A Hopkinsville pharmacy was burglarized late last night, while a local man was arrested for allegedly trying to break into another drug store hours later in an apparently unrelated incident.
The first burglary happened at Cayce’s Pharmacy on the Bypass, where someone forced their way inside the building and took various pills. That incident happened around 9:45 last night and no suspects are listed on the report. The report from Hopkinsville Police says the front door lock was damaged on the building.
A few hours later, Hopkinsville Police were called to Tom’s Pharmacy on Country Club Lane around 2am and found 27-year old Matthew Carbino of Hopkinsville allegedly standing at the east wall of the building where a hole had been knocked in the wall. Carbino allegedly ran to his vehicle when he saw an HPD cruiser.
The report says a flashlight, a steel punch and a long-handled claw hammer were found in the suspect’s vehicle and he allegedly admitted to making the hole. Police say Carbino was trying to make a hole in the wall large enough to get inside.
Carbino was arrested and charged with attempted burglary and possession of burglary tools.
The amount of rain brought on by the remnants of Hurricane Isaac has varied greatly across Western Kentucky.
Only four hundredths of an inch of rain was recorded yesterday at the “mesonet” site north of Hopkinsville. Fourty-five hundredths of an inch fell at the Trigg County site yesterday and much of Todd County also got significant rainfall yesterday, though the new weather site there isn’t online yet.
Christian and surrounding counties may not make it to the predicted one and a half inches of rainfall that was prognosticated from Isaac, as the system has taken a track which could keep the southern Pennyrile a little more on the dry side. That doesn’t mean no rain, however, as precipitation is still likely today and possible tomorrow.
A Tornado Watch came and went with little fanfare in the Pennyrile last night after funnel clouds and a couple of tornadoes were spotted in Masaac County, Illinois and in Paducah. Only some tree damage was reported there.
A two-vehicle wreck at Dawson Springs Road and the Bypass last night injured four people.
The incident happened around 10:30, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police. Witnesses on the scene told officers that 16-year old Victoria Ramos of Hopkinsville ran a red light on the 1682 Bypass as she was southbound through the intersection, hitting a vehicle driven by 25-year old Donovan Dame of Hopkinsville in the side.
Dame said he had a yellow light on Dawson Road, while Ms. Ramos disputed the witness claims and said her light was green. Three of Dame’s passengers, 20-year old Olivia Calhoun of Cadiz, 20-year old Meredith Scruggs of Hopkinsville and 25-year old Stewart Haberlock of Hopkinsville were taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center. All three were not wearing seat belts.
A passenger in the Ramos car, 18-year old Cody Boyd of Hopkinsville, was also taken to Jennie Stuart. Boyd was buckled in at the time of the wreck, according to the police report.
