arrest durhamMADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/18/13) – A Nebo man was arrested on Nov. 15 on several charges that ended with a chase on foot.

According to a Madisonville Police Department report, while Officer Van Killough was assisting Hopkins County Deputy Shawn Bean on a burglary in progress on Rose Creek Road, he made contact with a Donnie Ray Durham, 36, of Nebo and two others.

During the contact with Durham, Killough observed items used in manufacturing methamphetamine. As Killough was in the process of detaining one of the females on the scene, Durham started to flee on foot southbound.

The report said Killough advised him to stop and to get on the ground. However, Durham disregarded the command and continued to flee. Killough pursued Durham through a cornfield and across Wicks Well Road. Durham then continued down into a creek bed and attempted to hide. As Killough got closer, Durham again attempted to run through the cornfield and back into the creek.

Killough was able to catch up with Durham and apprehended him without further incident.

Durham is currently lodged in the Hopkins County Jail with a $5,000 cash bail bond for charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, drug paraphernalia buy/possess, obscuring the identity of a machine, theft by unlawful taking under $500, and fleeing/evading the police, second degree.
