CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Man arrested, reportedly threatened woman with baseball bat

A London man who reportedly threatened a woman with a baseball bat was arrested Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Randy D. Hicks, 43, of London, smelled of alcohol and a marijuana pipe was found on him, Root said.

Hicks’ arrest came after deputies Josh Scott and Larry Parrott were sent about 3 p.m. to Hawk Creek Road.

Hicks was standing in the driveway when the deputies arrived. The deputies learned he reportedly had smoked marijuana prior to their arrival.

Hicks is charged with public intoxication-controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Tobacco store robbed Friday

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the man responsible for the armed robbery of a tobacco store in southern Laurel County Friday, according to Sheriff John Root.

The robbery happened just before 8 p.m. at Unique Tanning and Gifts when a man armed with a pistol walked up to the drive-thru window and demanded cash. The man then fled on foot.

Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter along with deputies Robbie Grimes and Josh Scott responded to the store, which is located 10 miles south of London along U.S. 25W.

The suspect is described as a white male, age 25-30, who is tall and thin, with a goatee and dirty blond hair. He was wearing a plain blue hoodie and was armed with a black pistol.

Root said it isn’t believed Friday’s robbery is related to two recent robberies in the southern Laurel County area.

Officers from Corbin Police Department and Kentucky State Police assisted.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 606-864-6600 or 606-878-7000. Callers can remain anonymous.

Detective Daryl Zanet continues the investigation.

London man arrested for DUI

A London man was arrested Saturday after two deputies saw him apparently driving while under the influence, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The arrest came about 3 p.m. after deputies Robbie Grimes and Larry Parrott saw a car driven by Issac Montes Cosar, 27, swerving into oncoming lanes and speeding on Hal Rogers Parkway, about one mile east of London.

When deputies stopped Cosar, he couldn’t stand on his own, Root said. Deputies found empty beer cans and an unopened beer in Cosar’s vehicle.

Cosar was charged with speeding (86 in a 55 zone), reckless driving and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, as well as other traffic violations.

Cosar was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
