Police Roundup - July 7, 2014

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Man with gun holds woman captive in his truck

Police arrested a man Thursday for using a gun to hold a woman captive in his truck, according to London City Police Chief Derek House.

Sgt. Doug Thomas and Sgt. Travis Dotson responded to the complaint after a woman  texted her mother asking her to call the police.

Ora Angel, 70, of London, was allegedly driving a female passenger around and pointing a gun at her — refusing to let her leave the vehicle. On one occasion, Angel allegedly pulled the trigger but the gun did not fire, House said.

Officers located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. After further investigation Angel was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon, first-degree unlawful imprisonment and first-degree wanton endangerment.

Angel was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Assisting at the scene was Officer George Cloyd.

Deputies find man hiding in woods

A man hiding from police was found intoxicated in nearby woods, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Officers were dispatched to a verbal domestic violence complaint Friday around 4:30 a.m. and upon arrival found Joshua Angel, 38, of Lily, hiding in the woods.

Angel was determined to be under the influence and was placed under arrest by Deputy Tyler Morris; however, Angel became belligerent and combative, Root said.

Angel was charged with alcohol intoxication and resisting arrest. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Assisting Morris at the scene were Sgt. Brett Reeves, Deputy Shawn Boroviak and Kentucky State Police troopers Chris Saunders and Mike King.

Two arrested for endangering the welfare of a minor

A welfare check led to two arrests Thursday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputies Kenton Scharf and Robbie Grimes along with Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter arrested Kimberly Cope, 34, and Robert Shelton, 44, both of London.

The arrests came after a complaint regarding a welfare check of a minor through social services. When deputies and a social worker arrived at the location they determined Cope and Shelton to be under the influence of drugs.

The child that was under their care was asleep in a crib.

Cope and Shelton were both charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of marijuana. They were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

The child was placed with relatives.
