CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Telephone users beware.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Sgt. E.R. Rudder continues his investigation into a telephone scam.

Root explained an unknown telephone caller contacts residents and attempts to gain personal information.

The sheriff said the caller does this by telling persons they will attempt to help them remove “bugs” from their computer.

The caller requests personal information from people’s home computer, saying the information is required to be given over the telephone.

Root and the sheriff’s office wants to remind everyone they should never give out personal information about themselves or their computer to unknown persons calling.

“This case is obviously a scam,” Root said.

Two arrested at Judicial Center

Laurel County Sheriff’s Bailiff Kenton Scharf arrested two individuals last week.

On Thursday, Scharf arrested Neil Hoskins, 52, of London.

He was handcuffed in the Laurel County Judicial Center and jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

He had a bench warrant for his arrest, as he had been final sentenced for flagrant non-support. Hoskins has a $3,600 bond.

Bailiff Andrew Lawson assisted in the arrest.

Scharf and Lawson also arrested 27-year-old Daniel Webb, of London, on Monday at the Judicial Center in London.

Webb was arrested on a warrant charging him with harassing communications.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested after failing to appear twice

A London man landed in the Laurel County Correctional Center Thursday on various charges.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Deputy Shane Rice arrested 34-year-old Robert Kazee just after noon on Valentine’s Day on East Pittsburg Road in London.

He faces charges on two failure-to-appear warrants. Kazee also faces charges of second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense.
