PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Three men face charges after being found inside a vacant apartment.

Richard G. Talavera, 48, was charged with second-degree burglary and on a warrant charging him with contempt of court

Michael Cash, 29, of Benton, was charged with of first-degree possession of a controlled substance and on a bench warrant charging him with contempt of court

Joe E. Hiett, 44, was charged with giving an officer a false name or address and on a bench warrant charging him with contempt of court

Paducah police were called to a reported burglary in progress about 2:30 p.m. Friday at 2150 Bridge St.

Officers said the resident of the upper apartment of the two-apartment home had been arrested on unrelated charges, and the residence was supposed to be empty.

The tenant of the bottom apartment had been evicted and “No Trespassing” signs were posted.

Witnesses told police they saw four men at the home, and that one of the men, later identified as Talavera, climbed through a window and opened the door for the other three men.

Det. Jason Montgomery arrived at the home and saw the four men, one of whom was at the top of a stairway leading to the front door of the upper apartment. When Montgomery identified himself as a police officer, Hiett tried to flee and was caught. He told the officer his name was “John Johnson,” but his real identity was known to police.

As Hiett tried to flee, Talavera, who had been standing at the top of the stairs, ran into the home. Officers contacted the jail inmate and the owner of the property, both of whom confirmed that no one is supposed to be in the home.

Officers tried to convince Talavera to come out, but he refused. After 40 minutes, officers decided to enter the home.

Officer Nathan Antonites and his K9, Junior, found Talavera had broken into the lower apartment and attempted to hide under items under the stairwell. He was taken into custody, and charged with burglary.

One of the other two men, Michael Cash, was taken into custody after officers found an outstanding warrant charging him with contempt of court.

While searching Cash, officers found a pill identified as Adderall, a Schedule II controlled substance for which Cash does not have a prescription.

The other man was not charged and was released.

Talavera, Hiett and Cash were booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
