  • Shelby County Sheriff's Reports June 22

    DUI

     

    Tina M. Njuguna, 34, of 13400 Spring Villa Court No. 101 in Louisville was arrested May 7 on Shelbyville Road east of Taylorsville Road and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, first offense, careless driving, no license in possession and failure to maintain required insurance, first offense.

  • Alcohol suspected in crash

    Police are looking into whether alcohol and speed were factors in a single car crash Friday night that left a Shelbyville man in critical condition.

    Jason Rice, a detective with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, said that John White III, 33, lost control of his car on Benson Road near Guist Creek Lake shortly before 11 p.m., running off the road and landing upside down in a ditch.

    “When we arrived, we found him trapped inside the vehicle unconscious,” Rice said.

  • Signs disappearing from Shelby County roadways

    Ever stopped to ask for directions?

    Now finding one’s destination is becoming more and more difficult in Shelby County. The reason?

    People are stealing road and street signs. They are disappearing every day, not just one at time, but in droves, officials say.

    Road Supervisor Carl Henry brought up the issue last November, and at Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting, magistrates expressed concern that the problem was not dissipating, but growing.

  • EARLIER: Murder suspect arrested in Arizona

    Six months after the murder of an Anderson County woman left her cats homeless in the care of her vet in Shelby County, the man wanted in connection with her death has been apprehended in Arizona.

    A Kentucky State Police press release said Terrance Cram was taken into custody Wednesday in Goodyear, Ariz.

    Cram, 49, had been indicted by an Anderson County Grand Jury on June 7, charging him with the murder of Tena McNeely, tampering with physical evidence and fraudulent use of a credit card.

  • Simpsonville is getting a new fire chief

    The bad news is that the Simpsonville Fire Department had to trim its budget a bit, enough to merit cutting out a key position, that of administrative assistant.

    The good news is that Fire Chief Walter Jones has found a solution to the problem.

    He has stepped down as fire chief but will stay on as administrative assistant, a position that his wife, Kathy, had occupied.

    In his place, Assistant Chief Ronnie Sowder will step up as part-time fire chief.

  • Dismissal of rape case only temporary

    The case against a man who is in jail on rape and sex abuse charges against children has hit a slight snag, prosecutors say.

    Charges of first-degree rape, three charges of first-degree sodomy and three charges of first-degree sexual abuse against Henry Telles, 25, of Shelbyville, have been dismissed without prejudice.

    But that doesn’t mean he’s off the hook, Shelby County Commonwealth Attorney Laura Donnell said.

    Donnell had to drop the charges against Telles so that he could be re-indicted.

    he reason?

  • Info need to help identify theft suspect

    The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying someone connected with a recent theft in the county.
    Detectives have submitted two photos, one they are describing as “a person of interest,” and the other photo is of the suspect’s vehicle.

    The theft occurred in the early morning hours of June 8 at the Tower Heights Subdivision, east of Shelbyville, and involved a theft from a vehicle.

    A credit card was stolen and was used that same morning, mostly in the Frankfort area.
