A Calloway County man wanted in connection on burglary and rape charges was arrested Tuesday in Hickman County.  West Kentucky reported Wednesday investigators from Hickman, Graves and Carlisle counties arrested 40-year-old Justin Riley in connection with an incident last month.

Riley was spotted by Graves County sheriff’s deputies hiding out in eastern Hickman County near the Graves County line.  Riley reportedly jumped out of a two story home where he was hiding and tried to take a Carlisle County deputy sheriff’s car along with trying to heist a Graves County sheriff’s car.  In addition to the rape and burglary charges, Riley was also charged with assault, attempted theft, criminal mischief, and fleeing or evading.

Two Murray residents were arrested Monday on drug related charges.  The Calloway County Sheriff’s Department says 40-year-old Jennifer L. Robinson and 26-year-old Jessalyn S.
