CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report
Juvenile leads police on chase
Charges are being pursued against a male juvenile who led police on a chase Saturday that ended with the boy losing control of the pickup he drove and crashing into a thicket, according to Kentucky State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Public Affairs Officer Officer Steven Douglas.
Officer Mike Hamblin attempted to stop a 2011 Dodge truck for speeding on U.S. 25E in Corbin, but the driver didn’t stop. Hamblin pursued the truck, which turned onto Campground Road to Oak Ridge Church Road. After it turned onto a long, gravel driveway, the driver lost control of the truck, which left the road and came to rest in a thicket.
The driver fled on foot and was not found that night. Four passengers found in the vehicle were not injured. They were later released following the investigation.
Hamblin’s investigation has led to the driver being identified and charges are being obtained through the Court Designated Workers office.
Hamblin continues the investigation.
Two arrested on drug charges
A Corbin man and a Knox County woman are in jail after they were arrested on drug charges in Laurel County Sunday night, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
Stanley W. Roberts, 32, of Corbin, was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance as well as prescription-controlled substance not in a proper container.
Glenda B. Brock, 50, of Gray, was charged with three counts of third-degree possession of a controlled substance along with a prescription-controlled substance not in a proper container.
Just after 10 p.m. Sunday, deputies Kirk Mays and Shawn Boroviak received a complaint about possible drug activity and persons being loud at a motel in southern Laurel County. The two conducted an investigation when they arrived, and discovered pills in a plastic cigarette wrap that was in Roberts’ possession. Deputies also found in Brock’s possession assorted pills that were in an unmarked pill bottle.
Both Brock and Roberts are being held in the Laurel County Corrections Center.
