arrest  millerHOPKINS COUNTY, KY (9/28/12) – On Thursday, September 27, Deputy Scott Troutman with the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a felony theft at HGI Mine Services, owned by Henry Carter.
 
Stolen items from the theft included multiple spools of copper wiring, a pallet of commercial batteries, a pallet of commercial radiators, several large commercial sprockets, a 16’ x 7’ trailer, and a Kawasaki four-wheeler. Total value of all the stolen property was reported to $23,500.
 
In the evening hours of Thursday, September 27, an employee of HGI observed the stolen trailer, loaded with several of the stolen items, being pulled by a red Chevrolet truck south on the Edward Breathitt Parkway and called 911. Deputy Mark Gentry and Deputy Jonathan Barnes intercepted the vehicle pulling the trailer and initiated a traffic stop near the 41 mile marker. Ricky Miller, 24, of Central City, KY was found to be the driver of the truck and 33-year-old Ryan Emery was the passenger.
 
Deputy Troutman was called out to the scene, as he was the case officer. Henry Carter was called out to the scene and positively identified the trailer and its contents to be his stolen property. Miller and Emery were then both placed under arrest for Receiving Stolen Property over $10,000. Emery was also charged with possession of methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia, as well as two outstanding warrants.
 
Deputy Gentry and Deputy Troutman then back-tracked the recent locations visited by Miller and Emery and were able to recover the remainder of the stolen property, including the stolen Kawasaki four-wheeler. As a result, all stolen property valued at $23,500, was recovered and returned HGI Mining Services Inc.
