cadiz police arrest6 300CADIZ, Ky. (11/4/13) – Joseph M. Gardner, 39, of Cadiz, was arrested on Nov. 1 by Officer Randy Clark and charged with Alcohol Intoxication. Police received a complaint of an intoxicated subject outside the Super 8 Motel on Hospitality Lane around 5:40 p.m. Subject did not have a room rented nor have a room key. Subject was intoxicated.

The Cadiz Police Department has investigated three incidents of shoplifting in the past two weeks and has charged three people in connection to the unrelated incidents.

Linda A. Pennington, 65, of Cadiz, was charged with Theft under $500 by Major Duncan Wiggins. The manager of Fred's Discount Store contacted police to report they had surveillance video of a woman taking items from the shelf and leaving store without paying for them. The manager provided police with a vehicle description. Major Wiggins conducted an investigation and located the vehicle at the women's Anna Street residence. She was questioned and admitted to taking $59 worth of merchandise. Pennington cooperated with police and police recovered the stolen items. Pennington was served a summons for theft and has since pled guilty in Trigg County District Court.

Antoine S. Martin, 54, of Cadiz, was arrested on Oct. 24 by Chief Chad Grace and charged with Theft under $500. Chief Grace investigated the theft of food items from the Dollar General Store. The subject was observed on store surveillance video concealing food items totaling less than $10 in value and leaving the store. Martin was located a short time later and arrested. Martin has since pled guilty to the theft charge in Trigg County District Court.

Melissa D. Radford, 40, of Cerulean, was arrested Nov. 3 by the Trigg County Sheriff's Office on a warrant charging her with Theft under $500. Radford was observed taking a portable radio/CD player off the shelf at Fred's Discount Store and then taking the item to the front counter and requesting a refund. Radford was given store credit and used the credit to purchase cigarettes. The value of radio was $21. The act was also witnessed by a store employee. Sgt. Scott Brown was the investigating officer.

In addition to these charges, each person is served a trespass notice that bans them from coming back to the stores where the crimes were committed. If they are caught back on store property, they can face additional charges to include trespassing.

Cadiz Police will continue to work with local merchants and provide extra patrol during peak times. In the months leading up to Christmas, the Cadiz Police Department usually sees a rise in reports of theft and shoplifting.
