Thomas devised a mechanism to conceal the identity of the vehicle by covering the Great Seal of the Commonwealth which is required for all state-owned vehicles.

The Police Department contacted the Department of Parks – Park Ranger Division who supplied information confirming Thomas as an employee of the Department of Parks Construction Division. Additional investigation confirmed Thomas frequently operated a vehicle registered to the state Division of Fleet Management and was observed delivering items to the recycling company. Officer Gilpin conferred with the Taylor County Attorney’s Office and filed a criminal complaint for Theft and Official Misconduct 1st degree in which arrest warrants were issued.

While on patrol in south Campbellsville today, Officer Scotty Perian observed a vehicle which matched the description of the one operated by Thomas and initiated a traffic stop after observing the Kentucky Official Government registration plate on the truck. The driver was later identified as Bobby Thomas; age 57; 730 Elmore Road; Campbellsville, KY. Officer Perian arrested Thomas on the outstanding warrants for Theft and Official Misconduct 2nd Degree from Officer Gilpin’s investigation. An additional charge of Official Misconduct 2nd Degree was placed as a result of today’s arrest since Thomas was operating a state – owned vehicle in violation of state law.
