By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A domestic violence call early Thursday resulted in the arrests of four people, with one still at large.
Around 1:00 am, 911 dispatchers received multiple vague calls from 37-year-old Mandy Lane claiming that her husband, 37-year-old Thomas Lane, had assaulted her. When deputies arrived at their home, 104 Nickel Heights Apartments, they found that some neighbors were attempting to take Mrs. Lane to another location. They were escorted back to the home, where Mr. Lane was handcuffed and detained after he was found hiding in a closet. A suspected quantity of methamphetamine was also found in plain view in the apartment.
While deputies were investigating the domestic violence claim and the drugs, Thomas Lane ran from the home. Deputies pursued him, but lost him in the area of Edwards Drive. Several deputies, Paducah Police, and a canine officer attempted to track him, but were unsuccessful.
The apartment was searched revealed more meth, along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Mandy Lane was arrested, along with 56-year-old William Prater, 49-year-old Crystal Diaz, and 42-year-old Keith Seiger, all of Paducah. They were all jailed for possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. Mandy Lane also had an unrelated bench warrant on a contempt of court charge.
Warrants are being pursued for the arrest of Thomas Lane for assault 4th degree - domestic violence, fleeing and evading 1st degree, theft by unlawful taking under $5000, and possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia. He also has an outstanding arrest warrant from another state.
Anyone with information about Thomas Lane's whereabouts are asked to call the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.
