At least two people impersonating police officers stole cash from an elderly woman in Hopkinsville yesterday.
Very little information is provided on the Hopkinsville Police report, but a 75-year old woman on Cates Street told officers that suspects identifying themselves as police officers came to her home between 9 and 9:45 am. The perpetrators got away with $200 cash, according to the report, which does not list any suspects.
A motorcycle wreck in Trigg County Friday morning injured the driver and passenger.
The incident happened around 10:30 am on KY 80 near Barefield Road, according to a news release from Kentucky State Police, which says 49-year old Willie Bridges of Cadiz was westbound when his rear tire failed. Bridges lost control of his bike, causing it to overturn.
Bridges and his passenger, 41-year old Leanne Tyler of Hopkinsville, were both taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of their injuries. Police say both were wearing a helmet.
KSP was assisted at the scene by the Trigg County Sheriff's Office, Trigg County EMS and Trigg County Fire and Rescue.
Fake money was passed at a Christian County business sometime Friday or early Saturday morning.
Hopkinsville Police were called to the Bank of Cadiz on Fort Campbell Boulevard Saturday morning after Joey Allen—who owns Rips in Gracey—brought in his deposit from the previous day. It was then that the bank and Allen found counterfeit 100 dollar bills that someone had used to pay at the business.
Two suspects are listed on the report and the investigation continues.
The Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force combined forces with Hopkinsville Police and the Christian County Sheriff's Office to arrest a man on methamphetamine charges Thursday.
A news release from the task force says they received a tip of possible meth activity at an 8725 Greenville Road residence. When two detectives visited the residence, they found 23-year old Christopher W. Aldridge of that address standing on the front porch.
Police saw two Coleman fuel cans, plastic tubing and a can of starter fluid near the home and another can of starter fluid on a four-wheeler. Aldridge gave consent to search the residence and the investigation led to his arrest on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possessoin of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The release says additional charges of child endangerment are forthcoming as one small child was found living in the home and a second child had been staying there.
Three people were arrested at the Woodland Heights Apartments early Thursday morning for allegedly making methamphetamine, with one suspect also accused of pulling a gun on police.
Christian County Sheriff's Deputy Brandon Hawkins received a tip that someone was making meth at one of the apartments and the report says police could see three people putting a lab together through a window when they arrived around 2:30 am.
Police got permission to make entry into the residence due to the possibility of an explosion in an apartment complex. The report says a suspect answered when they knocked, but immediately tried to close the door. Police say 28-year old Curtis Flick, Jr. of Hokpinsville pulled a handgun on officers and then fled to the back room.
Arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, trafficking in marijuana and wanton endangerment were Flick, 32-year old Kunawv Miller of Hokpinsville and 30-year old Jeremy Sarcinella of Princeton.
The arrest citations say a one-year old baby was asleep in another room while the suspects were allegedly making meth.
