Police Roundup -Nov. 28, 2012

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

W’burg pair charged in burglaries

A Whitley County grand jury will hear evidence concerning two people suspected in burglarizing the First Deliverance Church in Williamsburg.

On Monday Williamsburg Police Detective Bobby Freeman and Officer Jim Pool arrested Karen L. Dople, 35, and Mark David Wyatt, 27, both of Williamsburg.

The duo faces two counts each of third-degree burglary in connection with two separate break-ins at the church. On Nov. 12, the suspects forced open the front door and stole a Peavey amplifier valued at $400.

On Nov. 24 the suspects returned, this time breaking out a side window to gain entry. In this burglary, two Peavey monitor speakers were stolen, valued at $400.

Further investigation revealed the stolen items were pawned for $175 at a Corbin pawn shop.

All stolen property was returned to the church.

Deputy Chief Jason Caddell assisted in the arrests.

Deputies arrest roundup suspects

Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Back and a Deputy U.S. Marshal arrested Davan Smith, 34, of London Monday.

Smith was one suspect sought after last week’s drug roundup in Laurel County.

She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center facing charges of first-degree trafficking a controlled substance (methamphetamines), first offense.

Also arrested was Travis McQueen, 39, of London. He was also jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Facility facing charges of giving an officer a false name. According to Sheriff John Root, McQueen was at a residence where deputies were conducting an investigation, and upon being questioned gave deputies his brother’s name and social security number to avoid being arrested.

Root says more arrests are coming.
