Fugitive returned to Laurel County


It was a long drive for Laurel County Sheriff’s authorities, Luther Arnold and Don Banks, but their trip to Goldsboro, N.C., brought a Laurel County fugitive to face justice.

The purpose of the trip was to transport 34-year-old Ronnie Lockaby, formerly of the Lily community, back to Laurel County to face numerous charges. Lockaby had been held by authorities in Wayne County, N.C., until local deputies could arrive to transport him back to face his charges in Kentucky. Lockaby was wanted for four warrants that included first-degree bail jumping, being a first-degree persistent felony offender, manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; second-degree forgery, theft of identity without another’s consent, giving an officer a false name or address, operating a motor vehicle under the influence, resisting arrest, theft by deception, and contempt of court. According to records from the Laurel County Detention Center, charges date back to 2008, 2009, and 2010 and include two separate indictments by a Laurel grand jury in 2010.

Ronnie Lockaby was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
