District Court Monday for their preliminary hearings.

Lisa Ball, 49, Daniel Moeser, 44, and Jerry White, 35, all of Whitley County, all pleaded not guilty Monday morning.

According to Whitley County Attorney Bob Hammons, Ball’s case had already been waived to the grand jury.

Moeser and White, both ankle cuffed, handcuffed and dressed in orange prison suits, appeared before Prewitt this morning.

The result of their brief court appearance? Their cases will also now head for the grand jury.

All three will be represented by attorneys with the public defender’s office.

The trio was arrested by the Williamsburg Police Department after a probation officer discovered an active meth lab at their Nanny Hubbard Road residence, according to Chief Wayne Bird.

That officer asked for assistance, and K-9 Officer Brandon Prewitt came to do a search of the home — and that’s when they discovered an explosive device, according to Bird.

No one was injured from the device, nor the meth lab.

The Kentucky State Police Bomb Squad was called to the scene as well as agents with the London office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — all to defuse the device.

Three neighborhood homes and eight other people were evacuated while officials worked to clear the scene.

Bird said the explosive device was an ammonium nitrate-based explosive.

All three defendants remain jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center under $50,000 cash bonds. The three are scheduled to next appear in court on April 15.
