Between the dates of May 13 and May 18 of this year, Moody’s Transportation was charged 9 times for fuel, amounting to over $500, by Burnett’s Fuel Center, with the receipts being initialed “DB,” the initials for David Bruhm, 38, of 234 B South Avenue, Jamestown., who was an attendant at Burnett’s Fuel Center at the time.

Money was also reportedly taken from the till.

Also in May, there were fraudulent charges made to Charles Smith, and Koch Farms, which were also signed “DB.”

On July 10, Mr. Bruhm, was picked up on an arrest warrant, at which time, Mr. Bruhm reportedly had a needle in his right back pocket, which resulted in the drug charges.

He was transported to the Fentress County Jail  and booked on 11 counts of Forgery and 11 counts of Theft Under $500, plus the Possession of Drug Paraphernalia charge.  He remains in jail at press time under a $25,00 bail.

In a separate and unrelated case, on July 5, a Sheriff’s Department officer on patril stopped a silver colored Buick automobile for violation of the Light Law, and when asking the driver for a license, the driver ave him a name and date of birth, which proved to be false, and later told the officer that she had given him her sister’s name, and that her name s Kimberly D. Derossett, 28, of 812 East Rock Quarry Road, Clarkrange, and that she did not have a driver’s license.

Upon running her information through NCIC, it was learned that she was wanted on an outstanding warrant in another county, and that her license was suspended.

The officer asked for and received permission to search the vehicle and the woman’s purse, where he found a spoon that was burned on the bottom and contained a blue residue.

She was subsequently taken into custody and during booking, a needle and a lighter were found in her clothing.
