HUSTONVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) – A man has been arrested after police say he publicly posted a confidential informant’s personal information.
Jeffrey Miller is charged with intimidation for posting the person’s information.
Hustonville Police Chief Fred McCoy says people first called him complaining that Miller had been making threats online against the alleged informant.
McCoy says shortly after that, he received a call saying flyers with the informant’s personal information had been spread throughout the Stanford Walmart.
Mccoy says the complaints are something he takes very seriously. He says though informants are paid well to help police, they still work hard to protect their identity.
This isn’t Millers first intimidation charge. According to court documents, Miller was arrested on Oct. 28 for retaliation after being arrested for trying to sell crystal meth to an informant. Miller was then sentenced to three years on a supervised release.
McCoy says in his 38 years as a police officer, he’s never had to deal with a situation like this one. He says an informant’s name is usually redacted from court documents.
Miller has bonded out of jail. A court date has been set for Nov. 21.
