Police Roundup - Dec. 10, 2013


CORBIN — Three arrested after disturbance at business

Three London men were arrested just before 8:30 Saturday night, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Root explained that the three suspects entered a business on U.S. 25W and appeared to be under the influence.

The trio allegedly proceeded to create a disturbance inside the store, and Root said one of the men was seen carrying a concealed pistol and wearing a bulletproof vest.

Deputy Robbie Grimes stopped the three men as they were leaving the parking lot in a Range Rover — Root said while they were stopped the three allegedly continued to create a disturbance by yelling and using profanity around other customers at the business.

The sheriff alleged that the three appeared to be under the influence and subsequently arrested.

Those three and their charges are:

— Charles W. Phillips, 25, the driver of the Range Rover, now faces charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence, second-degree disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest, no insurance and other traffic violations.

— Jose R. Galicia, 26, a passenger, now faces charges of second-degree disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

— Cole A. Robinson, 19, now faces charges of second-degree disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

Galicia and Robinson were released Sunday from the Laurel County Correctional Center under $1,000 unsecured bonds. Phillips was released on Sunday as well, but under a $2,500 surety bond. Assisting at the scene were deputies Larry Parrott and Daniel Grigsby, detectives Jason Back and Brad Mitchell, and Kentucky State Police Trooper Brandon Creekmore.

Ohio man arrested in Knox County

An Ohio man with several local warrants was arrested by the Kentucky State Police Friday.

Just after 6 p.m. KSP troopers Wayne Hensley and Brian Maupin made a traffic stop on a green Ford F-150 truck on Hurricane Lane in Barbourville.

The truck was stopped after the driver allegedly failed to use a signal, nearly causing a crash with oncoming traffic.

That driver was Bobby Smith, 61, from Dayton.

Hensley discovered that Smith had warrants from Knox, Bell, and Grant counties.

Further investigation revealed a revolver, a quantity of marijuana, crystal methamphetamine, and $1,670.

Smith was jailed in the Knox County Detention Center and now faces charges of failure to or improper signal, operating on a suspended or revoked driver’s license, improper display of registration plate, possession of marijuana, trafficking in marijuana less that 8 ounces, first offense, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, and reckless driving.

He remains jailed in the detention center under a $10,000 cash bond.

The case remains under investigation by Trooper Wayne Hensley from Post 10 Harlan.
