Hopkinsville Police conducted a day-long intensive warrants detail yesterday, and made 17 arrests.
A news release says there were 29 warrants served and four summonses. Police say there is a distinctive correlation between people wanted on warrants for other crimes and them committing new crimes before being located.
Officer John Bracey and five other officers focused on serving as many warrants as possible in one day and the charges ranged from theft to failure to pay child support all the way up to wanton endangerment.
26-year old Sherekia Cherry of Hopkinsville was charged with 1st degree wanton endangerment for allegedly pointing a handgun at a woman at South Campbell and East 7th April 28th and threatening to kill her in front of the victim’s daughter.
She was arrested and lodged in the Christian County Jail on a 5 thousand dollar bond.
