Private Detective: Police Searching For 3 Men Connected to 4 Robberies

Lexington police have released new pictures from recent robberies, including three men wanted for a string of holdups and a shooting. These are all crimes we first told you about on Tuesday morning, but now we know that all four are connected.

Police say they don’t have much to go on in description of the robbers, other than that they are three black men in their late teens or early twenties. They were wearing wearing hooded shirts, and bandanas or masks over their faces.

At 7:30 on Tuesday morning, Robert Grossman had breakfast, then walked outside on Malabu Drive.

“I got on my bicycle and was coming out here to go to work, and there was a news crew out here,” said Grossman.

Less than three hours earlier, while Grossman was sleeping, police say a man was approached by three men wearing masks. The man was shot in the leg, and his phone and wallet were stolen.

“For someone to actually do an armed robbery right here on this spot is definitely brazen,” said Grossman.

But according to new information, the trio was just getting started.

Police say once they left Malabu drive, the men drove four miles to the Speedway on Euclid.

Just before 5:00 am, the clerk told Lexington PD that two men entered the store, displayed firearms, grabbed cash and jumped back in the car.

The three men traveled a little under two miles to their next stop, which was a Speedway on Winchester Road.

There, police said the masked men did the same thing. They showed off firearms, demanded money, took cash, and left.

Police tell us about twenty minutes later,  they made one more stop at a Waffle House on Athens-Boonesboro road, again displaying firearms and taking cash.

Now, police hope with your help, they can catch these criminals and put them behind bars.

Here are ways that you can contact police if you have any information:
- Call police at (859) 258-3600.
- Anonymous tips, including photos and videos, can be submitted by texting LEXPD plus the tip to CRIMES (274637).
- You can call Bluegrass Crime Stoppers anonymously at (859) 253-2020 or www.bluegrasscrimestoppers.com.

Fraud Investigation McCracken County, KY Physician Guilty of Fraudulent Possession of a Controlled Substance

A McCracken County, Kentucky, physician plead guilty today, in United States District Court, before Senior District Judge Thomas B. Russell, to fraudulent possession of a controlled substance, wire fraud and making false statements related to health care matters, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.

Sean P. McDonald, 46, admitted to devising a scheme to obtain prescription pain medication, while a treating physician at two Paducah, Kentucky, hospitals by falsely misrepresenting that he was removing medications for hospitalized patients, falsely possessing the controlled substances, and then falsely causing a request for payment to be sent from the two Paducah hospitals to the insurance carriers of the patients.

http://liarcatchers.com/fraud_investigation.html

Specifically, according to the twelve-count federal Information, McDonald defrauded Lourdes Hospital and Western Baptist Hospital, by means of wire communication. From February 2009, through November 2010, McDonald caused a request for payment to be sent from Western Baptist Hospital and/or Lourdes Hospital, both located in Paducah, Kentucky, to patient’s insurance carriers.

During the same time period, McDonald admitted to making false and fraudulent statements to insurance carriers indicating that he had provided medication to patients when he had not.

Further, McDonald, as a prescribing physician with a DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) registration number to issue prescriptions, wrote prescriptions for Dilauded, a Schedule II controlled substance, in violation of his DEA registration, to patients, when in fact he never provided the controlled substances to the patient.

If convicted at trial, McDonald would have faced a combined maximum term of imprisonment of 113 years, a combined maximum fine of $3,000,000 and a three year term of supervised release. Sentencing before Senior Judge Russell is September 26, 2016, in Paducah.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Lettricea Jefferson-Webb and Seth Hancock and is being investigated by the United States Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, the Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit of the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General, and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Pedophile Tracking Kansas City Man Charged With Offering 2 Year Old for Sex

A 22-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man was charged with multiple felonies Thursday for allegedly offering to provide a 2-year-old child for sex.

Wyandotte County prosecutors charged Zachary Taylor Garrett with attempted rape of a child, attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated child endangerment.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

His bond is set at $500,000 and he is being held in the Wyandotte County jail.

The investigation that led to Thursday’s charges began several weeks ago in southern Missouri, according to prosecutors.

It began with a posting on Craigslist that led to Garrett communicating with undercover police officers and allegedly offering the child for sexual activity, prosecutors said.
