The Trigg County Sheriff’s Department, in cooperation with several other law enforcement agencies assisted in the arrest of two suspects, identified by Sgt. Jaime Green of the Eddyville Police Department as Wesley V. Parker, 30 of Alabama and Tanna N. Jarrell, 28, also of Alabama.

Green said that Parker was charged with Reckless Driving, No Insurance, Fleeing and Evading First Degree (by vehicle and foot), Wanton Endangerment First Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance 1st Degree-Methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance Second Degree-Drug Unspecified, Possession of a Controlled Substance Third Degree-Drug Unspecified, Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia First Degree, and Possession of Controlled Substance not in Original Container. Eddyville Police charged Jarrell with Possession of a Controlled Substance First Degree-Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia First Degree, and Fleeing & Evading on foot in the Second Degree.

According to Green, the Eddyville police officers pursued a 1993 Honda Accord registered in Alabama at 12:30 a.m. on January 23, for what they descried as reckless driving and suspicious activity. The chase began on US 62, and ended with the car exiting I-24 at KY 138. The vehicle traveled south before leaving the road and wrecking in a wooded area. Green said that the occupants of the vehicle eluded pursuit on foot.

Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark said that his office, with officers from the Eddyville Police Department, Cadiz Police Department and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement continued the search for Parker and Jarrell through the next day.
