Local jails were a bit busier over the weekend, particularly in Boyd County and at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.

A total of 26 people were shown Monday morning in detention centers across the region stemming from arrests occurring between Friday and Sunday. While Boyd and the Big Sandy had a marked increase in arrests over recent weekends, Greenup County only showed one and Carter County none.

An arrest is not an indication of guilt. Anyone listed in the weekend lockups should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

The following people were jailed over the weekend:
