CORBIN — Times Tribune Staff Report

Intoxicated woman leads police on chase

 The report of a publicly intoxicated woman resulted in her arrest after she led London Police on a chase Friday while she had a child in her car, according to the London Police Department.

Officer Ryan Jackson responded to the complaint about a woman at Walmart Super Center who appeared to be under the influence, police said.

Before Jackson arrived,  the woman left the Walmart parking lot at a high rate of speed. Jackson located and attempted to make a traffic stop on a 1996 Chevy Tracker, police said. The woman  pulled into the Kmart parking lot and stopped but, as the officer attempted to get out of his police cruiser, she sped off at a high rate of speed turning onto Market Place Spur, police said.

The woman continued to drive south on KY 363 going at a high rate of speed while passing vehicles in a non-passing zone. She continued on KY 363, turned on KY 552 then drove west onto KY 192.

 She then continued to  KY 1193 South, until she reached KY 3497.

The woman, Tracey House, of London, was boxed in by officers at the Rockcastle River campground and was arrested after a brief struggle, police said. After she was stopped, officers located a 7-year-old child in the rear seat of the vehicle.

During the pursuit two London Police cruisers along with a Bald Rock Fire truck were rammed by House, causing minor damage, police said. House was charged with first-degree fleeing/evading police, eight counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, DUI 2nd offense, resisting arrest, disregarding stop sign, failure to wear seat belts and speeding 26 or greater. Jackson is continuing the investigation.

 Assisting agencies were Laurel County Sheriff’s office, Kentucky State Police and US Forest Service.

Stolen cycles recovered

 A Lexington and a Covington man were arrested after stolen motorcycles were found in the back of a pickup they were driving, according to a Laurel County Sheriff’s Department press release.

 Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Kirk Mays received a complaint that two motorcycles had been stolen from a residence off Blossum Ridge 11 miles south of London early Monday morning at approximately 2:54 a.m.

 As Mays responded to the scene, he received a second call from 911 dispatch reporting that the owner of the motorcycles had located his stolen property in the back of a pickup truck, the press release said. Mays arrived at the location 10 miles south of London on KY 770 and observed the motorcycles in the back of a black Chevrolet pickup.

Brian J. Cress, 25 of, Lexington, and Joseph D. Gregory, 24, of Covington, were both charged with receiving stolen property over $500. They were transported to the Laurel County Detention Facility.
