Final two arrested in crime ring case

-A A +A
By Calen McKinney

The remaining two indictments in a crime ring case involving seven Campbellsville residents and a Greensburg man have been unsealed.

A Taylor Circuit Court judge unsealed the indictments last week.

A grand jury may seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.

Indicted were Brittany L. Cox, 20, of 230 Eads St. in Campbellsville and Ronald Neal Harmon Jr., 38, of 529 Oakes Road in Greensburg.

Cox and Harmon were charged with being part of a criminal syndicate from July 1 to Aug. 28, which, according to the indictment, was allegedly formed to distribute controlled substances.

The charge is a Class B felony, punishable by as much as 20 years in prison.

The indictment states that other people who have not been indicted may have been involved in the crimes.

Cox and Harmon were also charged with the use and investment of drug-related income, a Class D felony, punishable by as much as five years in prison.

Cox was also charged with being a second-degree persistent felony offender. That charge could increase any sentence she might receive.

Bond for Cox and Harmon was set at $40,000 and $30,000 cash, respectively.

If convicted, Cox and Harmon could be sentenced to as much as 25 years in prison.

Indictments against six people charged along with Cox and Harmon were unsealed early this month.

Those whose indictments were unsealed earlier this month are:

- Andre Gurley, 24, of 816 N. Columbia Ave. in Campbellsville.

- Amy Watson, 20, of 816 N. Columbia Ave. in Campbellsville.

- Jeffrey Gurley, 22, of 816 N. Columbia Ave. in Campbellsville.

- Duane L. Thompson, 23, of 132 Ray Court in Campbellsville.

- Claude B. Huckaby, 56, also of 132 Ray Court in Campbellsville.

- Abraham Gurley, 21, of 370 Ray Court in Campbellsville.

All six defendants were charged with being part of a criminal syndicate.

The Gurleys, Huckaby and Watson were also charged with the use and investment of drug-related income gained from the sale of controlled substances.

Jeffrey Gurley was also charged with being a second-degree persistent felony offender. The charge could also increase any sentence he might receive.

If convicted, the Gurleys, Watson and Huckaby could each be sentenced to as much as 25 years in prison and Thompson as much as 20.

Campbellsville Police Officer Shannon Wilson investigated.

- An indictment is a legal accusation only. It does not establish guilt.
