The man who got away during a drug arrest at Pennyrile Homes Tuesday was found and arrested Friday.
Hopkinsville Police arrived at 3b Pennyrile Homes around 1pm for a “knock and talk” Tuesday, according to the report. Officers noticed 23-year old Nicole Wilson walking toward the back door and were able to stop her, allegedly finding a handgun and a large bag of marijuana in a back pack.
While police were looking in the backpack, the second male suspect fled the scene out the front door and got away.
Ms. Wilson was arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence.
Officers caught up with the male suspect Friday, arresting 23-year old Damien Davis of Hopkinsville at 300 Charlie Court. He is charged with trafficking in a controlled substance within a thousand feet of a school and possession of drug paraphernalia.

It’s the final day for the Western Kentucky State Fair and it should be a big one.
As always, the final night of the fair will feature the truck and tractor pulls in the grandstand, with J.R. Knight giving some of the details on that.
Another popular event is the mixed martial arts fighting in the convention center, which will get underway at 7. Tim Henderson has the rundown on that…
There will be a Heifer and Steer Show at the Livestock Barn at 6:30 and a poultry and rabbit show at 5pm. Gates open at 4pm and rides at 5. There will be a cash drawing at 9pm and names will be drawn until there is a winner.
Before you get behind the wheel after drinking a few alcoholic beverages this weekend, just remember the Clarksville Police Department will be out in full force looking for impaired drivers, in addition to traffic violators.
Clarksville Police will begin its city-wide saturation patrols today and tomorrow from 10 p.m. through 4 a.m.
The saturation patrols are partially funded by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.
Christian County Judge Executive Steve Tribble says he is praying for rain and says he had nothing to do with the fireworks being canceled Wednesday night.
Judge Tribble was the man who issued a ban on outdoor burning that remains in effect for all of Christian County until further notice, but he says he made exceptions in the initial proclamation to allow the show to go on at the fair. When the fireworks were called off Wednesday, the Judge said it was news to him.
The judge says there is no magic formula to determine how much rain it would take for the burn ban to be lifted, but says it would take a lot across the entire county at this point.
Like most everyone else, Judge Tribble says his concerns lie with the farmers of the southern Pennyrile.
The United States Drought Monitor has extended the boundary of the “extreme drought” to include all of Trigg and most of Christian County, with areas to the east on the border still in a “severe” drought. Needless to say, the corn crop can’t read a map to tell the difference.
