The day after their photos appeared in The Ironton Tribune, two women highlighted as some of Lawrence County’s Most Wanted probation offenders were captured.

Yvette Littlejohn, 29, and Natasha Strunk, 26, were both arrested Tuesday.

Carl Bowen II, chief of the Adult Probation Agency, said an anonymous tip led to Littlejohn’s capture in Flatwoods, Ky.

“We received an anonymous tip. Our agency went over and made contact with the Flatwoods Police Department,” Bowen said. “They ran her (information) and somebody there said, ‘I think that’s the girl who works at Giovanni’s.’ So they picked her up that evening.”

Littlejohn is on probation for a conviction of two counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs. She failed to report to the probation department, prompting a warrant to be issued.

She is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to answer to her probation violation.

Strunk, who is on probation for an aggravated possession of drugs conviction, was arrested in Toledo on Tuesday.

Bowen said the other offenders who appeared on last week’s list, Chadwick Workman, 22, and Paul D. Price Jr., 38, have not been captured, but his department has received several tips.

“We have been to a couple of addresses on the others,” Bowen said. “We are getting real close.”

Bowen also said won’t be satisfied until the men are captured.

“Right now we’re at 50 percent and that is still failing for me,” Bowen said. “I want higher than that. I want at least 75 percent. But we’ll get them.”

This week’s list of Lawrence County’s Most Wanted are:

• Meahgan Russell, 28, was last known to be living in Proctorville or Huntington, W.Va. She is on probation for a conviction of three counts of fourth-degree aggravated trafficking in drugs.
