For second straight night, Norder nabs felon with felony warrants. This time, Big Clifty man.

The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Big Clifty felon with a Hart County felony warrant.

Tuesday evening just before midnight, Sgt. Fred Norder was patrolling in Big Clifty when he observed a black passenger car with an equipment infraction. Norder conducted a traffic stop in the 100 block of Spurrier Road.

Upon making contact with the occupants, Norder and Deputy Mark Johnson learned a passenger, 43-year-old William D. Gordon, had a felony arrest warrant out of Hart County. Gordon was wanted on a second-degree burglary charge, a class C felony.

He was arrested without incident.

Norder transported Gordon to the Grayson/Hart County line where he turned the prisoner over to Kentucky State Police for transport to the Hart County Jail. He’s being held on a $5,000 cash bond.

On Monday night, Norder arrested a Hancock County felon with felony warrants during a traffic stop on East Chestnut Street, in Leitchfield. James T. Holzworth, 30, was wanted on multiple felony warrants, including first-degree wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
