The Christian County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two alleged burglaries that took place between Sunday and Wednesday morning.
The first case, 38-year old Michelle Hayes of Butler Road, Hopkinsville told sheriff’s deputies that while she asleep at her Butler Road residence Wednesday night, someone entered her home and stole $180 from her wallet.
Ms. Hayes reported that she fell asleep in the living room around 3:30 a.m. and woke up a couple hours later and found that the front door of her home was wide open, dresser drawers in her bedroom were pulled out and the kitchen window open and the microwave in front of the window pushed to the side.
Ms. Hayes provided a possible suspect and explained to deputies that the young male recently got out of jail and knew she had money and where she kept it.
In the second case, 23-year old Ryan McLeod of Herndon Oak Grove Road, Oak Grove reported that sometime between Thursday, August 9th and Thursday, August 16th someone entered his residence at stole various military gear with a total estimated value of over $2,700.
McLeod told deputies prior to the incident, he came home and found an unknown male inside his residence, who claimed to be the plumber and even showed him faucets he had changed.
McLeod also stated that all the faucets looked the same and that there was no reason for a plumber to be there.
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office says both burglary cases are being investigated and that detectives were following all leads.
Three people went to the hospital after a two vehicle wreck at Fort Campbell Boulevard and the Bypass yesterday evening.
The incident happened around 6:15, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police, which says 43-year old Kiell Baumgarten of Bowling Green was westbound on the Bypass and was struck in the passenger side of his car by a vehicle driven by 23-year old Jesse Sweat of Oak Grove as he crossed the intersection.
Both drivers told police they believed they had a green light, but there were no witnesses on the scene who could confirm either story. Baumgarten and his two passengers, 11-year old Sophie Baumgarten and 9-year old Sydney Baumgarten, were all taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
Sweat was injured but did not require a trip to the hospital.
A Hopkinsville man was arrested early this morning for allegedly leading police on a high speed chase through residential neighborhoods while driving impaired.
The arrest card for 22-year old Antonio Haskins of the city says he was observed straddling the center line in an SUV on East 9th street around 12:30am. Officers attempted to pull him over, but he allegedly continued on to South Campbell, East 10th and Walnut Streets.
Haskins would eventually stop and abandon his vehicle at East 18th and Jones, but a foot chase soon ended with a struggle and eventual arrest. Police say a handgun was found on the passenger side floor board of Haskins’ vehicle.
He was charged with fleeing and evading, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and DUI. Haskins reportedly blew a .156 on the breath test, which is nearly twice the legal limit.
Charges of possession of marijuana and promoting contraband were tacked on when officials at the jail allegedly found a baggie of the illegal weed in his sock.
Hopkinsville Police are investigating a burglary at a Fort Campbell Boulevard residence where nearly 2-thousand dollars worth of property was stolen.

Shots were also fired during the altercation into a nearby house, where Hopkinsville Police say three children were sitting on the porch, though no one was hit by the bullets.
