Traffic stop leads to arrest

A routine traffic stop landed a London woman in jail Wednesday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott arrested Ashley B. Edwards, 27, of London, after learning that she was wanted on a bench warrant, according to the arrest report. Edwards was arrested on West Cumberland Gap Parkway around 8:01 p.m. following a routine traffic stop. During the stop, Parrott ran a check on Edwards, which is how he determined she was a wanted person.

The Laurel Circuit Court warrant is for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, second offense. She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Corbin man arrested for public intoxication

A Corbin man was arrested for public intoxication at a service station on U.S. 25E, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Tyler Morris responded to a report of a “highly intoxicated” man at a service station at 6 p.m. Friday. When Morris arrived at the service station, he located Timothy L. Leach, 43 of Corbin, and determined he was very intoxicated and a danger to himself, Root said.

Leach was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Tenn. fugitive in custody

A Tennessee fugitive is now in custody after being arrested during a traffic stop on Hwy. 92W, according to the Williamsburg Police Department.

About 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, Capt. Eddie Cain stopped a 2000 Dodge van for seatbelt violations and careless driving. During the stop, the driver, Miranda K Broyles, 26, was cited for careless driving and failure to wear a seatbelt. Further investigation revealed active failure to appear warrants on Robin I Pool, 26, of Williamsburg.

Cain was then given false information by Broyles about the identity of her boyfriend, James A. Fields, who was also a passenger in the vehicle. A warrant check revealed Fields was a wanted fugitive from Nashville, Tenn., for sex offender non-compliance. Fields was also wanted on numerous local charges, according to the arrest report.

Pool was arrested and charged with two counts of failure to appear and jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. Broyles was cited for careless driving and failure to wear a seat belt. She was also arrested and charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension and was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

Fields was arrested and charged with a third-degree terroristic threatening warrant out of Laurel County, as well as a failure to appear warrant out of Laurel County and fugitive from another state warrants out of Nashville, Tenn. He was also charged with theft of identity and was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center awaiting extradition to Tennessee.

Cain was assisted at the scene by Officer Brandon White of the Williamsburg Police Department.
