The second incident ended with the arrest of two men for stealing metal from hog pens at Buffalo Pork for sale as scrap. That incident took place on Tuesday, August 28.
Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark said that his department apprehended two 18-year-old female suspects, Edna Combs of St. Charles, and Deidra Wallace of Dawson Springs. He added that a third male suspect has been identified as 33-year-old Bill M. Woodruff of St. Charles. A fourth suspect remains unidentified.
“Two things happened at the same time,” said Clark to describe the capture. “The manager observed an anhydrous leak and investigated. He saw an individual jump over the fence and flee. At the same time, Cadiz Police Officer Jeff Ethridge smelled anhydrous ammonia as he investigated a vehicle he noticed in a nearby field. At the same time, he got a call from the dispatcher about the suspect the manager saw. He found the two females in the car and detained them.”
Clark said that theft of anhydrous ammonia is a Class B felony in the state of Kentucky. He said that the suspects face the possibility of additional charges from the burglary. Possible charges include possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a police scanner in a motor vehicle.
