Laurel County Man With Booby Trap Arrested

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a complaint of an allegedly intoxicated male subject at a residence off Cole Road on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. The subject, identified as 56-year-old Raymond Jackson, was allegedly waving a large knife at neighbors, cursing them, and creating a disturbance. Upon arrival, deputies located a booby trap device on the front porch, which was a sheet of plywood with several knives sticking out of it mounted on a hinge to swing downward. Deputies determined Jackson was under the influence, who alleged the booby-trap was there when he bought the residence. He was arrested and lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
