Cops & Courts

  • Simpsonville Police seeks ID in theft

    The Simpsonville Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying and locating someone wanted in connection with a theft from the SAKS off 5th store at the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass.

    On March 18 between 7:30-7:45 p.m., several hundred dollars worth of merchandise was stolen from the shop. Police say a small compact car, possibly grey or white, is involved in the theft.

  • Shelby has four nonrelated fires in one night

    There must have been something in the water Tuesday night, with four fires – three of them structure fires – from one end of Shelby County to the other, a night that ended with one firefighter breaking his leg.

    The blazes were all non-related, although one family did get displaced, fire officials said, and Milton Peyton, a firefighter with the East 60 Fire Department, broke his leg while working to extinguish a fire on Benson Pike.

  • Kuzmanovic granted shock probation

    A man who applied for shock probation after being incarcerated for nearly two years in connection with the death of a Louisville woman on Interstate 64 in May 2015, has had his request granted.

    Miroslav Kuzmanovic, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter on June 6, 2016, in the death of Doris Wise, 71, who was killed when Kuzmanovic, who was driving a tractor-trailer, struck her 2006 Chevy in the rear.

  • Shock probation in works for Kuzmanovic

    A man who has been incarcerated for nearly two years in connection with the death of a Louisville woman on I-64 in May 2015 has applied for shock probation.

    Miroslav Kuzmanovic, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter on June 6, 2016, in the death of Doris Wise, 71, who was killed when Kuzmanovic, who was driving a tractor-trailer, struck her 2006 Chevy in the rear.

    Neither he nor his attorneys, Andrew Gailor and Rob Eggert of Louisville, appeared in court for the request.

  • Hearing to be scheduled in embezzlement case

    Jenny King of Shelby County, a former longtime finance officer for Shelby County Fiscal Court, charged with embezzling more than $23,000, could appear in court in December for a disposition hearing.

    King, who was charged with stealing the money from the county’s general fund over an 18-month period from April 2013 to December 2014, was scheduled for a disposition hearing Monday, but the hearing was postponed due to a docket pass, which occurs occasionally when the docket becomes too full.

    Those cases that were postponed will be given a court date soon.

  • Jury duty scam rampant again

    Michele Wolfe can breathe a sigh of relief now that the ordeal is over.

    She had almost fallen prey to the widely circulating jury duty scam, which would have robbed her of $2,000.

    “This guy asked me to go to the bank and get my money and then he would meet me at the sheriff’s department,” she said. “I mean, he gave me court numbers, he gave me the court date, I mean he gave it to me all. I was like, ‘Wow, OK.’ Everything seemed up front, it seemed for real.”

  • Police seeking help finding man exposing himself

    Police are appealing to the public to locate a man who exposed himself to a woman near downtown Shelbyville Monday afternoon.

    Kentucky State Police Trooper Bernice Napier said the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. near Washington and Alton streets.

    Napier said that when they responded to the call, the woman said the man followed her down Washington Street then got out of his car near Alton Road and exposed his genitals to her.

  • New cops on the beat

    Three new police officers are on the job at the Shelbyville Police Department; all fresh from the police academy.

    The three new officers graduated from the academy on a Friday and began at Shelbyville P.D. the following Monday, said Shelbyville Police Chief Danny Goodwin.

    “They all graduated from the police academy on October seventh, and they have started their training with us,” said Goodwin.

    The academy consists of 23 weeks of training at Eastern Kentucky University.

  • Anglin sentencing postponed again

    A sentencing hearing for a former Shelby County Public Schools payroll manager charged with embezzling more than a half million dollars has been delayed a second time.

    Benita Anglin was originally scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 19, but Judge Charles Hickman rescheduled it for Oct. 21 at the request of her attorney, Matthew Pippin, who said that Anglin was ill.

    Sentencing has now been scheduled – for the third time – for Nov. 7.

    It is not clear why the event has been postponed yet again.

  • King has court date Friday in embezzlement case

    Jenny King of Shelby County, a former longtime finance officer for Shelby County Fiscal Court, charged with embezzling more than $23,000, will appear in court Friday for a disposition hearing.

    King is charged with stealing the money from the county’s general fund over an 18-month period from April 2013 to December 2014.
