POLICE ROUNDUP: Laurel Sheriff’s Dept. makes several DUI arrests

LAUREL COUNTY — Laurel County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested several people suspected for driving under the influence.

Sheriff John Root said the arrests were the result of concentrated efforts in high  accident locations using selective enforcement in an attempt to detect and arrest (thereby removing) DUI drivers. Statistics show DUI drivers are involved in a large number of serious injury and fatal crashes statewide.

Monday’s fatal crash in Flat Lick had witnesses reporting prior to the accident that the driver of the one vehicle may have been under the influence.

Deputy Kirk Mays arrested four drivers for suspected DUI.

On Dec. 20, Brittany Edds, 23, of London, was observed by Mays driving without headlights on North Main Street. She was arrested and faces DUI charges.

Just before midnight on Dec. 21, Nicholas Cima, 33, of Corbin, was seen by Mays driving without taillights on Beatty Avenue. He was arrested and now faces DUI charges.

On Dec. 22 just after 3 a.m., Mays observed David Wayne Hulsebus, 46, of Corbin, weaving across the center line of American Greeting Road. He was arrested and faces DUI charges.

At 2 a.m. Dec. 23, Mays witnessed Chris Johnson, 45, of London, fail to use a turn signal and weave on South U.S. 25. He was arrested and faces DUI charges.

Deputies Greg Turner and Robbie Grimes arrested James M. Jones, 51, of London, about 4:30 p.m. Christmas day. Jones reportedly crashed his vehicle into a creek on Dezarn Road. He now faces DUI charges.

All arrested individuals were jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility.

Shoplifting suspect also faces drug charges

London Police Chief Stewart Walker reports that just before the 8 p.m. closing time at Walmart on Christmas Eve, Loss Prevention at the store apprehended a man suspected of shoplifting $37.38 of store merchandise.

A search of the man revealed 1.2 grams of a powdery, rocky substance in the watch pocket of his pants. Field tests confirmed the substance was methamphetamines, according to Walker.

Shawn L. Holt, 24, was arrested and now faces charges of theft by unlawful taking of property worth less than $500, and first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center.
