Kentucky State Police arrested three people on metal theft charges in Muhlenberg County over the weekend.
The investigation began June 5th after KSP received a complaint from Greenville Recyclers on Kentucky 181 that two radiators had been stolen the previous day. Trooper Crag Engler was able to determine the items had been re-sold to Cain’s Recycling in Belton and was able to obtain warrants on three suspects.
Arrested Sunday and charged with 3rd degree burglary were 31-year old Amy Gary and 35-year old Barry Gary of Drakesboro and charged with receiving stolen property was 31-year old Dewayne Foster of Drakesboro.
All three were lodged in the Muhlenberg County Jail and the stolen property was returned to its owner.
A wreck in Calloway County yesterday afternoon injured an elderly Murray couple.
The report from Kentucky State Police says the incident happened around 3pm on KY 121, when 47-year old John Roberts of Murray attempted to pass a vehicle driven by 83-year old Martha Rogers of Murray.
Police says there was an oncoming vehicle and that caused Roberts to mis-judge his clearance to get back in the right lane. Ms. Rogers ran her vehicle off the road in an attempt to avoid Rogers and hit a telephone pole.
Ms. Rogers and her husband, 84-year old Carrol Rogers, were taken by ambulance to Murray-Calloway County Hospital—while Roberts went uninjured. Everyone involved was wearing a seat belt.
A Hopkinsville woman was arrested on domestic assault charges yesterday after she allegedly cut her husband with a kitchen knife.
The alleged incident happened around 5:30pm at the Morris Estates on Sivley Road, where 31-year old Amy Whittle and 33-year old Colin Whittle were reportedly in a dispute when Ms. Whittle brandished an 8 inch kitchen knife.
Colin Whittle told officers she threatened to kill him and started swinging the knife at him. As he tried to avoid being struck, he was cut on his left upper arm. Police say he refused medical treatment for the superficial laceration.
Amy Whittle was arrested around 9pm last night at the police station and charged with 2nd degree assault and lodged in the Christian County Jail.
A single-vehicle wreck in Todd County Saturday night claimed the life of a Clarksville woman.
Kentucky State Police say 36-year old Julie Roberts of Clarksville was southbound on U.S. 79 near Guthrie just before 11pm. Witnesses told investigators Ms. Roberts swerved to avoid striking a deceased deer and dog that were in her path of travel.
Ms. Roberts, who was not wearing her seat belt, lost control of her vehicle and it overturned. She was ejected and pronounced dead on the scene. A passenger, 34-year old Amy Jurisin of Woodlawn, Tennessee, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville for non-life-threatening injuries.
Hopkinsville Police are investigating a major burglary on Locust Grove Road from last week.
The incident happened sometime between Tuesday morning and Friday night, according to Jason and Chavonne Carol of 131 Locust Grove, who told Officer Daniel Gray that they were out of town during that period and had all of their possessions boxed up in preparation for a move to Fort Hood, Texas.
While they were gone, someone entered their house and took just over 18-thousand dollars worth of their property—including guns, electronics, expensive jewelry and piggy banks.
The perpetrator also ransacked the home and let an animal out of its cage. A suspect is listed on the report and the investigation continues.
