Lewis County, Kentucky Sheriff Johnny Bivens says he will extradite a man arrested by Portsmouth authorities. On Wednesday Portsmouth Police arrested Aaron G. Whitby, 34, of 1517 Fourth St., Portsmouth as a fugitive from justice on a felony indictment from Lewis County.

“He was wanted for theft by unlawful taking over $500, which is a class-D felony,” Bivens said. “And criminal mischief, first degree, which is also a felony.”

Will Lewis County extradite Whitby?

“Yes, absolutely,” Bivens said. “As soon as we hear he goes to court and he waives extradition, we will be up there to get him.”
