State Police says a Calvert City man was arrested after a pursuit involving a dump truck.

Around 1 p.m. Friday, KSP responded to the area of the 16-mile marker of I-24 to assist the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department in a pursuit.

They say that before the pursuit, multiple calls came into the McCracken County Dispatch Center about a dump truck going the wrong way on the interstate.

KSP says multiple collisions were reported involving the dump truck at various locations in McCracken County.

Upon the arrival of troopers near the McCracken/Marshall County line on I-24, KSP says troopers took the lead in the pursuit which continued into Calvert City. It ended near the intersection of Highway 1532 and Highway 62 where the dump truck became disabled.

Fraud Investigation Louisville Woman Scammed While Buying Puppy Online

A Louisville woman is speaking out after she says she was scammed online while trying to buy a dog.

Madeline Drago said she started searching for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for her mother back in February.

“I was looking for a little Yorkie Puppy,” said Drago.

Her mother was widowed back in October, so Drago was searching for a companion for her.

“They’ve been married 75 years, and she was very lonely and was wanting a little teacup Yorkie,” she said.

Drago says she eventually found one website and contacted the owner. She exchanged dozens of emails with them and had her heart set on a little dog named Abbie.

She sent a money gram of $578. She called him after she sent the money and he asked Drago for 900 more dollars for shipping.

Drago said that is when it hit her that this was a scam.

The Better Business Bureau says that scams like this can really happen to anyone.

“Especially with these websites, they look so real these days, it’s easy to Google something and really be interested in it, and think it’s your lucky day,” said Drago.

The BBB says that anytime there’s a wire transfer or a money gram involved, the consumer should ask questions.

Drago’s mother has been happily paired with another puppy, but Madeline Drago said she has learned a bitter lesson.

“Be cautious and try to check out closer, if you can, before you send any money,” said Drago.

She has filed a police report.

Pedophile Tracking Man Arrested on Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child

A 52-year-old man was arrested Thursday, accused of three felony sex crimes against a child that spanned the last five years, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

James Williston Gibson, of Waco, was arrested after a child made a report Feb. 21 about sexual abuse by Gibson at a North Waco home. Swanton said the child is a known acquaintance of Gibson, but the child’s gender and age are being withheld to avoid identifying the victim.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

“(Officers) determined that between 2012 and 2017 that this victim had (been sexually abused) on numerous occasions by the suspect,” Swanton said.

After investigation, officers received a warrant for Gibson’s arrest earlier this month. He was arrested Thursday morning and taken to McLennan County Jail.

He was arrested on a first-degree felony charge of sexual assault of a child, a first-degree felony charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child and a second-degree felony of indecency with a child.

Gibson was released from custody by Thursday afternoon on $160,000 bond.

Insurance Fraud Albany, NY Broker Sentenced

The man who admitted to defrauding clients out of $1 million has been sentenced to three to nine years in state prison.

Prosecutors say Rosenbaum solicited the money in private investments in his Saratoga Cheese Corporation. He promised investors substantial returns and stock shares but was accused of using the money to pad his bank account and line his pockets.

http://liarcatchers.com/insurance_fraud.html

“Exploiting hardworking New Yorkers for personal financial gain is reprehensible,” said Attorney General Schneiderman. “My office will continue fighting to root out securities fraud and fully prosecute those responsible for it.”

Some of that stolen money used to travel to and from Costa Rica where he paid for an apartment for a mistress.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says the scheme ran between 2006 and 2012.
