Among those indicted are the following individuals:

·      Erik J. Sanders, 18, of Union Church Road in Columbia, on charges of first-degree burglary and theft of a firearm. The charges stem from an incident in which Sanders was arrested in connection with a break-in at Big Al’s Gun Shop on Fairview Road.

According to a report from the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office, the burglary occurred on Saturday, Oct. 14, and Sanders was arrested in a sting operation on Tuesday, Oct. 17.

The TCSO report states that several firearms—a total of 16—were seized during the operation. Bond was set at $10,000 full cash. He is to have no contact with the complaining witness, no violations of the law, and no use of drugs or alcohol.

·      Kori Posey, 32, of William E. Lobb Drive in Greensburg, on charges of promoting contraband, first degree, and possession of a controlled substance-second degree, drug unspecified. Posey was arrested after an investigation by Kentucky State Police in October.

The nine-month investigation involved the illegal distribution of more than 1,000 buprenorphine, which is sold under the brand name Subutex as well as suboxone (when combined with naloxone), which is used to treat opioid addiction.

It is a prescription medication, and according to a release from the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Posey allegedly fraudulently obtained these drugs in four counties by using other people’s identities. Investigators from Kentucky State Police confirmed that the four counties in which the prescriptions were used were Taylor, Adair, Marion, and Hardin counties.

She faced 20 counts of obtaining a controlled substance without a patient/provider relationship, 10 counts of identity theft, and a second-degree drug trafficking charge, in addition to a third-degree drug trafficking charge from a previous indictment.

Bond was set at $5,000 full cash, according to the most recent indictment.

Conner left the scene of that incident but was apprehended a short time later near the intersection of KY 70 and KY 76. Bond was set at 900,000 cash, and he is to have no contact with the victim.
