Early week mayhem results in fatality, break-ins

It was a busy two days for the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.

At around 10:20 a.m., a two-car wreck resulted in a fatality on Veterans Parkway. Sheriff Barry Babb said Demarcus Woods, 27, was driving south on the parkway near Lee’s Mill, when his vehicle slowly drifted across the center line and struck another vehicle.

Woods was killed in the collision, while the other driver did not suffer serious injuries.

Early Tuesday morning at approximately 1:30 a.m., numerous vehicles were entered on Gladys Lane off Antioch Road in the southern portion of the county. Babb said video shows a light-skinned black male entering unlocked cars and stealing various items. The suspect was also armed, Babb said.

“Please remember to keep your cars locked and never approach a suspect,” Babb said.
