Knox County deputies Claude Hudson and Keith Liford received information Tuesday that there were two fugitives living in the Poindexter Trailer Park in Barbourville. One of the fugitives was supposed to be wanted out of Florida and the other from Kentucky. The deputies located Christopher Bruner, 27, of Barbourville, who was wanted on a Kentucky Parole Violation warrant. The other male was from Florida; however, no record of any arrest warrants could be verified by the deputies from that state or any other.
During the investigation, the deputies also located Julia A Kirkland, 25, of Hinkle. Kirkland was wanted on three Knox County bench warrants for theft by deception stemming from bad checks issued to three separate victims. Kirkland was also charged with hindering prosecution and apprehension by attempting to hide Bruner inside the residence.
Both Bruner and Kirkland were lodged in the Knox County Detention Center.
