Third Person Arrested in Counterfeit Money Case
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A third person has been arrested in connection to an investigation into counterfeit money seized in Paducah last month. 

Paducah Police arrested 24-year-old Kaleb Walker of Smyrna, Tennessee, and cited a 17-year-old juvenile on September 28 after they allegedly tried to pass a fake $20 bill at a business on Hinkleville Road. Police say several counterfeit bills of varying denominations were found in their vehicle during a traffic stop. The vehicle was seized. 

Officers say eighteen-year-old Katelynd Tucker was a passenger in the vehicle but wasn't charged at that time. A detective later executed a search warrant on the vehicle and reportedly found more counterfeit bills in her backpack. A second backpack belonging to Tucker in the vehicle allegedly contained a broken pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine and several syringes. 

After an interview at the police station on Wednesday, Tucker was arrested for 1st-degree possession of a controlled substance, 1st-degree possession of a forged instrument, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tucker was booked into McCracken County Jail.
