Police Roundup - June 20, 2012

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Another arrest has been made in a string of burglaries in Laurel County and Sheriff John Root said so far eight victims have identified property stolen from them.

Detective Sgt. Tommy Johnston investigated a complaint that a man was receiving stolen property at his Dean Hundley Road residence in East Bernstadt. Before 9 p.m. Monday, deputies went to the residence and retrieved a firearm that was reported stolen and discovered many items believed to be stolen, as well.

Milford Allen Jr., 47, was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Property seized included numerous rifles, a pressure washer, chain saws, power tools, a jewelry box and fishing equipment. Root said Allen’s arrest was a result of the earlier arrest and recovery of property on Hensley Road on Sunday night.

Laurel Sheriff’s officers assisting included Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Detective Jason Back, Deputy Greg Turner, Deputy Steve Hoskins and Deputy Shawn Boroviak.

Stolen property has been identified by more than eight victims so far, and investigations are continuing.

Marijuana found in Gumm Road yard

A London man was arrested Monday after deputies were told he was growing marijuana, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Lewis Sizemore, 52, was arrested following an investigation by detectives Jason Back and Brad Mitchell, who found five marijuana plants behind Sizemore’s Gumm Road home.

Sizemore was charged with cultivating marijuana five plants or more.

The detectives also learned Sizemore had obtained a Kentucky commercial driver’s license in his brother’s name. Sizemore said he obtained the license because he wasn’t able to get a Kentucky driver’s license in his name because his operator’s license in Michigan was suspended due to a previous driving under the influence charge. Sizemore was also charged with theft of identity of another without consent.

Sizemore was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

 Two Whitley men arrested on theft charges

Two Whitley County men were arrested on theft charges on Monday, according to Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell.

Bret Dixon, 31, of Williamsburg, and Rodney Webb, 34, also of Williamsburg, were arrested around 3 p.m., according to Harrell.

Both men were charged with theft over $500 and transported to the Whitley County Detention Center, according to the arrest report.

“All stolen items were recovered,” Harrel said.

Lt. Bill Riley and Deputy Todd Shelly made the arrest.

Monticello residents arrested for Walmart theft

Two adults and a juvenile were arrested Monday after the juvenile was found in the Walmart parking lot with a shopping cart filled with stolen merchandise worth more than $1,500, according to Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird.

About 8 p.m., Officer Brandon White responded to a shoplifting complaint at the store and found the store’s Loss Prevention Officer had apprehended two adults inside the store with a large amount of merchandise. White learned a third suspect was involved and that’s when he found the juvenile.

Arrested were James Shepherd, Penny Jones and the juvenile. They were charged with theft by unlawful taking over $500.

The adults were jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. The juvenile was released to a parent.
