LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott arrested a Vickie Blanton, 50, or of Laurel Whitley Road, Corbin, on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 5:43 p.m. at Walmart near Corbin in southern Laurel County. Walmart’s loss prevention team had detained Blanton who was allegedly observed concealing clothing items in her purse.
