Man wanted for stealing from elderly woman

The public’s help is being sought to find a Laurel County man who reportedly tried to steal thousands of dollars from an elderly woman, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

On March 21, Saul Boswell went to an elderly Laurel County resident and told her he would patch her driveway for $48. He sprayed a black substance on part of the drive, reportedly doing a shoddy job, and requested payment. The woman filled out part of the check, but due to poor vision asked Boswell to fill out the amount of $48. He instead filled the check out for $4,800.

Boswell went to a local bank to cash the check, but bank tellers were suspicious and told him to go to another bank to cash the check. When he resisted, the tellers notified the sheriff’s office. Boswell left the bank.

Detective Josh Scott obtained a warrant of arrest for Boswell for criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Anyone who knows Boswell’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office at 878-7000 or 864-6600. Callers can remain anonymous.

Woman arrested for drug paraphernalia

A London woman was arrested Saturday for possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Donna Nantz, 45, complained that a man was allegedly violating an Emergency Protective Order, according to Root. However, when deputies Mikey Ashurst and Shawn Boroviak arrived they found nobody at the scene and Nantz was not present. Deputies also learned a similar complaint had been called in the day before with nothing found.

After an investigation, Nantz was located on Lily Road. She said she never saw the man at the reported residence because she was never there. Further investigation allegedly revealed fresh needle marks on Nantz’s arm and deputies located a syringe along with a burnt spoon in her possession. Nantz allegedly told deputies she had injected a painkiller into her system.

Nantz was charged with falsely reporting an incident and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested after being found in possession of drugs

A London man was arrested Friday for resisting arrest and public intoxication, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Donald Johnson, 25, was discovered by deputies Larry Parrott and Robbie Grimes after a burglary complaint was called in north of London. Witnesses reportedly told deputies Johnson entered a residence through a window, and he was located inside the residence. He was arrested following a short scuffle, and Johnson allegedly continued to yell and scream at deputies while in handcuffs.

Johnson was determined to be extremely intoxicated, and a needle was found inside a toothbrush holder in his possession.

Johnson was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct, menacing, resisting arrest, public intoxication–controlled substances, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested on warrant

A London man was arrested Friday on a warrant for bigamy, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Keith Tanner, 31, was charged on a Madison County bench warrant. He was also charged on a Harlan County bench warrant for third-degree assault (victim a police officer), resisting arrest, and menacing.

Tanner was arrested by Detective Josh Scott and was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Woman arrested for public intoxication

A Lily woman was arrested Thursday for public intoxication, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Shawn Boroviak conducted a traffic stop on a green Chevrolet Malibu and investigated the passenger, Amber Smith, 21. Smith was determined to be under the influence and a danger to herself and others. Smith reportedly told Boroviak she had recently smoked meth.

Smith was charged with public intoxication–controlled substances and jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested for public intoxication

A London man was arrested Saturday after he was discovered walking along the roadway under the influence, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Harold Gilliam, 48, was found by Deputy Daniel Grigsby after a homeowner complained that Gilliam had damaged a phone line and satellite receiver.

Gilliam was reportedly walking down Terrill’s Creek while drinking a beer. Upon investigation, Grigsby determined Gilliam was under the influence.

Gilliam was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and drinking alcoholic beverages in a public place. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested for assault

A London man was arrested Friday after assaulting his mother, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Michael Medlock, 33, was allegedly involved in an altercation with his mother. He reportedly slapped her in the face and choked her. He threatened to hurt her and had been violent in the past, Root said.

Medlock was arrested by Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and charged him with fourth-degree assault. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
