Convenience store burglar wanted

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying the man who attempted to burglarize a convenience store Sunday, according to Sheriff John Root.

The attempted burglary happened about midnight after the man cut a hole in the roof of Git n Go, located one mile east of London. When the man dropped to the floor, he set off an alarm. He fled through a door with a dead bolt lock on it.

The man is described as being white, 6 feet two inches tall, with a goatee, wearing camouflaged coveralls and a white hoodie.

Anyone with information about this crime or the suspect is asked to call the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office at 606-864-6600 or 606-878-7000. Callers can remain anonymous.

Deputy Billy Madden continues the investigation.

Tip about pregnant girl leads to arrest of mother, boyfriend

An anonymous tip led investigators to a Laurel County home where it was determined a live-in boyfriend had impregnated his girlfriend’s 14-year-old daughter, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The girl, who is described as mildly mentally handicapped, is seven and a half months pregnant. The girl’s mother told investigators she learned her daughter was pregnant several months ago, but she chose to remain with her boyfriend. The mother planned to pretend to be the birth mother once her grandchild was born.

Detective Stacy Anderkin, along with social service workers, responded to the tip, which was received Friday.

The mother was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of first-degree complicity to rape.

The girl was removed from the home and placed with a relative.

On Wednesday, the boyfriend, Franklin Brown, 45, of London, was arrested by Detective Stacy Anderkin and charged with three counts of first-degree rape.

Both the mother and Brown are jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
