Missouri fugitive held in Graves

Staff report

A fugitive from Missouri faces multiple charges after she was arrested Friday, according to the Graves County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff's Deputy Richard Edwards conducted a traffic stop Friday, pulling over Paducah resident Adam Duckwyler, 24. He was operating a motorcycle on U.S. 45 North with passenger Kara Banks, 30, of Saint Clair, Mo. Edwards stopped Duckwyler for driving 80 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to the sheriff's office.

As Edwards approached Duckwyler, he observed a handgun under Duckwyler's left arm. Edwards quickly secured the weapon and determined Duckwyler didn't have a carry concealed deadly weapon permit.

Further investigation led to Banks' arrest after the Kentucky State Police reported two active warrants for her out of Missouri. According to the sheriff's office, Banks had two syringes on her person used to inject methamphetamine that were taken as evidence when she was arrested.

Banks was jailed in Mayfield and charged with two counts of being a fugitive from another state; failure to comply with helmet law over the age of 21; first degree, first offense possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Duckwyler was cited for speeding 25 mph over the posted speed limit and for carrying a concealed weapon.
