Video Surveillance Leads to Arrest of Paducah Man
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Paducah man for an incident that occurred June 28 in the area of Cimmaron Way.  

Deputies spoke with the victims who had home video surveillance of a male with distinctive hair and tattoos. He reportedly attempted to open the doors of the victim’s vehicles, and produced a handgun out of his pocket and pointed it at the house that was occupied at the time.

A short time later, deputies responded to a residence near that scene. The resident at that home reported that a small handgun, identical to the one in the video, had been taken from an unlocked vehicle.

With public assistance, detectives were able to identify 25-year-old Kaleb H. Walker, as a suspect, and they continued in an exhaustive effort to locate him.

Saturday morning, July 11th, at approximately 7:00 am, deputies responded to the area of Nace Lane to a complaint of a disturbance involving a firearm. While investigating, they located Walker, and evidence which linked him to the events in the Cimmaron Way area. 

Walker was arrested and taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail, on charges of theft by unlawful taking-firearm, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and five counts of first degree wanton endangerment.
