The Trigg County Sheriff’s Office acted on a tip this week to arrest three residents on drug charges.
A news release says a complaint was received of drugs being sold out of a Cadiz home and the Sheriff’s Department put together enough evidence to obtain a search warrant.
Recently purchased K9 unit “Kilo” assisted in the search of the home, which resulted in a summons to court for 18-year old Benjamin Lau of Cadiz on possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia charges.
Two days later, 19-year old Derrick Bacon and 18-year old Akeyla Williams of Cadiz were arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
Clarksville Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Fort Campbell Boulevard business from last night.

The woman complied and gave him all of the cash, saying she watched him walk away on foot on Wallace Boulevard. The woman said the suspect sounded like he might have been a younger man.
