Finch was lodged in the Christian County Jail and the person who gave the tip will receive a cash reward.
Todd County Relay for Life organizers hope a change of venue for this year’s event will equal an increase in interest.
Relay Chairperson Tammy Sears spoke to Elkton City Council recently and said the number of teams interested in participating has dropped off at a frightening pace over the last three years, with only three having signed up so far this year.
Ms. Sears asked council to allow the historic square to be closed down from 6 until midnight on June 8th so the relay could be held where Harvestfest, Bike Night and so many other events to do attract good crowds are held.
Council agreed to close the square, but final approval must come from the Highway Department and that is not always easy to get.
