Times-Tribune Staff Report
The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s help in tracking down a “gang” of shoplifters, according to Sheriff John Root.
Deputy Larry Parrott, along with Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter, are investigating several individuals who are shoplifting large quantities of diapers, baby formula, and other items from area Dollar General and Walmart stores.
Due to the large quantities of items being stolen, it is believed that the gang is probably reselling the stolen goods. The thefts have been occurring with great frequency since last week, and continued to occur this past weekend. Root said the gang appears to be comprised of a woman, two teenage boys, and two young children. One of the most recent thefts was captured on video surveillance cameras at a Dollar store on KY 229 south of London.
The suspect vehicle is a maroon Mercury Mountaineer with a Kentucky tag bearing the plate number “613 BEM.”
Law enforcement officials are seeking Cynthia Boone for questioning regarding these thefts. So far, deputies have not been able to locate her or the suspect vehicle, and are asking the public to help with her location. Constable Tim May also has an active case investigation on these thefts.
Anyone with any information on this person of interest is asked to contact the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office at 606-864-6600, or 606-878-7000. Callers can remain anonymous.

Sometimes you have to say ‘I didn’t do it’
“I didn’t do it.” Most of us have heard that sentence at one time or another — law enforcement probably hears those words the most.
