A man is facing multiple charges after allegedly being in possession of a stolen incubator and selling it to a store.

Tracey D. Taylor, 40, of Mary Alice, was arrested by Loyall City Police Officer Mitch Alford on Monday.

According to a complaint, Taylor was in possession of a stolen incubator on July 23. He sold the incubator to Matt’s Feed and Grain, knowing the incubator was not his to sell.

A second warrant obtained by Kentucky State Police Trooper Kenny Abner states Taylor entered the property of Sequoia Energy knowing he was not supposed to be on the mining property. The mining property is posted with no trespassing signs. Taylor entered unlawfully through the gate. He was caught by security guards.

Taylor was charged with receiving stolen property under $10,000 and second-degree criminal trespassing. He was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $1,000 bond secured by 10 percent and a $5,000 full cash bond.

Taylor was additionally served with a bench warrant on charges of flagrant non-support and persistent felony offender.

In other police activity:

• Floyd Taylor, 39, of Harlan, was arrested on an indictment warrant on Tuesday by Harlan County Sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Brewer. According to the indictment, Taylor engaged in conduct creating a grave risk of death to another and thereby caused serious physical injury to Joshua Holden. Taylor was indicted for first-degree assault and lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $20,000 full cash bond;

• Samantha Napier, 38, of Evarts, was charged with a parole violation on Tuesday by Probation and Parole Officer Brandon Goins. She was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center without bond.
