Traffic stop leads to theft of money from pop machines arrest.  Early Friday morning Officer Paul Perkins stopped a 1991 blue Ford Taurus for an obstructed windshield violation.  When he checked the operators drivers license Senior Communications Officer Jackie Mayberry went one step further to check into the individuals background and discovered that he had several convictions for breaking into pop machines.  Senior Telecommunicator Mayberry alerted Officer Perkins of this information which led to Officer Perkins obtaining consent to search the vehicle where he discovered several hundred dollars in change and one dollar bills as well as tools used to open pop machines. Arrested were:


Gregory Doan 43 of Annville, KY 

and Susan Miller 49 of East Bernstadt , KY.   

Both were charged with Possession of Burglary Tools. Further investigation into these individuals by Officer Perkins and Assistant Chief Wayne Lewis led to Arrest Warrants being obtained for the pop machine break-ins that occurred last month at West Liberty IGA.

In connection Sheriff Mickey Whitt is also investigating a pop machine break in believed to have occurred early Friday morning at Allen Tire Center just west of city limits that reportedly netted thieves  around 25 dollars.  This theft was reported by Deputy Jailer Lowell Adkins who had gone to check area pop machines after the pair was arrested.  Sheriff Whitt and Deputy Jailer Adkins also assisted Officer Perkins in his investigation.

Thanks to Senior Communications Officer Jackie Mayberry, Patrolman Paul Perkins, Morgan County Sheriff Mickey Whitt and Morgan County Deputy Jailer Lowell Adkins for a job well done.
