Kentucky State Police in Morehead are searching for Tamara K. Smallwood.

She is wanted on a Morgan County indictment in connection with a burglary of a tornado damaged home in Morgan County.

State police say Smallwood and Marsha Risner picked through the debris of Scott & Eva Kemplin's West Liberty home that was destroyed by the March 2nd tornado and tried selling the items to a scrap yard.

Risner was later arrested and charged with burglary in connection with the case. Police say Smallwood has been on the run ever since.

Her last known address is on Highway 772 in Ezel, KY.

Police believe she may be staying in Montgomery or Clark County.

If you have any information, you can call KSP at 606-784-4127.
