Participants Richard Cooper, Donnie Wheeler, Tim Brown, Brad Crick, Ethan Barton, Shown Auxier, Matthew Gullett and Michael Payton took two runs through the pit trying for a time that would take them to the top of the leader's board.

Alleged forged checks traced to Austin woman PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall   
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00
    Charges have been filed against an Austin woman in connection with incidents of checks allegedly forged on a fictitious account at a local banking institution.
    Tammy Sue Arevalos also known as Tammy Sue Combs, 38, is the purported perpetrator of the checks, which were presented at two county grocery stores. The suspect was apparently successful in “passing” one of the checks, from what Austin Patrolman Shawn Hurt learned on June 24. Another check that Arevalos/Combs had tried to cash at a Scottsburg store had been retained by the store but not cashed.
    The Scottsburg incident had been investigated by Lt. Richey L. Barton of that city's police department. He was dispatched on June 24 to the grocery store and was told by personnel there that the woman had left the store while the check was being processed by store personnel. Arevalos/Combs had also reportedly left an ID card there.
    According to what the officers learned, Arevalos/Combs had apparently gotten some blank checks, known as “starter” checks which are normally given to people who have just established accounts. She had purportedly typed her name and address on the checks and numbered them. Lt. Barton learned from the bank that the woman did not have an account there.

    An Austin man now faces 12 criminal charges filed in Scott Circuit Court, all connected to alleged drug dealing at his residence.
    James D. Haney, 50, was charged Monday, July 6, with seven Class B and C felony counts of dealing in a Schedule I, II or II controlled substance as well as two counts of dealing in a Schedule IV controlled substance, one misdemeanor count of dealing marijuana and Class D felony counts of maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
    Haney was taken into custody on Thursday evening, July 2, by Major/Detective Lonnie Noble and Reserve Detective Robert Hardin after they and other Austin officers served a search warrant at the Haney household on Factory Drive.
    Listed as seized evidence was a number of Endocet, Lorcet, Lortab, Xanax, Methadone and Oxycodone tablets. Also discovered in the residence were two syringes and several pill cutters as well as $1,469 in currency. A total of $19 of that amount was identified by Det. Noble as marked enforcement aid monies used in previous “controlled” buys from Haney, the officer noted.
    The charges against Haney were prepared and an initial court hearing for him was prepared by Prosecutor Jason Mount for Tuesday, July 7. There will be charges filed against several other individuals as well, most for visiting a common nuisance, according to information received.
    Bail for Haney was set at $75,000 corporate surety or full cash.
