MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Three people have been arrested in McCracken County after a string of car burglaries in the Farley area.
According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, the vehicles were unlocked, and various items were stolen, such as GPS, radar guns, purses, money, checks, credit cards, and personal ID's like driver's licenses and some social security cards.
Officers received a lead in the case when a local bank told them one of the checks reported stolen had been cashed. The sheriff's department says stolen checks continued to be cashed and the bank notified the police. After one was cashed, the officers were able to locate and arrest two women. Two days later, a man was arrested in connection with the first stolen check cashed.
Arrested were Sara E. Smith, 20, of Ledbetter, Ky., Kelley M. Johnson, 20, of Paducah, Ky., and James A. Lambert, 22, of Paducah, Ky. All three were charged with first degree possession of a forged instrument, and Johnson was also charged with tampering with physical evidence.
