  • Court questions admissibility of new testimony in Roberts case

    The day before the murder trial for Alexander Roberts was set to begin, Circuit Judge John David Seay issued a stay in the trial until March 2, after prosecutors appealed his decision that evidence concerning recent allegations against Roberts was inadmissible.

    Prosecutors say those allegations could amount to a confession.

  • Suspect in high-speed chase had history of fleeing, multiple aliases

    Officials are still working to determine the real name of a man arrested Sunday after he led police on a high-speed chase in a reported stolen car, but believe he is the same man who faces charges for a similar incident in Louisville three months ago.

    He initially refused to give his identity to officers when they arrested him near the Nelson-Marion County line and was booked under John Doe. Police then came to believe him to be Rickie J. Stovall, 30, of New Albany, Ind. But his name might be Larenzo Draper, and he has also said his name was Lorenzo Thompson.

An undercover investigation began in December 2016, resulting in the execution of a search warrant at McIntosh’s Jones Avenue home on Wednesday.

  • BPD will be outgunned no more

    Bardstown Police have long complained that they didn’t have the right weapons to do their jobs. While the “bad guys” had AK-47s and AR-15s, police had shotguns and handguns.

    Thanks to the generosity of some local gun dealers, though, officers will now be able to match their adversaries in firepower.

    Last Tuesday, Matt Schrader and Josh Geron of Bourbon City Firearms delivered a cache of weapons to the Police Department training room.

  • Deputies armed against overdoses

    Nelson County Sheriff’s deputies are now armed to combat one of the fastest growing challenges they face — opioid overdoses.
