Lawrence County’s Most Wanted

Published 2:45pm Monday, November 25, 2013

The Lawrence County Adult Probation Agency had its hands full last week following up on leads, which led to more arrests from the Most Wanted list.

On Nov. 18, Jason Shope, on probation for a trafficking in drugs conviction, was taken into custody thanks to a phone tip.

“A caller gave us a tip on a vehicle and location on State Route 93,” Chief Carl Bowen II said. “I go and sure enough there he is. I arrested him without incident.”

Arrested Nov. 19 was Michelle Curry, 32. On probation for a conviction of three counts of theft, Curry made the Most Wanted list on Nov. 18.

“Chief Eric Spurlock of Coal Grove and his officers had seen her and they worked it out amongst themselves to pick her up for us,” Bowen said. “I appreciate them doing that for sure.”

With the help of U.S. Marshals, Meahgan Russell, 28, was arrested on Nov. 21. She is on probation for a conviction of three counts of fourth-degree aggravated trafficking in drugs.

Early on Nov. 22, Bowen, ADA officer Jonathan Sexton and Sgt. Randy Goodall with the sheriff’s office arrested Jason Sizemore.

“Sgt. Goodall knew the whereabouts of Sizemore,” Bowen said. “We went out and took care of that and picked him up off State Route 93. Kudos to Sgt. Goodall. He made that one happen.”

Bowen said tips are still coming in on other probation offenders and the village officers are also getting involved.

“The villages are getting involved, the sheriff’s office. The communication is just awesome right now,” Bowen said.
