KSP, sheriff busy with weekend crime

Dec. 5, 2012 —     Carter County Deputy Sheriff Greg Gillum was dispatched Sunday to an injury accident near Grayson which resulted in four persons being transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Huntington.

    In the course of his investigation, Gillum found a methamphetamine lab under the vehicle involved.

    He called in the Kentucky State Police meth lab team for assistance. The case is still under investigation and arrests are expected

    In an unrelated incident, the KSP in Ashland received a tip on Friday concerning a suspected methamphetamine lab at a residence located on Rachel Street in Olive Hill.

    Upon arrival, troopers located a methamphetamine lab, several precursors used to manufacture methamphetamine and several items of drug paraphernalia.

    April D. Kiser, 29, of Olive Hill, was arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine first offense and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    She is currently lodged in the Carter County detention Center. The investigation is ongoing by Trooper Tye Chavies.

    State police also made an arrest Saturday stemming from a burglary case originally reported earlier.

 On Oct. 21, KSP in Ashland received a complaint involving the theft of a small Honda motorcycle, valued at more than $500, from a residence on Haney Lane in Carter County.

    The motorcycle was eventually recovered at a local pawnshop and returned to the owner.

    Shane Haney, 26, of Olive Hill, was arrested Saturday and charged with third degree burglary. He is currently lodged in the Carter County Detention Center.

    Trooper David Boarman is handling the investigation.
