Three men charged with selling stolen four-wheeler

CORBIN — By Michele Baker/Staff Writer

Three Corbin men will face charges of receiving stolen property under $10,000 after selling a stolen four-wheeler in November, according to Corbin Police Department Public Information Officer Major Rob Jones.

Jones said charges against Christopher Carter, 35, Doug Carter, 56, and Justin Cornett, 21, are pending in February’s grand jury session. A joint investigation between the Corbin Police Department and the Two Rivers Drug Task Force into burglaries in and around Corbin led to the recovery of a stolen four-wheeler from Earls Street, Jones stated.

A 2006 Kawasaki Brute-Force ATV valued at $6,000 was reported stolen in late November. Jones said two of the alleged offenders, Chris Carter and Cornett, spoke to officers while in jail, and reported they had been in possession of the stolen vehicle and had sold it for $300 to Chris Carter’s father, Doug Carter.

After an investigation, the stolen four-wheeler was found in Charleston, W.Va., at the home of Chris Carter’s in-law, Jones said. The four-wheeler was seized by Charleston Police and returned to its owner.

Jones said Chris Carter is linked to the pontoon boat stolen from the Grove Marina Camp Ground Work Center. The boat, worth $5,000, was being stripped for metal and was found Jan. 20 at the home of Todd and Josh Fields on Oak Ridge Road. Also found at the home were three methamphetamine labs, Jones said.

Jones reported four suspects had been trading stolen merchandise for meth. Arrested and charged with making meth, possessing a meth precursor and first-degree possession of a controlled substance were Todd Fields, 46, Josh Fields, 22, Pennie Hubbard, 22, and Danny Lawson, 21.

Jones said Chris Carter had been found in Harlan in a truck stolen from the Grove Marina.

Corbin Police Department Sgt. Jim Miller continues the investigation.
