On October 1, 2016, Deputy Brian Hensley responded to a Maple Creek Road residence in reference to a trespassing complaint.
Upon arrival, Dep. Hensley made contact with a female inside the residence who stated her name was Ashley Harmon but could not provide proper identification.
When Dep. Hensley indicated that he believed she was providing a false name, the female fled on foot. Dep. Hensley pursued the woman through a briar thicket and was able to apprehend her.
With assistance from Whitley County E911 dispatchers and Whitley Co. Detention Center employees, the female was determined to be Tabitha Harmon, 25, of Corbin.
After learning her true identity, Dep. Hensley was notified that she had three warrants for her arrest, including one in a case for trafficking in methamphetamine. Harmon was also charged with giving an officer a false name, fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest.
She was lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
