A joint effort between multiple local law enforcement agencies led to the arrest of three Louisville residents in Grayson County on Monday, Oct. 17.
At approximately 3:10 a.m. on Monday, Grayson County Central Dispatch received a call of a truck wreck on Highway 224 near the Western Kentucky Parkway.
According to Leitchfield Police Department (LPD) Detective Kevin Smith, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) responded to the accident and discovered the vehicle, a U-Haul pickup truck, had backed into a ditch, and the GCSO called for assistance for the driver.
After the U-Haul was out of the ditch, the responding deputy was following it on the Western Kentucky Parkway when the U-Haul broke down near the 111 mile marker, Smith said.
As a courtesy, the deputy transported the driver and two passengers of the U-Haul to a gas station for assistance, said Smith.
Later, at 6:08 a.m., the LPD received a call of a male subject looking in cars and checking the doors to see if they were locked.
When officers made contact with the male subject, they determined he was one of the three individuals involved in the earlier car accident in the Clarkson area, Smith said.
“Since no known crime had been committed, he was advised to leave the area,” said Smith.
Then, at 7:02 a.m., Dispatch received a call about a suspicious vehicle parked on North Main Street.
Responding officers then made contact with the same U-Haul pickup truck—occupied by two females—that had been involved in the earlier incident, according to Smith.
Law enforcement contacted U-Haul because the rental agreement for the pickup was for one day and was several days past due, Smith said.
The vehicle was impounded, and the two female subjects, Lashae J. Board, 24, and Sonshale Stoner, 28, both of Louisville, were arrested and charged with Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, said Smith.
Board and Stoner were transported to the Grayson County Detention Center without incident, and the U-Haul pickup was also returned to U-Haul without incident.
Finally, at approximately 9:28 a.m., Dispatch began receiving multiple calls of a male subject walking in the middle of the roadway on Highway 62 East.
The Clarkson Police Department made contact with the subject, whom was determined to be the other passenger of the U-Haul pickup truck involved in the earlier incidents, Smith said.
The male subject, Joshua Richard W. Clark, 24, of Louisville, was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct, 2nd Degree, and transported to the Grayson County Detention Center without incident, according to Smith.
No other information relating to these arrests has been released.
