Law enforcement recovers stolen goods, arrests suspect
In Jan. 8 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Reporter

Local law enforcement have been busy over the past few days working criminal cases involving burglary, receiving stolen property, fleeing the scene of an accident and marijuana possession, according to deputies with the Russell County Sheriff's Office.

On Sunday night, 38-year-old  Randall Scott Conner of Jamestown was arrested after deputies performed two search warrants on his home resulting in the recovery of a large quantity of items that had been recently stolen, according to Deputy Nick Bertram.

Bertram said Conner was charged with first degree burglary, receiving stolen property of more than  $300 and receiving a stolen firearm. Conner was taken to the Russell County Jail.

The sheriff's office received information on the theft case, which Bertram had been working on.

He said the theft report was taken for Guy and Debbie Huelat of Jamestown. Deputies gained enough evidence to obtain a search warrant for Conner's residence.

Upon executing the warrant, the reported stolen items were located inside the residence, according to Deputy Clete McAninch.

Some of the stolen items that were recovered include two IBM laptop computers, Ipods, Ipod equipment, binoculars, several bottles of wine, a rifle, several DVD's, and GPS tracking device.

Bertram said roughly $13,000 worth of items were taken from the Huelat residence. Around $8,000 worth of the items were initially recovered.

He said some of the items still missing include personal documents and three guns, but the majority of items were recovered. The theft occurred between Dec. 22 and Dec. 29 in Jamestown.

The investigation is ongoing and  more arrests in the case are possible, pending inventory, according to Bertram.

Assisting Bertram in the investigation and in the execution of the search warrants were deputies Clete McAninch and Lee Smith and Jamestown Police Lt. Tony King.

Also, a hit and run incident on Monday evening sent one woman to the local hospital with injuries and another to the Russell County Jail.

The collision occurred on Geneva Drive in Russell County just before 6:30 p.m., according to Deputy Tim Pierce with the sheriff's department.

A southbound 1988 Ford operated by Pamela Murray, 55, collided in a curve she failed to negotiate with a northbound 1996 Buick being operated by Diana Mings, 51, of Russell Springs.

Murray's vehicle collided with the driver's side front end of the Mings vehicle.

"(Murray) then fled the scene and went to her residence in the Airport Rd. Apartments where she was caught shortly thereafter by law enforcement," Pierce said. "She was arrested for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and possession of marijuana."

Pierce said an anonymous tip led authorities to the apartments where Murray was located. Murray was lodged in the Russell County Jail.

After first refusing medical treatment at the scene, Mings was later taken by private vehicle to Russell County Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Pierce was assisted by the Jamestown Police Department and the Kentucky State Police.

The state police also just released their activity report for last month.

There were 43 traffic accidents investigated by the KSP working in the Post 15 area in the 11 counties of Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Marion, Metcalfe, Monroe, Russell, Taylor and Washington.
