Local jail lockups were a bit light over the weekend — golly gee, do you wonder why?

With last week’s historic ice storm rolling through northeastern Kentucky and wreaking havoc on the area roadways, it appears not a whole lot of people wound up in jail over the weekend.

That’s not to say police haven’t been doing their jobs in less than stellar conditions — as Ashland Police Chief Todd Kelley pointed out last week, law enforcement doesn’t cease because of a little bit of snow.

The following people were booked over the weekend — anyone named in the lockups should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
