A home on Gilgal Road was burglarized during the afternoon or early evening of Monday, Nov. 19.

Angelus Saggus, 1715 Gilgal Road, called Carroll County Dispatch at 6:46 p.m. to report her home had been broken into. Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy Clay Cable responded.

Joseph Saggus, who also lives at the residence with his mother, reported that his room was ransacked. He said more than 100 narcotic pills, a necklace and other miscellaneous items were taken.

Trucks targeted.A tree-trimming company that parks its trucks at Prestonville Shell has been the victim of theft for the second time in about six months.

Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman responded to the theft report at 7:26 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19. Missing items included safety harnesses and helmets.

Tip leads to arrest. An anonymous tip through the sheriff’s website led to the arrest of a Carrollton man wanted for violating his probation.

Ronald Williamson, 26, 120 Sixth St., Carrollton, was wanted for a probation violation after he failed a drug test. His original charge was first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense (methamphetamine).

Kinman and Deputy J.T. Shaw found Williamson at  1644 Stafford Ridge Road in response to the tip.

No one answered the door, and Kinman called for backup from Kentucky State Police K-9 Unit Ryan Gosser. The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office also assisted on the scene.

The homeowner gave law enforcement permission to enter;  Williamson came out of hiding and surrendered to police. Williamson was staying in the house with a friend. 

“The tip line is a good asset to us,” Kinman said. “It does work and we check it daily.”
