CORBIN —

Sheriff’s dept. seeks four others

By John L. Ross, Staff Writer

Four others were sought Thursday by the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department during the latest drug roundup.

The roundup, dubbed Operation May Time To Stop, brought eight arrests Thursday, and a ninth suspect turned himself in later that day.

Those remaining on the roundup list and their charges include:

— Kristy Baker, 34, of Williamsburg, is wanted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

— James Bell, 43, of Williamsburg, is wanted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

— Felisha Peace, 29, of Williamsburg, is wanted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

— Sammy Smith, 41, of Rockholds, is wanted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. However, during the arrest of Troy Smith, another suspect, deputies learned Sammy Smith was in a serious car crash in November. According to Whitley County Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Jackson, Smith was traveling on Wetstone Road when he “failed to negotiate a curve and hit a tree head-on.”

Troy Smith told deputies that Sammy Smith was still hospitalized but going through rehabilitation. At the time of the crash, deputies believed prescription drugs were likely involved.

If anyone has information about Baker, Bell or Peace, contact the sheriff’s office at 606- 549-6006.

Sheriff Colan Harrell said he wants to get the word out about these other wanted suspects, and said maybe those suspects will turn themselves in.

The soft whistle of a flute floated through the room as audience members listened in awe to tales of the Thunderbolt people. “This land that you’re now sitting on was that of Thunderbolt people,” said Thunderbolt descendant David Owens. Owens and Indian flute player Robert Mullinax stopped at the Laurel County Library Friday night to entertain with spoken legends, folk lore and tales of the bygone Thunderbolts. Audiences were captivated by stories passed down from the Thunderbolt of how things came to be. Tales about fire, pipes and Kentucky — just to name a few — were shared by Ownes over the course of an hour with Mullinax playing behind him.
