Man faces additional charge
HARRODSBURG — Kenneth Ray Cook, who was arrested in July after a manhunt that lasted several hours, was charged last week with possession of material portraying a sexual performance of a minor, according to Mercer County Chief Deputy Scott Elder.
When deputies went in July to serve a warrant on Cook, according to Elder, he fled the scene, prompting police to obtain help from law enforcement officials statewide.
This recent, additional charge resulted following the investigation of his home after the initial arrest.
Cook is placed in the Boyle County Detention Center.
