Pulaski & Laurel Countians face armed kidnapping charges
Pulaski County couple and two Laurel County men charged
Note: - Any indictment is an accusation only. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

U.S. Department of Justice, Eastern District of Kentucky
LONDON, KY (Wed 4 Oct 2017) - On Monday, a federal indictment was unsealed, charging two Laurel County men and a Pulaski County couple with drug, kidnapping, and firearms offenses.
On September 28, 2017, a federal Grand Jury, sitting in London, charged that Robert "Bobby" Hurley, III, of East Bernstadt, KY; Ronald Brandon "Hubcap" Hubbard, of London, KY; Roger Creech, of Somerset, KY; and Tracy Amanda Hamblin, also known as Tracy Creech, of Somerset, KY, aided and abetted each other in the kidnapping of an unidentified victim, in May of this year.
The indictment alleges that the group kidnapped the victim, for the purpose of assaulting them, and utilized a facility or instrumentality of interstate commerce to commit the crime. The indictment further charges the group with brandishing, using, and carrying a firearm, during commission of the crime.
The indictment has also charged each of the four with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, along with a fifth subject, Brian McDonald, who was not charged as part of the kidnapping. Additionally, Roger Creech, Brian McDonald, and Robert Hurley, III, were each charged with illegally possessing firearms.
Carlton S. Shier, IV, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Stuart Lowrey, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF); Richard Sanders, Commissioner of the Kentucky State Police (KSP); and Greg Speck, Pulaski County Sheriff, jointly announce the indictment. The case was investigated by the ATF, KSP, and Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.
