Around 7:45 p.m. Sunday, Ronald Baylor, 57, of Palmyra, Indiana called police saying he was stranded in his car on Interstate 65 south before Fern Valley Road in Louisville, Kentucky.
When officers arrived, Baylor told them a pickup truck with several people stopped and pretended to help him. He said he left them alone with his car while he went to get two new tires so he could continue on his way.
Baylor told police the people ransacked his car while he was gone and stole his Oxycodone. He then asked police for a report so he could refill his stolen medication.
As an officer on the scene investigated this, he discovered Baylor filed a police report for an identical incident earlier that same day.
When he was confronted about this, Baylor told police he did get his Oxycodone stolen earlier that day in the same manner while his car had a flat tire. He refilled the prescription, according to an arrest report, then, “in a stroke of bad luck,” the exact same thing happened again on I-65 south in the same location.
Officers didn’t buy his story. They arrested Baylor and charged him with falsely reporting an incident and making a false statement to procure the administration of a controlled substance.
