Scott Co. Grand Jury Indicts Three In KSP Stolen Property Case

Following a special investigation by Kentucky State Police, a Scotty County grand jury returned indictments on three individuals involved in forgery and theft of KSP property. Master Trooper Mitch Harris was indicted on two counts of second-degree forgery and two counts of theft by unlawful taking over $10,000. Scott County Coroner John Goble was indicted on one count of receiving stolen property over $10,000, receiving a stolen firearm, abuse of public trust, trafficking in controlled substance, and two counts of official misconduct. Michael Crawford, a retired KSP lieutenant colonel, was indicted for receiving stolen property over $10,000 and receiving a stolen firearm. KSP launched an internal investigation in December 2017, after they uncovered that state police ammunition was being misappropriated. Officials determined that more than $40,000 in ammunition had been unlawfully removed from the KSP Supply Branch in Frankfort and delivered to Goble’s residence. Harris was immediately placed on unpaid administrative leave when the investigation began.
