By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Quick action by Paducah police officers resulted in the arrests of three people in connection to the robbery of a man who was out for a walk this morning.
Officers say 66-year-old Jerry Don Garrett, who uses a walker, told them he was walking along the 1600 block of Broadway around 6 am when a car stopped near him. A young woman exited the vehicle and spoke with him for a few minutes. She got back into the car and it circled the block.
The car reportedly stopped near Garrett again, and two women exited the vehicle, allegedly knocking Garrett to the ground, taking his wallet and keys.
The women and the car's driver then fled.
Garrett provided officers with a description of the two women and the car. Minutes later, officers located it in the 1600 block of Jefferson Street. The two women and a man were still inside the vehicle, where police say they found Garrett's keys and wallet. His money was missing.
Police brought in K9 Bikkel, who indicated the presence of drugs in the car. Officers reportedly discovered marijuana residue and a crack pipe.
Taken into custody were 31-year-old Christopher M. Dacre of Bronson Avenue. He's charged with complicity to second-degree robbery. Also arrested, 33-year-old Robin Hiett, who has no permanent address. She is charged with second-degree robbery, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Officers say 28-year-old Lacy Wagner is charged with second-degree robbery. She was taken to Western Baptist Hospital for treatment, after repeatedly banging her head against the partition that separates the front and back seats of the police cruiser.
