Car shopper accused of stealing safe, tampering

Staff report

A McCracken County man has been charged with burglary and theft of a safe from a home.

A Roger Road resident reported Wednesday that the safe, which contained jewelry, bonds and various other documents, was missing, according to a news release from the McCracken County Sheriff's Office.

The resident said that Jason Chapman, 34, of Paducah came to her house Monday to look at a vehicle she had for sale. Chapman told the resident to go inside while he looked at the car. Chapman is alleged to have entered the residence through a back window to remove the safe while he supposedly was outside looking at the vehicle, according to the news release.

Chapman was questioned about the safe's disappearance. He denied any involvement, then gave detectives a bogus address for his home.

A search of Chapman's true address in the 7900 block of Ogden Landing Road revealed the safe and partially burned documents that were originally inside the safe. He then told the detectives where the bonds and jewelry were hidden, police said.

Chapman was jailed on charges of second-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking of over $10,000, tampering with physical evidence and failure to notify the state Department of Transportation of an address change.
