Leader of Addiction Recovery Group Arrested

The director of Never Alone, Never Again, a Maysville-based recovery resource for drug addicts was arrested Saturday on a charge of theft by unlawful taking over $1,000. Curtis Oliver, 53, allegedly took grant funding awarded to NANA by the Buffalo Trace Agency for Substance Abuse Policy Board. Maysville Police Detective Ken Fuller confirmed Oliver's arrest Saturday afternoon. Fuller said the investigation was prompted by board members of NANA who contacted him with reports of theft. An examination of bank statements for NANA showed Oliver had withdrawn money from the bank account via ATM card, Fuller said. "It appeared that he was using it for gambling habits," Fuller said.
