Monday night a busy one for authorities
In Oct. 28 Issue

A Russell County woman led authorities on a high-speed chase Monday night that ended in a crash and multiple charges, according to Deputy Clete McAninch with the Russell County Sheriff's Office.

The chase began sometime after 11 p.m. in Adair County when Columbia police attempted to stop the Chevrolet Impala after noticing it leaving a known drug dealer's home, according to police. The Impala's license plate was not lit, warranting the stop, police said.

When the vehicle did not stop, police followed the vehicle east on Ky. 80 at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.

Adair County authorities reported losing sight of the vehicle near the Russell Springs city limits, but then moments later the Impala wrecked on Hales Highway near the intersection with Ky. 92 at Esto.  

After arriving at the scene, officers found the vehicle empty and a search of the area began by responding officials.  Around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, more than a half hour after the wreck, the driver was found by McAninch in a field of tall grass off of L. Gaskin Road.  

Arrested was Heaven Sutton, 23, of Russell Springs. Sutton declined treatment by Russell County EMS, Sutton was taken by Columbia police officers to the Adair County Jail where she was lodged on charges of DUI, reckless driving, fleeing and evading police and other various traffic offenses.

Earlier Monday night a Jamestown man was arrested on felony drug trafficking and other charges, according to Deputy Sheriff Nick Bertram.

The arrest came just before 10:30 p.m. Monday when Jeffrey Foley, 49, was taken into police custody on Geneva Drive after Bertram had blue-lighted Foley near the U.S 127 and Airport Rd. intersection with Foley driving to Geneva Dr. before stopping. Authorities had received a DUI complaint on the 1994 Dodge pickup just moments earlier.

Bertram said Foley was seen throwing items from his truck while traveling on Airport Rd. and turning onto Geneva Dr.  

The items were later recovered and included 10.5 ounces of marijuana inside a plastic.

Foley also had $774 and a check for $300 on him, according to Bertram.

Foley was charged with trafficking in marijuana over eight ounces but less than five pounds, DUI, fleeing and evading police and criminal littering. He was taken to the Casey County Jail.
