CORBIN — Woman arrested for shoplifting

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

Vickie Blanton, 50, was detained by Walmart’s loss prevention team after she was reportedly observed concealing clothing items in her purse. Blanton then selected items in the store, paid for those items, but failed to pay for the clothing concealed in her purse.

Blanton was arrested by Deputy Larry Parrott and charged with shoplifting, as well as two Laurel County bench warrants for failure to appear in court. She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Two arrested for marijuana use

A Smithfield, Penn. man and an East Bernstadt man were arrested Sunday after a traffic stop, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Wiley Gambrel Jr, 27, of Smithfield, Penn. was driving a green Honda Civic with Larry Proffitt, 22, of East Bernstadt as his passenger when he reportedly made a hard right turn without using a turn signal. Deputy Mikey Ashurst conducted a traffic stop, and upon examination of the two detected the odor of what appeared to be marijuana in the vehicle. Gambrel and Proffitt allegedly told Ashurst they had smoked marijuana prior to driving, and Ashurst determined that they were under the influence.

Gambrel was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, failure to signal, failure of owner to maintain required insurance, and failure to wear seatbelts.

Proffitt was charged with public intoxication–controlled substances. Both were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Woman arrested for public intoxication

A London woman was arrested Monday after she came to a residence where deputies were conducting an investigation, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Sarah Strawn, 35, was obviously intoxicated, according to Root. She was arrested by Detective Jason Back  and charged with public intoxication–controlled substances. Strawn was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Deputy James Sizemore assisted at the scene.
