LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
But when deputies and the SRU arrived at the home, no one answered the door, even though deputies identified Fields’ truck parked at the home and footprints in the snow leading from the vehicle to the front door. The SRU unit gained entry into the home, where they discovered Fields hiding in a crawl space in the attic. The fugitive continued his flight from justice, however, refusing to come out of his hiding spot and forcing deputies to physically remove him. Fields continued to resist being taken into custody, struggling with law enforcement during his arrest.
Fields was charged with the theft from A&B Quick Stop and receiving stolen property of the metal items from Twin Branch Road.
Kazee was also in the home during this incident, and he was arrested on charges of theft as well as hindering prosecution or apprehension for refusing to open the door to law enforcement.
Scalf and Murray were added to the indictment during the presentation of evidence to the Laurel grand jury. All four were placed under a $10,000 fully secured bond and scheduled for a hearing in Laurel Circuit Court on March 24.
An indictment is an accusation only and does not imply guilt or innocence.
