Paducah Couple Arrested Following Investigation

 

HICKS RYMES ARRESTPADUCAH, KY (12/7/11) – The McCracken County Sheriff's Department arrested a Paducah couple on various drug offenses on Tuesday morning following a drug investigation.

The investigation began approximately two weeks ago when McCracken County Sheriff's Detectives received complaints of illegal drug trafficking occurring at 2435 South 25th Street in Paducah. Detectives were able to determine that illegal drugs were being sold at 2435 South 25th Street Apartment #4. As part of the investigation, a McCracken County Sheriff's Detective, acting in an undercover capacity, identified the adult residents (Edward Rhymes and Christina Hicks) of the apartment. The detective subsequently made undercover marijuana and crack cocaine purchases from the apartment.
 
On Tuesday, Dec. 6 at approximately 10:40 AM, Detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department located and conducted a traffic stop on a Dodge Durango driven by Christina Hicks and occupied by Edward Rhymes. Detectives arrested the couple.
 
During a search of Edward Rhymes, Detectives seized two plastic bags of marijuana and US currency believed to be proceeds of illegal drug sales. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed an additional quantity of marijuana. A short time later, Detectives executed a search warrant at 2435 South 25th Street Apartment #4. During a search of the apartment, Detectives seized a quantity of marijuana.

Edward Rhymes Jr. and Christina Hicks were arrested and lodged in the McCracken County Jail on numerous drug offenses. The couple was also charged with Wanton Endangerment, which stems from the sale of crack cocaine and marijuana in the presence of Hicks' juvenile children. Rhymes was on felony parole out of the state of Illinois at the time of his arrest for drug and weapons offenses.
 
The investigation is continuing. Individuals with information pertaining to illegal drugs can contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Department Drug Division at 270-444-5157.
