KSP: PULASKI COUNTY MAN FACING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES

 

The Kentucky State Police (KSP) Electronic Crime Branch located and arrested William Brandon Combs, 27, on charges related to a child sexual abuse material investigation.

 

Combs was interviewed and arrested as the result of an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigation. The KSP Electronic Crime Branch began the investigation after discovering the suspect communicating and exchanging sexually explicit images with juveniles online.

 

The investigation resulted in a search warrant at 134 Tateville Antioch Rd, Burnside, on October 5, 2021. Equipment used to facilitate the crime was seized and taken to KSP’s forensic laboratory for examination. The investigation is ongoing.

 

Combs is currently charged with one count of promoting a minor under the age of 16 in a sexual performance. This charge is a Class-B felony punishable by ten to twenty years in prison. Combs is also charged with five counts of possessing matter portraying a minor over the age of 12 in a sexual performance. This charge is a Class-D felony punishable by one to five years in prison. Combs was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.

 

The Kentucky Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force is comprised of more than twenty-six local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The mission of the ICAC Task Force, created by the United States Department of Justice and administrated by the Kentucky State Police, is to assist state and local law enforcement agencies in developing a response to cyber enticement and child sexual abuse material investigations. This support encompasses forensic and investigative components, training and technical assistance, victim services, prevention, and community education. The ICAC program was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the internet, the proliferation of child sexual abuse material, and the heightened online activity of predators searching for unsupervised contact with underage victims.

KYTC ISSUES 'ANTLER ALERT'

 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is issuing an "Antler Alert" to remind motorists that it’s peak season for highway collisions involving deer and other wildlife on the move.

“Shorter days and cooler nights, October through December, bring a noticeable increase in highway collisions involving deer,” KYTC Secretary Jim Gray said. “Drivers should be vigilant at all times, but the autumn presents a special challenge for drivers, with deer and other wildlife increasingly on the move, often at night.”

Highway crash rates involving wildlife increase sharply in October, November and December with mating seasons, hunting seasons and fall harvests, which will prompt deer to roam in search of new hiding places and sources of food.

In Kentucky, 2,091 highway crashes involving deer were reported to police in 2020, according to a data base maintained by Kentucky State Police. Of that total, 70 occurred in Pulaski County, Casey (6), Adair (8), Boyle (7), Lincoln (7), Marion (19), Russell (14), & Taylor (41).

A complete list is here.

KYTC offers these driving tips to help improve safety:

  • Slow down immediately upon spotting a deer crossing the roadway; they tend to travel in groups.
  • Don’t swerve to avoid a deer, which can result in a more serious crash with an oncoming vehicle or roadside object.
  • In the event of a crash, keep both hands on the wheel and apply brakes steadily until stopped.
  • Always wear a seat belt.
  • Keep headlights on bright unless other vehicles are approaching.
  • Eliminate distractions while driving: Phones down!
  • Drive defensively, constantly scanning the roadside, especially at dawn and dusk when deer are most active.

Motorists are asked to report all deer-vehicle collisions to police. KYTC traffic engineers use the crash data to aid in placing deer-crossing warning signs and other safety measures.

LIBERTY MAN ARRESTED AFTER SCUFFLE WITH POLICE

 

A Liberty man was arrested Sunday morning after callers reported a man walking in the roadway with a bottle and yelling at passers by.


Deputy Geoffery Brown, with Casey County Sheriff's Office, responded to Contown Road, about 7 miles south of Liberty, where he encountered 42 year old Ronnie Dale Lee, Jr.  Mr. Lee was staggering in the middle of the road, carrying a bottle of vodka. Deputy Brown noted Lee had slurred speech, and admitted he'd been drinking. He also had a glass meth pipe in his pocket. 


When the Deputy told Mr. Lee he was under arrest, he became outraged and started screaming and resisting arrest. Lee reportedly kicked Deputy Brown several times. Pepper spray was used to subdue the suspect. Lee asked to be transported to the Casey County Hospital, where he then refused treatment.


Lee was lodged in the Casey County Jail on charges of Alcohol Intoxication in a Public Place, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct-2nd Degree, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, & Assault-3rd Degree (Police Officer).

WCSO: BIGGEST DRUG BUST IN WAYNE CO. HISTORY

 

According to Wayne County Sheriff Tim Catron a joint undercover narcotic investigation has resulted in one of the biggest methamphetamine and heroin/fentanyl seizure in Wayne County history.

 

The joint operation was conducted by the Wayne County Sheriff Office and the Lake Cumberland Drug Task Force Agency. On September 29, 2021, Lake Cumberland Drug Task Force Director Wayne Conn and Wayne County Sheriff Office Deputies Derek Dennis and Jerry Coffey were observing for a vehicle coming to Hicks Grocery on East Kentucky 90 that was believed to be coming there to sell illegal narcotics.  This location was known to be where suspected drug dealers would meet to sell illegal narcotics. At 6:41 pm the suspected vehicle entered the parking lot, and a vehicle traffic stop was conducted. After the driver and his passenger exited the vehicle Deputy Derek Dennis deployed his Deputy K-9 Unit Dunya for a free air sniff around the vehicle. Deputy Dunya alerted on the driver’s door area. Deputies Dennis, Coffey and Director Conn then searched the vehicle. The search resulted in the seizure of a stolen loaded 40 caliber Glock handgun, 2 pounds and 9.58 ounces of suspected methamphetamine, 56 grams of suspected cocaine, 67 grams of suspected heroin/fentanyl mix, 50.5 grams of suspected pressed fentanyl pills, 3 suspected hydrocodone tablets, 1 suspected suboxone tablet, several plastic baggies and a set of digital scales.

The estimated street value of the seized items is $164,000.00.

 

THE OWNERS OF HICKS GROCERY OR THEIR EMPLOYEES ARE NOT ASSOCATIED WITH THIS OR ANY OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIVITES.

 

Deputies Dennis, Coffey and Director Conn was assisted at the scene by Sheriff Catron and a United States DEA Agent (unnamed).
