Hay is going to be harder to get this year due to drought conditions and there has already been one report of a major theft this summer.
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office was called to 5230 Dawson Springs Road, Crofton recently after 30 bales of hay were discovered missing. The owner of the building where the hay was kept recently passed away.
Witnesses to the theft were able to give deputies a description of the vehicle used to steal the hay and three suspects are listed on the report.
A suspect accused of robbing a pizza deliveryman at gunpoint late last month was arrested by Clarksville Police.
A news release from Clarksville Police says 21-year old Brian Miller of Clarksville was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery. The report from the incident says Miller and another male suspect are accused of holding up a Pizza Hut deliveryman at gunpoint July 25th on Needmore Road.
The victim said he was getting back in his car when a suspect used his foot to keep his door open and pressed a handgun against his neck. The suspects got away with 85 dollars.
Christian County District Court Judge Jim Adams was among the first people to testify Tuesday at the inaugural meeting of the Unified Juvenile Code Task Force meeting in Frankfort.
The Task Force board was chaired by State Representative John Tilley of Hopkinsville and was formed in light of such tragedies as the murder of Amy Dye.
During Judge Adams’ remarks he said laws concerning juvenile offenders need to be modernized, citing the Amy Dye case as an example of the need for more oversight and tighter regulations. The Dye case is even more tragic because of the numerous times school administrators reported alleged abuse against Amy to the state Health and Family Services Cabinet before her brother beat her to death early last year.
Her brother, now 18-year old Garrett Dye, had run-ins with the law as a juvenile before the incident and spent time in the court system in Todd County.
Representative Tilley says the Task Force will continue hearing from people like Judge Adams and other experts on children’s issues to hopefully make a recommendation to the General Assembly next years about what kind of changes could be made to better protect and rehabilitate the state’s most vulnerable.
A rear-end collision on Country Club Lane yesterday afternoon sent two Hopkinsville residents to the hospital.
Police say the incident happened around 4:45 when 61-year old Doris Manning of Hopkinsville was stopped and waiting to turn into 125 Country Club. 47-year old Paul Herndon of Hopkinsville was approaching from behind and said he didn’t notice Ms. Manning was stopped.
By the time he applied his brakes, it was too late and he skidded on the wet pavement into the rear of the vehicle. Ms. Manning and her passenger, 39-year old Larayna Perez of Hopkinsville, were taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for head, neck and back pain. Herndon was not injured.
The weather indirectly led to a vehicle versus pedestrian wreck at J.C. Penny Wednesday afternoon that sent a local woman to the hospital.
The report from Hopkinsville Police says it was raining at the Bradford Square Mall around 3:40 when 47-year old Marilyn Trice parked her vehicle and attempted to run inside the store.
Ms. Trice ran into the path of an oncoming vehicle driven by 22-year old Kelsey Venable of Pembroke, who didn’t have time to stop. Police say Ms. Trice was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for leg pain, while Ms. Venable and her passenger went uninjured.
