   * Wanda Gerree Lyons, 51, 201 Jamesway, Frankfurt, Ky., reported Thursday to EPD Capt. Rusty Verran that she and her husband had divorced several months ago and that she had allowed him to reside at her residence at 601 W. C St., for a mutually agreed upon amount of time. However, her ex-husband, Kenneth Wayne Lyons, 64, was supposed to have moved by Thursday. She told him she would prosecute him if he was not out. Ms. Lyons said she returned Thursday from Kentucky to meet with a real estate agent about selling the house when she found that her ex-husband had changed the locks on the doors.


   * EPD Ptl. Jason McCall was dispatched Thursday to the home of Regina Gail Taylor, 45, 209 Old Siam Road, who had reported her vehicle stolen. When the officer arrived, Taylor told him she had found the vehicle, which apparently had slipped out of gear and rolled through a neighbor's yard.
   The 1997 Mazda 626 had been parked in Taylor's driveway and when she went out to start it around 6:10 a.m. to leave for work, it was gone. After calling 911, she located the vehicle in the yard of Carol Street, 204 Old Siam Road. The vehicle apparently slipped out of gear, left her driveway, crossed Old Siam Road and went down a hill into Street's yard, striking a metal swing set before coming to rest against a tree. Two of the swing set's legs were damaged, however, the vehicle sustained damage to the entire length of the passenger side as well as heavy damage to the rear end and trunk.
