An Elizabethtown teen who has been wanted by police since June was arrested Thursday morning on outstanding bench warrants in five Hardin District Court cases as well as warrants out of Madison and Rockcastle counties.
Dominique Barnett, 19, had evaded police since June 18, according to court records.
With the exception of an arrest warrant for robbery in Madison County, all of the warrants were in connection to misdemeanor offenses, according to the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office.
Barnett was wanted for failing to appear in two pending misdemeanor cases opened in 2012 in which he faces charges of receiving stolen property and giving an officer a false name, according to court records.
Warrants in those cases were issued June 18 and July 9, according to records.
Records show warrants also were issued in June in a 2011 misdemeanor case involving marijuana possession and trafficking charges when Barnett failed to appear for a probation revocation hearing.
In addition to failing to appear for court dates in misdemeanor cases, the sheriff’s office also served Barnett warrants for nonpayment of fines in two traffic cases from 2010 and 2011, according to court records.
According to jail records, Barnett’s fines and court costs total more than $1,500.
The 2011 traffic case involved a charge of driving under the influence, according to court records. Barnett also was served a warrant in that case for noncompliance with alcohol and drug education classes.
Barnett is lodged at the Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of several cash bonds that total $5,250.
He was arraigned Thursday via video feed in district court and is scheduled to appear for hearings Jan. 14.
