Scott County Coroner, Co-Defendants Waive Arraignment

Posted: Updated:

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Scott County Coroner John Goble and his co-defendants waived their right to a formal arraignment in court Monday afternoon.

Goble is accused of working with a Kentucky State Police master trooper and former lieutenant colonel to steal thousands of dollars worth of ammunition and several guns from the organization.

Goble, Master Trooper Mitch Harris and Retired Lt. Col. Mike Crawford were all in court this afternoon. The three were indicted about a month ago.

The coroner is accused of receiving 10 guns, three rifles and $40,000 worth of ammunition that allegedly was taken from police by Harris.
The indictment says Harris took the weapons and forged signatures to cover up their absence. It also alleges that Crawford received stolen ammunition and weapons as well. 

Goble is facing a slew of charges including receiving stolen property, abuse of public trust and official misconduct. Some of those stem from separate claims that he paid someone who didn’t actually work as a deputy coroner.

Harris is facing theft by unlawful taking and forgery charges. Crawford is charged with receiving stolen property. 

Because Goble is an elected official he doesn’t have to resign and can continue working as the coroner. Harris is currently on administrative leave from KSP. 

A status hearing has been scheduled for October 1 at 1 p.m.
