Bedford Officer Makes Lucky Catch While Shopping

Last updated on Thursday, July 3, 2008

(BEDFORD) - A Bedford police officer just so happened to be in the right place at the right time yesterday when he picked up a Bedford woman for several warrants.

Bedford Police Chief Dennis Parsley tells WBIW News an off-duty officer was at the Family Dollar in Oolitic yesterday when he happened upon 32-year-old Ginger Corey of Bedford, whom he recognized as being wanted on several warrants.

After confirming the warrants, he took her into custody and also found several controlled substances on her person including pot and hydrocodone.

She was wanted on a Lawrence County warrant for failure to appear, an Orange County warrant for theft, and a Bedford warrant for shoplifting...from the Bedford Family Dollar.
