Pedophile Tracking Former Maricopa County, AZ Deputy Arrested

A former Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office deputy has been arrested on child sex charges.

“We uncovered a predator that had never been arrested for incidents that took place years ago and it appears that he found another child to victimize in 2014,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said in a statement.

Michael Valles, 44, was arrested Thursday.

Valles allegedly had sexual contact multiple times with a 14-year-old girl last year. Sexually explicit text messages from Valles were found on the girl’s phone.

Valles is also accused of an unspecified child sex crime in 2011, when he was employed by MCSO. Though he was investigated by his employer at the time, no charges were filed. PCSO said it was later learned Valles still had access to the victim.

Fraud Investigation Tampa Doctor Arrested

An eight-month undercover operation has led to the arrest of Tampa chiropractor Douglas Price.

 

Investigators say he paid patients to come to his clinics in both South Tampa and Winter Haven then filed bogus insurance claims.

 http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

State agents showed up Monday morning at Price’s Davis Island home, knocked and took him into custody. Within minutes another team of law enforcement officers executed a search warrant on his Auburndale clinic.

 

Investigators say they’ve worked undercover since last October building a case involving insurance fraud and patient brokering. He’s accused of paying patients to come to his clinic for treatment, which is illegal.

 

The investigation focused on both Price’s South Tampa practice, which closed six weeks ago, and his Auburndale office, the Florida Pain, Trauma and Injury Clinic.

 

Agents searched the Auburndale office in search of more evidence, including patient and bank records. Officers also arrested one of the employees, Sonya Rivera. She’s accused of setting up the patients and facilitating the scheme.

 

Warrants were issued for two others described as “runners,” people who would collect money from the doctor in exchange for steering patients into his practice.

 

Investigators said Price would pay patients up to $1,000 each. He’s charged with three counts of patient brokering. The others face one count.

 

Next they will comb through the records confiscated at the Auburndale location for more evidence.

 

Investigators also plan to share their findings with the Department of Health, which could take action against Price’s license.

Wrongful Death Investigation at UK Campus

A death investigation on the University of Kentucky campus has left investigators perplexed.

UK police tell us they got a call from a woman who was walking by the former seminary here on Limestone and noticed a body on the roof on one of the buildings.When firefighters arrived they say the young man was already dead.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

They have identified him but are not releasing his name right now. UK police tell us these building are graduate housing and say the man was subleasing the unit from a graduate student who’s out of town.

Police say there are no indications that drugs or alcohol played a factor and are still trying to figure out why and how long the man was on the roof.

“We’re complexed about who this gentleman is,” says Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn. “He doesn’t have any relation to UK, doesn’t work there, doesn’t do maintenance there…trying to figure things out like that.”

Further details will be released as they become available.

Arson Investigation Woman In Jail After String of Fires at Apartment Complex

A Lexington woman is in jail tonight accused of setting a string of fires at her apartment complex.

Investigators say Danitra Ross set six separate fires, and that charred brick is still visible from the road. Firefighters were here just Saturday for another fire, which they say the 38-year-old set on purpose.

“There actually were a total of six incidents,” says Battalion Chief Mark Blankenship, “five when there were fires started, one when there was an attempt to start a fire.”

http://liarcatchers.com/arson_investigation.html

Investigators say the woman’s method was to set her shutters on fire. A judge has kept her bond at $30,000 cash, noting that she’s considered a danger to others. She’s charged with five counts of arson and one attempted arson. Those who live at Eastridge can’t understand how Ross or anyone can continue to set fires over a month’s time before being arrested.

Private Detective: Two Ashland Men Sentenced in Money Laundering Conspiracy

A federal judge sentenced two men from Ashland, Ky., today for conspiring to commit money laundering, by stripping stolen motorcycles of their original identifying marks, rebuilding and retitling them for innocent buyers.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove sentenced Richard Meade, 67, to two years in prison and Mark Justice, 55, to 18 months in prison, for conspiracy to commit money laundering by illegally transferring the ownership of motorcycles, aiding and abetting money laundering, and aiding and abetting possession of a vehicle and vehicle parts with altered vehicle identification numbers (VIN). At a later date, the Court will determine a restitution amount to compensate the original owners and insurance companies.

Both defendants were convicted in 2013. Evidence established that motorcycles had been stolen at motorcycle rallies in South Carolina, South Dakota and Florida, by a group of thieves who brought them back to Kentucky to strip them and rebuild them. They removed parts of the stolen motorcycles and replaced them with aftermarket parts bearing different VIN numbers, to conceal that they had been stolen. The stolen motorcycles were registered in Kentucky, with new VIN numbers. In 2006 and 2007, Meade and Justice took some of the newly registered motorcycles, sold them and helped provide fraudulent documents for the retitling process.

Six other defendants previously pleaded guilty and have been sentenced for their roles in the case.

The FBI and Kentucky State Police identified nearly 200 victims in this case, which include the original motorcycle owners and insurance companies.

Kerry B. Harvey, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Howard S. Marshall, Special Agent in Charge, FBI, and Rodney Brewer, Kentucky State Police Commissioner jointly announced the sentence.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

The investigation was conducted by the FBI, Kentucky State Police, the Boyd County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio Bureau of Investigations, Ohio Attorney General’s Office, and Ohio State Patrol. Assistant United States Attorneys Kenneth R. Taylor and Erin Roth prosecuted this case on behalf of the federal government.

Private Detective: Two Shot in Pulaski County

Two Pulaski County men are recovering after being shot Saturday night. But police say their investigation has hit a wall since many of the people who may be witnesses are not talking about what happened.

“Hopefully it don’t happen again, and hopefully a whole lot of people didn’t get hurt or anything.” said resident Jason Randell.

Police say 69-year-old Johnie Wardrup of Tateville, and 26-year-old James Mankin of Somerset, were both flown to UK Hospital with gunshot wounds.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

While police don’t know who shot these men, they do know it was a group of motorcyclists who came to America’s Best Value Inn Saturday night and opened fire.

“It’s kind of scary when you have kids and stuff, and you know everything is getting worse lately than better,” said Randell.

Craig Collett, a motorcyclist who’s from Somerset, says he’s familiar with the motorcycle groups in the area and doesn’t think they’re the ones behind the shooting.

“We get a bad rep because of the side they show on TV but that ain’t me anyway,” said Collett.

Some who are very familiar with this area say these kinds of things don’t typically happen at this motel, especially since it’s so close to a very busy stretch of road in Somerset.

“It’s just something you don’t hear about here in Somerset, i’ve lived here all my life and i’ve never heard anything about it,” said Randell.

“I’m surprised yeah, these are my neighbors down here they are good people,” said Collett.

Somerset police did arrest one man on scene. Christopher McCracken was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and tampering with physical evidence. He was released from jail Sunday morning.
