Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

On Aug. 7, the Chero­kee County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to a call re­port­ing a man tres­pass­ing on prop­erty in the Mud Creek area. The sus­pect had used a stolen boat to ac­cess the prop­erty. Deputies and in­ves­ti­ga­tors later lo­cated the man, Ken­neth A. Fer­gu­son, 45, and items of stolen prop­erty.

Ac­cord­ing to Chero­kee County Sher­iff Jeff Shaver, in­ves­ti­ga­tors were able to link him to sev­eral other bur­glar­ies and thefts in the area over the past few weeks. Search war­rants were ex­e­cuted at two res­i­dences on Tues­day, where more stolen prop­erty was re­cov­ered. Il­le­gal drugs were also dis­cov­ered in the pos­ses­sion of two oth­ers, Kim T. Kel­ley, 46, of Pied­mont and Jen­nifer L. Dent­mon, 35, of Cen­tre and both were ar­rested and charged with un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance and un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia.

Fer­gu­son is charged with third- de­gree bur­glary, break­ing and en­ter­ing of a ve­hi­cle, first-de­gree theft of prop­erty, and two counts of fourth-de­gree theft. All three sus­pects re­main in the Chero­kee County De­ten­tion Cen­ter, Sher­iff Shaver said.
