Missing Clothing Leads Police to Suspect
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A man is facing charges after allegedly attempting to break into the home of an elderly Paducah woman early Tuesday morning.

The 93-year-old woman contacted the Paducah Police Department early Tuesday morning, saying that a man was yelling and trying to break into her home. Officers responded to a home on North 16th Street where they found several broken windows, including the window of the front door, and a knife which appeared to have been used to pry open the door.

Police also found several items at the scene, including a boot and hat, which did not belong to the victim. Officers began searching the area, and found several other items at BB&T Bank on Broadway, including a second boot and a pair of pants containing a wallet belonging to 52-year-old James Guess of Paducah.

Officers eventually located Guess, who wasn't wearing pants or shoes, in the foyer of Paducah Power System. He was also carrying a jacket with broken glass in the pockets.

Guess was cited for first-degree burglary and two counts of third-degree criminal mischief. Police say he was highly impaired so he was transported to Baptist Health Paducah for treatment.
