Wanted fugitive arrested in Laurel County

A tip turned in to London-Laurel Crime Stoppers resulted in the arrest of a wanted fugitive Friday evening, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root. The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department Special Response Unit (S.R.U.) commanded by Lt. Chuck Johnson arrested Ryan Segraves, 27 of London, around  5:30 p.m. at a residence after Detective Jason Back acted on a tip he received and later confirmed through London–Laurel Crime Stoppers. Segraves was arrested without incident and charged with second-degree wanton endangerment, escape, fleeing and evading police, and numerous other charges. He had been placed on the Sheriff’s Most Wanted list after a short pursuit along Brown Road off  KY  638 on July 31. Segraves had been sought previously for failing to appear in Laurel District Court on two bench warrants and, on July 23, he escaped custody while handcuffed in the back seat of Constable Tim May’s police cruiser. He cut off the handcuffs.

On July 31, Segraves was seen traveling along Brown Road, but when Deputy John Inman began following him, Segraves led the deputy on a short chase, fled into a relative’s house then out the back door into the woods.

According to the sheriff’s department, Segraves had a long legal history over the past several years.

Also arrested Friday evening was Shannon Johnson, 25, of Corbin. Johnson was charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension. Alesha Wagers, 29, of London, was also charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension.

All three were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Reward offered for information on fugitive

The sheriff’s department continues to look for Stacy O. Savage, who is wanted for probation violation, and investigation into sex crimes.

According to Laurel County Sheriff John Root, Savage is “considered dangerous.”

The London-Laurel Crime Stoppers is offering a $500 reward for information leading to Savage’s arrest. Any individual caught hiding or aiding this suspect will be investigated and charged, according to the press release.

Anyone with information about Savage is encouraged to call 606-864-6600 or 606-878-7000.
