CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Woman arrested for fleeing police

Fleeing a sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop Wednesday landed a Laurel County woman behind bars Thursday afternoon.

Emma Osborne, 37, of North Highway 25, East Bernstadt, was charged on a bench warrant of arrest for first-degree fleeing or evading police in a motor vehicle.

She was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center in London.

The arrest happened around 3:42 p.m, about five miles north of London on U.S. 25 north.

Allegedly, Osborne fled from a uniformed Laurel County Sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop on Wednesday in the southern part of the county.

Sheriff’s Detective Jason Back and Deputy James Sizemore made the arrest. They were assisted at the scene by Dep. Shane Rice and Sgt. Josh Gaylor.

London man jailed for operating vehicle under the influence

When a Laurel County man was found by deputies passed out in his truck Wednesday night, he admitted to drinking at least 10 beers. He was arrested for operating the truck under the influence and was jailed.

Charles Allen, 50, of Westerfield Road, London, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, and failure to wear seat belts.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center.

The incident occurred around 11:02 p.m., nine miles south of London on Westerfield Road.

Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Boroviak made the arrest after he found Allen passed out in his tan-colored Ford F150 pickup, with the keys in the ignition and the vehicle running.

Bovoriak conducted a roadside investigation, and Allen was determined to be under the influence.

Allen stated he had drunk at least 10 Budweiser beers.

Burglary call leads to Laurel man jailed on several counts

A call to a burglary in progress in northern Laurel County Wednesday night led to the arrest of a man on several charges, including criminal mischief and public intoxication.

Charles Sizemore, 38, of Haley Ridge Road, London was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, third-degree criminal trespassing, public intoxication (controlled substances), and resisting arrest, after Sizemore scuffled with deputies when he was arrested.

In addition, Sizemore was charged with giving an officer a false name.

Deputies also determined that Sizemore was wanted on a Laurel County Bench Warrant of arrest for charges of failure to appear in Laurel District Court on charges of resisting arrest, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, fourth-degree assault, and contempt of court.

The incident happened around 7:20 p.m.

Sheriff John Root reported Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and Deputy Robbie Grimes were sent to a burglary in progress on Dean Hundley Road, seven miles north of London.

On their way to the scene, deputies learned that the homeowner’s 16-year-old juvenile daughter was at the residence alone when her mother’s ex-boyfriend allegedly unlawfully attempted to enter the home by breaking out a rear window of the residence.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they located Sizemore and then conducted a search, finding Sizemore about 100 yards behind the residence, hiding.

Deputies described Sizemore as extremely intoxicated at the time of his arrest.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center in London.

Laurel man arrested for theft by deception

Getting money to do repairs and not making those repairs got a Laurel County man arrested Wednesday morning on two bench warrants.

Robert Chadwell, 40, of Overbey Road, London, was charged with theft by deception in one of the two bench warrants of arrest.

He’s jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center.

The arrest was made around 11:15 a.m. on U.S.25 in London, by Sheriff’s Lieutenant Chuck Johnson and Captain Rodney Van Zant.

Chadwell allegedly received $604 for parts and labor from the victim for labor and parts to repair frozen water lines at the victim’s apartments. Chadwell stated he needed the money up front, but never came back and completed any work.

In addition, Chadwell was charged with theft by unlawful taking regarding a second victim who stated that Chadwell allegedly was hired to do repairs on a mobile home, and took money for repairs and materials, but never purchased the materials.

The total value of that alleged theft was $1,251.

Baliff Brandon Broughton assisted Johnson and Van Zant at the scene.
