ARRESTS: Wanted Female Parole Violator from Burnside and a London, Kentucky Man Located with Drugs During Traffic Stop in Pulaski County

SOMERSET, KY - Sheriff Bobby Jones reports the arrest of two individuals following a late night traffic stop on December 4th, 2023.

On Monday, December 4th, 2023 at approximately 11:39 PM, Deputy Logan Crabtree conducted a traffic stop on a 2007 Pontiac G7 to verify the vehicle had insurance based on information obtained from its license plate.

Upon speaking with the driver of the vehicle, Deputy Crabtree was told she did not have a driver’s license in her possession, but provided a social security number. The social security number given to Deputy Crabtree belonged to a male subject.

The female driver attempted to claim she was the male subject, but when giving the spelling of the name, misspelled her own supposed first name.

SGT Preston Pitman arrived on scene shortly after the initiation of the traffic stop, and after learning of the false identifying information, informed the driver of the criminal act.

The female driver was later identified as Iris Kay Thompson, 52 years of age, Burnside, KY.
