CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Man wanted for theft of barn items

Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell is asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted in connection with the theft of about $10,000 worth of items from a Williamsburg barn.

The theft occurred about 8:15 a.m. Wednesday from the barn at Ryans Creek. A short time later, the property owner saw his stolen items in the bed of a pickup that was traveling on KY 92W. Harrell said the property owner followed the truck and got the driver to stop long enough for the victim to see the driver and note the truck’s license plate number. The property owner asked the driver to get out of the truck, but the driver sped away, with the property owner following him.

After the property owner called Harrell’s office, the sheriff’s office and the property owner went to the address listed on the license plate. Along the way, Harrell said they recovered some of the stolen property, which was apparently dumped from the pickup truck the property owner had seen.

The truck used in the theft was found at the home of Billy G. Miller, of Strunk.

The Whitley County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by McCreary Sheriff’s Department.

On Thursday, Harrell said several stolen items were recovered by the property owner with the use of an informant.

Miller was positively identified by the property owner as the thief, so an arrest warrant was issued.

Miller is described as a 23-year-old white man, 5 feet 8 inches tall weighing approximately 115 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about Miller’s whereabouts is asked to call the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department at 606-549-6006, 606-549-6017 or by dialing 911.

LSD sale leads to arrest

A Corbin man was arrested Thursday after he sold LSD to an informant, according to Corbin Police Public Affairs Officer Major Rob Jones.

Anthony Medley, 22, was arrested about 7:30 a.m. at his 5th Street home. He was charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center .

During a search of the home, police found a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Freddie Tallant, 22, of Corbin, was at the home when officers arrived and was arrested on an outstanding failure to appear warrant.  

The investigation continues by Capt. Coy Wilson.

Assisting at the scene were Chief David Campbell, Jones, Wilson, sergeants Glenn Taylor, Jason Moore and Rick Baker, K-9 Officer Steve Meadors, patrolmen Mike Bisschop, Wade Mitchell and Kenneth Proffitt.

Four arrested in Corbin on drug charges

Four Corbin residents were arrested Thursday on drug charges, according to Corbin Police Public Affairs Officer Major Rob Jones.

The arrests came after three of the men sold LSD to an informant. The drug transaction took place at a 4th Street home.

Those selling the drug were Richard Bush, 24, Tanner Jenkins, 25, and James Morgan, 25. They were each charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

The fourth man, Joey Durant, 28, was arrested at the home for possessing anabolic steriods. He is charged with second-degree possession of a controlled substance.

During a search of the home, police found marijuana, LSD, mushrooms, drug paraphernalia and a chocolate homemade candy laced with THC oil. They also seized a small amount of cash, two semi-automatic handguns and a vehicle.

The four men were jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

Capt. Coy Wilson continues the investigation.

Assisting were Chief David Campbell, Jones, Wilson, sergeants Glenn Taylor, Jason Moore and Rick Baker, K-9 Officer Steve Meadors and patrolmen Mike Bisschop, Wade Mitchell and Kenneth Proffitt.

Accused burglar flees in taxi

An accused burglar who fled in a taxi was arrested Wednesday after the sheriff’s office called the taxi company and asked the driver to pull over and wait for deputies, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The arrest came after Deputy James Sizemore was sent about 1 p.m. to a report of a burglary in progress at a home located about seven miles west of London. When Sizemore arrived, he learned the suspect had already been picked up by the taxi.

Bradley Hill, 28, of Knox County, was arrested about 1:20 p.m. after Sizemore, Sgt. Josh Gaylor and London City Police Officer Ritchie Reynolds found him along North Main Street in London.

Hill was charged with second-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Hill reportedly entered the home of his estranged wife through a basement door then stole cash and an $800 HP laptop computer from his estranged sister-in-law.

Sgt. Greg Poynter assisted at the arrest scene.
