Woman runs, gets additional charges

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A woman who ran from police is facing multiple charges related to her unauthorized flight.

Adrienne L. Baker, 19, of Laura Lane in London, was wanted on charges of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property as well as another warrant for possession of marijuana and theft by unlawful taking.

On the first charge, Baker allegedly took property belonging to another person, then pawned it for money. In the second case, she did not comply with a court order to take drug tests on three different occasions and  missed a required office visit.

With those charges hanging over her head, Baker decided to run away when Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at her home to answer a domestic complaint around 3:49 p.m. on Saturday.

Baker ran into a wooded area behind the residence, with deputies in close pursuit. The chase continued for nearly one-half mile, over rough terrain and crossing four sets of barbed wire fences, a large creek and a briar thicket. Deputy Robbie Grimes completely ruined a uniform including shirt, pants and shoes during the chase.

Baker was taken into custody and charged with fleeing and evading police on foot, resisting arrest, public intoxication of a controlled substance, and third-degree criminal mischief due to the damage to Grimes’ uniform.

She was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center where she was held under a $500 cash bond for theft charges and a $2,500 cash bond for fleeing and evading.
