Paducah resident faces drug charges

Staff report

A traffic stop in McCracken County led to the arrest of a Paducah resident who now faces drug-related charges, according to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

Police said officers ran the tags on a vehicle about 4 p.m. Saturday on Martin Luther King Drive and learned the registration had been canceled by the Department of Transportation for failure to maintain liability insurance. The driver, Kimberly Hardin, 46, of Paducah was operating the vehicle on a suspended operator's license and couldn't produce valid proof of insurance.

Following a search of the vehicle, crack cocaine and a smoking device consistent with the use of crack cocaine were found. Hardin faces charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia to buy or possess, operating on a suspended or revoked license, failure to notify the Department of Transportation of an address change, failure to produce an insurance card, and a lack or expired registration plates and a registration receipt, according to a news release from the sheriff's department.
