By Cecil Lawson News Editor cecil@kynewsgroup.com A routine Kentucky State Police traffic checkpoint in Rowan County last Friday night uncovered stolen items from the Salt Lick Elementary School. KSP Troopers Scott Caudill and Michael Wathan were conducting a traffic safety checkpoint at the junction ot l.S. 60 and Bluestone Road Friday evening. Just after p. m. they stopped a 1999 Mercury Sable driven by Matthew Jenkins, 23, Wallingford. According to the KSP press release, Troopers Caudi- 11 and Wathan noticed several heater cores and several hundred pounds of copper and aluminum inside the car. When questioned, Jenkins and a passenger, Donald Holbrook, 29, Morehead; revealed that they had tak- en the metal materials from the Salt Lick Elementary School building. Jenkins and Holbrook were taken into custody, and they were both charged with Receiving Stolen Property. The two men were lodged in the Rowan County Deten- tion Center. According to Rowan County Jailer Don Hall, both men were released the following day on a $1500 surety bond each. The case remains under investigation by Trooper Can- dill, and the Kentucky State Police Post 8 in Morehead currently has no comment on the investigation. This is the second incident this year involving crimes committed involving the Salt Lick Elementary School. In early February four individuals from Menifee and Montgomery County were caught in the act of burglary and arrested by the Bath County Sheriff's Office. The Salt Lick Elementary School building was recent- ly reported to be in the process of purchased by the City of Salt Lick, announced during the February Bath Coun- ty School Board meeting.
