Fam­ily foils rob­bery in Oak Hill com­mu­nity

The Covington News - - CRIME - AM­BER PITTMAN apittman@cov­news.com

One man has been ar­rested and an­other is on the run af­ter a home bur­glary in the Oak Hill com­mu­nity Tues­day.

New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Cort­ney Mor­ri­son said that a call came in to 911 around 12:20 p.m., re­port­ing a bur­glary in progress on Covey Lane. A rel­a­tive of the per­son whose house was be­ing robbed had driven by and al­legedly no­ticed 22-year-old Ty­der­ris Olan­der Cash of De­catur and an­other man leav­ing the home.

The fam­ily mem­bers fol­lowed the two men, who were driv­ing a red Ca­maro, up­dat­ing 911 op­er­a­tors on where they were. A deputy from the NCSO at­tempted to turn around to make a traf­fic stop, and the driver saw him and veered off the road. Both men re­port­edly took off on foot, but Cash, who was the pas­sen­ger, was quickly ar­rested, ac­cord­ing to Mor­ri­son.

Deputies are still search­ing for the driver, whose iden­tity they know but were keep­ing un­der wraps at press time.

Ac­cord­ing to Mor­ri­son, long guns, pis­tols and cross bows were taken in the break-in.

Cash has been charged with bur­glary and ob­struc­tion in the case.

Odd be­hav­ior

A Cony­ers woman is be­hind bars af­ter re­port- edly at­tempt­ing to un­law­fully fill pre­script ion nar­cotics un­der an alias in Cov­ing­ton.

It all started on July 13 when a woman, later iden­ti­fied as Kim­berly Beth Hunter, 46, called the Kroger phar­macy on Salem Road and was at­tempt­ing to give pre­scrip­tion in­for­ma­tion over the phone. The phar­ma­cist thought it was odd, and when she came in to claim the pre­scrip­tion, he re­port­edly asked her for her ID.

Ac­cord­ing to New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Cort­ney Mor­ri­son, Hunter told the phar­ma­cist her ID was in her car and left the store.

He fol­lowed her and was able to get her tag in­for­ma­tion as she left the park­ing lot.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors sub­se­quently de­ter­mined that Hunter re­port­edly filled five dif­fer­ent pre­scrip­tions (that they can prove) un­der two sep­a­rate aliases — never us­ing her real name — at mul­ti­ple Kroger stores.

She was ar­rested and charged with five counts of un­law­ful man­u­fac­ture, de­liv­ery, etc., of a con­trolled sub­stance and one count of ob­tain­ing or at­tempt­ing to ob­tain danger­ous drugs by fraud.
