Tabitha Harmon, Corbin, accused meth dealer

CORBIN, Ky. (WTVQ) – An accused methamphetamine dealer, who investigators say gave them a fake name, was arrested after a brief foot chase in Whitley County.

Whitley County Sheriff’s deputies says they answered a trespassing complaint at a home on Maple Creek Road Saturday and made contact with a woman in the home who they say told them her name was Ashley Harmon.

When a deputy told her he thought that was a false name, they say she took off running.

A deputy chased her through a briar thicket and eventually caught up with her and made the arrest.

With the help of Whitley County E911 dispatchers and the Whitley County Detention Center, investigators say it was determined the woman’s real name is Tabitha Harmon, of Corbin.

Investigators say the 25-year old had three outstanding arrest warrants, including one for reportedly trafficking in methamphetamine. They say she was also charged with giving an officer a false name, fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest.

She was lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
