Woman arrested for impersonating officer
by TOM DOTY
PRESTONSBURG - A Teaberry woman lodged at the Floyd County Detention Center last week after being arrested for forgery and theft was charged in a new case last weekend that finds her accused of posing as a police officer.
According to the complaint, filed by Det. Robert Caudill, Evelyn Delynn Hall, 30, posed as an officer of Operation UNITE and handcuffed a man before robbing him on July 16. She is also alleged to have convinced a couple, three days later, that she was again with UNITE and proceeded to execute a search of their home.
Operation UNITE reported that Hall stole five guns and prescription medications from one victim and that all five firearms have since been returned to their rightful owner.
UNITE noted that the investigation into Hall was a joint effort with Sheriff John K Blackburn and his deputies. The thefts in the case are still under investigation by the Kentucky State Police.
Operation UNITE is also continuing to investigate Hall and ask that any one who may have been victimized contact them at (866) 424-4382.
Hall was arraigned Monday and granted a preliminary hearing on July 31. She was ordered to be held on a $10,000 cash bond. She was already being held on a $5,000 cash bond for four charges of forgery that were brought against her last week.
In the other case she is accused of stealing a checkbook and then cashing forged checks on four occasions, which included checks cashed at the Velocity Market and IGA of Stanville.
Hall is also facing charges in Pike County after being indicted by the grand jury there in June. She is facing five counts of forgery and five counts of possession of a forged instrument in one case that saw a bench warrant issued on June 22. She was later indicted in Pike County again on June 28 and charged with one count of attempting to obtain a controlled substance through fraudulent means.
