Laurel County Sheriff John Root says deputies arrested a London man accused of stealing an ATV and running from police. Police say 22 year old Dustin C. Morgan of Sally’s Branch Road was charged with receiving stolen property and fleeing or evading police on foot, resisting arrest and destruction of a VIN number. Deputies say an investigation led them to his house, and when they arrived Morgan ran. When officers returned the next day they found him at the house and he ran again. Following a short foot chase officers caught him and took him into custody. While there deputies found a stolen ATV that had the VIN number removed. In addition to the other charges, Morgan had a warrant out for his arrest for failure to appear in court on second offense DUI, driving on a suspended or revoked operator’s license and other traffic violations. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
