Vehicle break-in lands man in jail

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Roger Ayers, 62, of Corbin, was arrested after he was seen breaking into a vehicle parked in the Corbin Walmart parking lot on Monday morning around 11:43. Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy John Inman and Deputy Josh Scott went to the scene, 12 miles south of London, and placed Ayers under arrest, with the assistance of Constable Tim May. Ayers put up a brief struggle with deputies, resulting in charges of theft by unlawful taking, first-degree criminal trespassing, resisting arrest, first-degree criminal mischief, and first-degree disorderly conduct. He was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center following his arrest.

Ayers was just released from jail on Nov. 9 on charges of third-degree criminal trespassing and served with a bench warrant, after his arrest in the early morning hours of Nov. 7. He spent nearly four hours in jail on Sept. 19 — again for third-degree criminal trespassing charges, as well as two arrests in August. In April of this year, Ayers spent seven days in the Laurel County Detention Center for disorderly conduct, third-degree assault against a police officer, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and menacing.
