London man indicted for robbery of gas station

CORBIN — By Becky Killian / Editor

A London man has been indicted on nine charges related to his attempted robbery of a gas station, according to Laurel Circuit Court documents.

Johnny L. Perkins, 33, entered the Speedway located on North Main Street in London on Dec. 24 and told the clerk he was robbing the store, court documents indicate. The clerk asked Perkins if he was joking and, when Perkins said it wasn’t a joke, the clerk said she was going to call the police. At that point, Perkins fled. He was soon spotted leaving the London Truck Stop parking lot by London Police Officer William Goins. Goins attempted to stop Perkins, but Perkins sped away, though he stopped on an overpass on Route 80 West.

Perkins was indicted for receiving stolen property worth $500 or more but less than $10,000 in relation to a stolen 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier, first-degree fleeing or evading police,  first-degree wanton endangerment, second-degree robbery, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants, resisting arrest, reckless driving, operating a motor vehicle while license is revoked or suspended and for being a persistent felony offender.

In another indictment, seven people face drug-related charges, including Damian K. Barrett, 26, of London, who was indicted on five charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance related to the sales of oxycodone, heroin and cocaine to a cooperating witness with the London Police Department. Daniel Taylor, 51, of Cincinnati, Ohio, Danielle Kemp, also known as Chasity Kemp, 27, of Manchester, Ashley B. Edwards, 27, of London, and James W. Edwards, 31, of London, each face two charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance for possessing cocaine and heroin for sale. Derrick Boggs, 28, and Heather Miller, 21, both of London, face two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance related to possessing heroin and cocaine.

Others indicted were:

—Andy J. Ridener, 20, and Michael I. Mayes, also known as Michael Mays, 21, both of Corbin, were indicted for third-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking worth more than $500 but less than $10,000.

—Laura G. Glodo, 27, and Bryan N. Mounts, 30, both of London, theft by unlawful taking worth $500 or more but less than $10,000.

—Jennifer Leigh Hibbits, also known as Jennifer York, 36, of London, three counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

—James P. Creech, 35, of Corbin, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance related to the sale of oxycodone.

—Marty L. Sizemore, 49, of Lily, was indicted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Sizemore, along with Lisa D. Whicker, 46, of Lily, was indicted for second- and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Whicker was charged with being a persistent felony offender.

—Caprecia Hubbard, 38, of Lily, was charged with program assistance fraud related to a failure to report a change in factors affecting her eligibility for SNAP benefits. As a result, court documents indicate she fraudulently received $3,395 in SNAP benefits to which she was not entitled.

—Kenneth C. Casteel, 23, of East Bernstadt, first-degree possession of a controlled substance related to methamphetamine.

—Rebecca Allen, 31, of East Bernstadt, two counts of program assistance fraud for failing to report a change in factors related to her eligibility for SNAP benefits and Medicaid. Court documents indicate she fraudulently obtained $12,971 in SNAP benefits and $10,738 in Medicaid benefits.

—Anthony W. Gilbert, 42, of Manchester, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

—David Needham, also known as David Cruz, 42, of Bowling Green, flagrant non-support.

—Timothy Dugger, 32, of London, flagrant non-support.

—Tabetha Hinkle, 28, of London, flagrant non-support and being a persistent felony offender.

—Perry Waddle, 48, of London, flagrant non-support.

Christopher Elkins, 31, of East Bernstadt, flagrant non-support.
