East Bernstadt gas station burglarized

A Shell station on Ky 490 in East Bernstadt was burglarized at some point Wednesday night through Thursday morning, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Unknown subjects reportedly forced entry into the front door of the business, and stole an undisclosed amount of money from an ATM, money from the business, and a large quantity of Marlboro cigarettes. They then fled through the back door of the building.

The surveillance video is being analyzed by deputies. Anyone who may have seen a suspect vehicle or suspects in the area of East Bernstadt Shell is asked to contact the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department at 864-6600 or 878-7000. Callers can remain anonymous.

Woman arrested for shoplifting

A London woman was arrested Saturday for shoplifting at a Walmart in southern Laurel County, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Judy Lawless, 42, was detained by Walmart’s loss prevention team after she was allegedly seen concealing body wash in a personal handbag and another item underneath her personal handbag. Lawless reportedly proceeded to a checkout register and paid for an item, but failed to pay for the concealed items.

Lawless was arrested by Deputy Larry Parrott and charged with shoplifting. She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Woman arrested on multiple warrants

An East Bernstadt woman was arrested Saturday on two arrest warrants, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Man arrested for DUI

A Rockholds man was arrested Saturday after sliding into a ditch in his vehicle, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
