Domestic complaint leads to warrant arrest

Staff Writer


Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Larry Parrott, Daniel Grigsby, and Tyler Morris were dispatched to a possible domestic violence complaint on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 10 p.m. on Locust Grove Road, 10 miles west of London.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they observed a male outside the house who was obviously under the influence. After an investigation, they arrested Robert C. Mills, 28, of Camp Ground Court, Corbin, charging him with public intoxication-controlled substances.

Deputies also tried to get a response at the door to the house, and finally had a female come to the door who had an obvious cut on her arm. Deputies notified Laurel 9-1-1 to contact Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County respond to the scene to transport her to Saint Joseph London for treatment.

Deputies learned this victim allegedly threw a fit, ran her arm through a glass window, and the injury was not the result of a domestic argument.

As deputies continued their investigation, they located a third person in the house hiding in a closet. Following an investigation, it was determined she was a wanted person. Adrienne Baker, 20, of Laura Lane, Corbin, was arrested and charged on two outstanding warrants of arrest from Laurel County for receiving stolen property. It was alleged that she stole a GPS from a vehicle and pawned it on one warrant; and, on the other, it was alleged she stole a breaker box and some wiring from a storage building, taking it to a business for a cash refund.

Mills and Baker were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.

Deputies noted the house had no electricity, and did not appear to be lived in. Needles were found lying around inside. The homeowner was not present. An investigation is continuing.
