OPD arrest 05-31OWENSBORO, Ky. (5/31/13) – The Owensboro Police Department has released the following arrest information for the week of May 28 to May 31.

Cierra Janae Board, of the 1100 block of West Seventh Street was arrested on May 28 regarding a previous issue that arose when law enforcement investigated the premises. Officers with Owensboro Police Department said that during their previous search, they allegedly found suspected crack cocaine, marijuana, and a marijuana grinder. Authorities didn’t arrest Board at the time due to the need to first verify through lab analyses whether or not the suspected cocaine was in fact real. Board is currently being held in the Daviess County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.

At 4:35 p.m. on May 28, loss prevention officers at Kroger, 1670 Starlite Drive, called law enforcement regarding a subject allegedly attempting to leave the facility without paying for merchandise. Authorities said a woman was prevented from leaving the store before law enforcement arrived. Upon arrest, officers noted that the woman did not have any means to pay for the items, and that she was very cooperative with loss prevention and law enforcement during the entire process. Police didn’t indicate if any charges would be filed.

In an arrest from a previously open case, Richard C. Hicks, Jr., of the 2100 block of West Fifth Street, was charged with Criminal Possession of a Forged Inst., 2nd Degree. Police reports state that Hicks was in possession of a forged check in the amount of 314.78 on the account of Second Street Grill in Owensboro. Hicks allegedly cashed the check at Kroger on Starlight Drive but authorities said the account from the Second Street Grill was closed in 2008, and the business itself closed over two years ago. Hicks was also served a warrant from Ohio County in a similar forged check case. That warrant charged Hicks with an additional Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument, second degree. Hicks is currently housed in the Daviess County Detention Center.
