Belcher Man Arrested For Allegedly Trying To Con Police
A Belcher man is behind bars in Pike County after allegedly trying to illegally obtain pain medication, by filing a report with the Kentucky State Police stating that his medication had been stolen. 30 year old Jason Douglas Rowe was apprehended yesterday afternoon after he visited KSP Post nine to report that his pain medication had been stolen. Detective Kevin Newsome alleges in the arrest citation that he was able to get Rowe to admit that he lied about the robbery and state that it was an attempt to obtain more medication. Rowe was also served with outstanding warrants stemming from a 2004 case where Rowe had pleaded guilty to Wanton Endangerment for firing a rifle out of the passenger window of a moving vehicle. The bench warrants allege that Rowe had not paid his fines and was found to be in contempt of court. Rowe is being held in the Pike County Detention Center on a $2,000 full cash bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for July 2.
