    About half of the states have made the decision to expand Medicaid. Missouri lawmakers are currently debating the matter in Jefferson City. How will what legislators decide impact the state, and those currently living without health insurance?

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

A Tennessee man is facing charges related to two western Kentucky veterinary clinic burglaries.

In March 2013, the Bloomington Illinois Police Department responded to a reported burglary in progress at a veterinary clinic and caught a man who was fleeing the scene.

Gregory R. Webb, 34, of Spring City, Tenn., was charged with the veterinary clinic burglary.

An investigation showed Webb’s vehicle had a large amount of pet medications, which was later determined to be from another veterinary clinic burglary in Illinois.

After Webb was caught, Bloomington Police Department contacted the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department enquiring whether there were any recent veterinary clinic burglaries.

· A burglary was reported in Nov. 2012 at the Cummings Veterinary Clinic on Clarks River Road. Officers say around $25,000 in pet medications and several thousand dollars was taken.

· On December 31, 2012, another burglary was reported at the Heartland Veterinary Hospital on Clarks River Road. Officers say around $100,000 in pet medications was taken.

Bloomington Police say Webb had business cards from local veterinary clinics in McCracken County.

McCracken County detectives requested case information from the Bloomington Police Department, which included information seized from Webb’s computer and cell phone.

Authorities say Webb was in Paducah at the time of the burglaries and had plans to burglarize the two Paducah-area veterinary clinics and may have sold pet medications originating from the clinics.

Webb was due in court on Thursday on Bloomington’s charges, was served two McCracken County warrants for burglary and theft.
