Home's electrical system destroyed

BY KATHLEEN FOXkfox@paducahsun.com

Officers from the McCracken County Sheriff's Department responded to a duplex in Lone Oak Tuesday afternoon for a breaking and entering call, according to Sheriff Jon Hayden.

He said police received notification at 1:56 p.m. from a resident of one side of the duplex located at 102 Winslow Drive near the intersection of Winslow Drive and Daytona Street. The resident said when she noticed her power had gone out, she looked out her window and saw two males walking around the corner into the backyard.

The men then broke the glass and entered the back door of the adjoining duplex, she said. Police were on scene in about five minutes.

Because of the rapid response time, officers initially believed the two men were still inside the duplex and set up a perimeter, Hayden said.

He said officers then entered and cleared the duplex, which was unoccupied at the time. The men were able to escape out the back door before officers arrived. He said the interior of the duplex was ransacked and sustained extensive damage.

The electrical meters on the side of the building had been ripped out and were destroyed. Following the crime, officers began searching the area for two men in a white Crown Victoria vehicle with temporary tags.

Hayden said the vehicle in question was located about 4:30 p.m. at a residence, 242 Seminole Drive in Paducah. Multiple suspects were located inside the home and officers recovered nearly all of the stolen items, which included two televisions, computer games, toys and wrapped Christmas gifts.

No one was arrested or faced charges as of Tuesday night but multiple arrests are expected. Police also believe several of the alleged suspects could be tied to other pending burglary cases in the county, according to Hayden.
