Oklahoma fugitive facing another charge by LSO Detective Loomis

Laurel County, KY - On Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at approximately 9:44 AM Laurel Sheriff's Detective Charlie Loomis charged Robert Leroy Brummitt with a new charge.

Today's charge is based on an investigation conducted by Detective Loomis and Deputy Shannon Jones regarding an occupied residence that had allegedly been intentionally set afire on Sunday night June 26, 2016 at approximately 10:51 PM off Ky 552 near Lily.

A witness stated that Brummitt had called and stated that he was going to set fire to the dwelling and break the windows out of the victim's truck. He also threatened to cut the victim's throat.
