CORBIN —

The second count indicts him for first-degree fleeing or evading police after he allegedly failed to obey the signals of Sgt. Walker to stop running. The third count indicts Baker for his first offense of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants. The fourth count indicts him for driving too fast for conditions. The fifth count indicts him for driving a motor vehicle while license is revoked or suspended. The sixth count indicts him for being a second-degree persistent felony offender after his February 2010 conviction in Laurel Circuit Court for his first offense of manufacturing methamphetamine, for which he was sentenced to 17 years. He was booked into the Laurel County Correctional Center Dec. 6 and released Dec. 10 on a $5,000 cash bond.

— Lillian B. Grubb Jordan, 22, of Keavy, was indicted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, after she allegedly knowingly and unlawfully sold less than 10 doses of Oxycodone to a cooperating witness with the Corbin Police Department Aug. 27. There are no JailTracker records indicating she has been formally booked on this charge.

— Kenneth C. Middleton, 22, of Somerset, and Lindsey N. Morris, 20, of London, were each named on a three-count indictment Friday in Laurel Circuit Court for charges incurred Feb. 5. The first count indicts them for first-degree burglary after they allegedly knowingly and unlawfully entered the residence of a couple, and reportedly while in possession of a firearm. The second count indicts the pair for first-degree criminal mischief after they allegedly damaged a French door and bedroom door owned by that same couple, causing more than $1,000 in damages. The third count indicts them both for theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 after they allegedly knowingly and unlawfully took a gun cabinet with 11 guns, coins, a crossbow and other items from the same couple. Morris was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center Feb. 6, where she remains under a $5,000 cash bond. Middleton was also jailed in the correctional center, and he, too, remains there under a $5,000 cash bond.
