CORBIN — Corbin man charged with shoplifting

A Corbin man was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting Friday.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Darrell W. Moran, 34, was arrested just after 6 p.m. by Deputy Daniel Grigsby at the Walmart in Corbin.

Root alleged that Moran went through the store getting items, then took them to the service desk requesting a refund without a receipt.

Walmart employees issued him a gift card for the items, but as he attempted to leave the store, Walmart Loss Prevention Team detained him.

Root said the investigation revealed the subject on camera putting the “returned” items into his cart, taking them to the service desk and completing the fake transaction. A woman involved in the fake exchange disappeared before she could be detained, but law enforcement is looking for her.

Moran remains jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center under a $1,000 cash bond. He faces one charge of theft by unlawful taking through shoplifting.

Unresponsive man eventually wakened, arrested

Two panic alarms sent Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Berry to a Vanzant Road resident Friday afternoon.

Sheriff John Root said that when Berry arrived at the scene to check the alarms, he got no response after knocking on the door.

Root said that when the deputy looked into the residence, he could see a small child crawling underneath a Christmas tree — and he could also see a male subject laying apparently unresponsive on the floor.

The sheriff said Berry made a second attempt at the door and was finally able to get the man up off the floor to open the door.

Root said the deputy could smell alcoholic beverages around the man, and noted he could not balance himself and had slurred speech.

No other adults were inside the home, Root said.

The man allegedly told the deputy he had drank several beers and some liquor.

Root said that based on investigation, Berry determined the man had neglected to care for his 21-month-old daughter.

Social Services and the child’s mother were both called to the scene, and the child was released to her mother.

Root said that Berry arrested Nicholas C. Rodgerson, 27, of London. He faces one charge of endangering the welfare of a minor.

He was released from the Laurel County Correctional Center Saturday on a $2,500 cash bond.

Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter assisted with the investigation at the scene.
