Suspicious person arrest


Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott was dispatched to a complaint of a suspicious person at the Dollar Store on Ky. 80, five miles east of London, on Monday, Dec. 16 at 10:05 p.m.  The complaint was that the subject kept coming and going in and out of the business, and was acting strange.

Arrested was: Earl S. Stevens, 40, of Buzzard Road, Manchester, who was charged with public intoxication-controlled substances; resisting arrest; second-degree disorderly conduct; shoplifting; possession of drug paraphernalia;  and third-degree criminal mischief.

When Deputy Parrott arrived at the scene, Stevens had already left, however, he was found about 1/4 mile from the business walking in the road, and was obviously under the influence. Stevens began yelling at Deputy Parrott, and following a brief struggle was arrested.

Investigation revealed Stevens had apparently been taking Roxocet and Lortab, and a needle was discovered in his possession. Also, merchandise belonging to the Dollar Store that had not been paid for were found in Steven’s possession. In addition, when Stevens struggled with Deputy Parrott, he ripped the deputies uniform sleeve, resulting in a criminal mischief charge. The subject was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
