LAWRENCE COUNTY ARREST LIST - MARCH 15-20, 2017

MARCH 21, 2017 - written by WADE QUEEN

After officials at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville quietly complained to local law enforcement to dial back arrests temporarily because the number of inmates incarcerated at the jail was too high, the number of arrests dropped in the region, and the BSRDC brought the number of inmates from 270 to the low 230s last week.

From March 11 thru March 15, there were a total 28 arrested individuals brought to the BSRDC. (6 on the 11th, 9 on the 12th, 5 on the 13th, 5 on the 14th, and 3 on the 15th).

Then business picked up again. On March 16 alone, there were 27 arrested persons brought to the BSRDC, just less than the previous total 5 days put together.

And since March 17 thru March 20th, there were 53 arrested persons booked at the jail. (19 on the 17th, 12 on the 18th, 13 on the 19th, and 9 on the 20th). But arrests are piling up so far today (Tuesday). The inmate incarceration count at the jail has risen significantly once again and now stands at 265 inmates as of 6 p.m. Tuesday evening March 21.

In Lawrence county, in the last six days, there were 13 arrests (plus a 14th arrest was a Lawrence county resident picked up in Johnson county).
