A series of vehicle break-ins and a vehicle theft on Maplelawn Street from Friday night led to the arrest of the alleged perpetrator.
As is often the case, the reports say all three of the vehicles broken into on Maplelawn were unlocked. A GPS unit was stolen from one vehicle and a camcorder from another.
The third vehicle—a 1997 Chevy Blazer valued at 15-hundred dollars—was driven away from Maplelawn and later located on Linda Court around 9:45 Friday night.
21-year old Dominick McKnight of Hopkinsville allegedly led officers on a foot chase, before being caught and arrested. He is charged with three counts of theft, receiving stolen property, running from police, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
