PRESTONSBURG — One of Kentucky State Police’s most wanted is behind bars, after being arrested Wednesday afternoon in Prestonsburg.
Officials with the Prestonsburg Police Department and the Floyd County Detention Center have confirmed that Earl Ray Slone, 56, of Falmouth, has been arrested. Slone has been listed on the KSP Post 6 Most Wanted list.
“Our investigator received information earlier this week on Earl slone through the course of another investigation,” said Allison Martin, Communications Director for the Attorney General’s office. “When he tried to apprehend Slone earlier this week, he took off on foot, and the investigator was unable to apprehend him.”

In April 2012, Slone was indicted on one count of tampering with physical evidence, and was indicted again in July on a charge of complicity to fraudulent use of a credit card.
