Corporal Grumbles interviewed the witness who identified one of the three suspects as Joseph Lloyd Carroll, 25 of St. Inigoes. The witness saw Carroll get into the backseat of the vehicle. Two other suspects were identified as Gregory Stuart Cooley, 24 of Lexington Park, the operator of the stolen vehicle, and Casey Michael Kohn, 24 of Lexington Park, the front seat passenger of the stolen vehicle. At no time did Carroll, Cooley or Kohn have permission to take or operate the victim’s vehicle. Search incident to Carroll’s arrest revealed the keys to the vehicle.
Danielle Renee Smith, 23 of Ridge, the girlfriend of Carroll, was at Monk’s Inn and was interviewed about the incident. As Corporal Grumbles was attempting to conduct the investigation, Smith became very loud, confrontational and yelled warnings to Kohn and Cooley of their pending arrests. Smith refused to listen to Corporal Grumbles when told to stop yelling and stop approaching the suspects in the investigation. Smith’s disorderly demeanor and confrontational behavior seriously comprised the officer’s on the scene safety and hindered the investigation. Smith was arrested and charged with hindering a police officer in the performance of duty and failing to obey a lawful order of a police officer.
