Wanted sex offender captured


A man wanted on an indictment warrant for sex-related charges was arrested on Friday afternoon.

Stacy Obrien Savage, 42, of Blackwater Church Road in London, was taken into custody at his residence just after noon by Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective/U.S. Marshall Warrant Task Force Officer Jason Back, Deputy Kevin Berry and Kentucky Probation and Parole Officer Pam Bentley.

Savage was named in a 19-count indictment by a Laurel grand jury on Friday, Mar. 21. He is accused of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and incest for offenses that occurred between Jan. 2010 and Sept. 2013 against a child who was only 11 years old when the crimes took place. The indictment claims the rape, sodomy, sexual abuse and incest happened on at least four different occasions during that time frame. Savage also assisted in providing methamphetamines to the child.

A second victim was named in the indictment as well — a 14-year-old — who was subjected to sexual contact between Sept. and Oct. 2013, initiating another charge of first-degree sexual abuse.

He remains incarcerated in the Laurel County Detention Center, with no bond allowed. He has a court date of April 18 to answer to the indictment charges.
