Paducah woman arrested in connection with stolen safe

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

A Paducah, Kentucky woman has been arrested in connection with a burglary investigation.

Tiffany S. Williams, 34, was charged with second degree burglary.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, on July 2 deputies responded to the 4000 block of Oaks Road for a report of a burglary.

Deputies say the victim reported that someone had entered his home and removed a small, fireproof safe that contained medication, several hundred dollars in currency, jewelry and other important documents.

A witness saw someone, identified as Williams, leaving the home during the same time frame.

According to deputies, a short time later it was reported that a vehicle ran off of the road in the 1700 block of Oaks Road. They say additional witnesses confirmed that the driver of the vehicle was Williams.

Deputies say Williams was also seen removing an object, suspected to be the safe that was stolen, out of the vehicle before leaving the scene.

They say the vehicle was traced back to someone who had allowed Williams to use their vehicle on the same day.

On July 6, deputies requested that patrol units be on the lookout for Williams after confirming and following up on the leads in this case.

At about 3:30 p.m., a deputy found Williams during a traffic stop in the area of 9th and Washington Street.

Williams was taken to the sheriff's department where deputies say she first denied being involved. As the interview progressed, deputies say Williams not only admitted to taking the safe, but showed detectives where she had hidden the safe in a wooded area near Husbands Road.

She was taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail without incident.

    Federal judges have ordered the EPA to ban a dangerous, popular insecticide, but farmers in Southeast Missouri who use the chemical are coming to its defense.
