Bloody burglar runs, scuffles with state police

A Corbin man who was bloodied by an injury he suffered when he broke into a Whitley County market was arrested early Thursday, according to Kentucky State Police Post 11-London Public Affairs Officer TFC Don Trosper.

After an investigation, troopers determined Wayne C. Marcus, 32, broke into the Canada Town Market through its front door, which activated an alarm. Whitley County 911 alerted police about the alarm.

Troopers Tony Dingess and Les Moses arrived about 1 a.m. at the market, which is located along KY 204W in Whitley County. They found a blood trail outside a nearby home where the burglar had run to, according to a tipster.

The troopers went to the home and saw Marcus inside. Marcus fled from police, but was captured a short distance away. After a brief struggle, he was arrested.

Inside the home, troopers found coins covered in blood.

Marcus and Dingess, who was injured during the incident, were both treated and released from Baptist Regional Medical Center.

Marcus was arrested and jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. He is charged with third-degree burglary, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, first-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot), first-degree wanton endangerment (police officer), third-degree assault (police officer), resisting arrest, and theft by unlawful taking (from a building).

Dingess is leading the investigation and was assisted by Moses and Sgt. Bill Elliotte.

Corbin man arrested for being under influence

A Corbin man was arrested Wednesday after he was found under the influence and carrying prescription pills for which he had no prescription, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Jeremy S. Stidham, 26, was at the northbound weigh station along I-75 when he was arrested about 8:30 p.m.

Deputy Greg Turner  determined Stidham was under the influence and in possession of Xanax pills.

Stidham was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Sex offender arrested

A sex offender who failed to register when he moved to London led police on a foot pursuit Wednesday, according to London Police Chief Stewart Walker.

Zakery R. Burritt, 18, had lived in Coldwater, Mich., until he moved and got a job at a London company. Detective Joe Smith and  Officer Eric Stallard went to the company in an attempt to locate Burritt. While officers were attempting to obtain information about Burritt from his employer, Burritt fled into the woods. After co-workers told police in which direction Burritt had run, officers found Burritt in the woods. As Smith and Stallard approached him, Burritt fled, and police pursued him through the woods. After additional London officers responded and surrounded the area, Burritt was arrested without incident.   

Burritt is charged with fugitive from another state, failure to comply with sex offender registration, second-degree fleeing or evading police. He also had a local warrant for shoplifting.
