watt arrestCALHOUN, Ky. (6/12/19) — It took a little time, but McLean County Sheriff’s Office got its man.

MCSO’s investigation into the July 23, 2017 robbery of the Dollar Store in Calhoun led to an indictment returned from a McLean County Grand Jury Monday on 31-year-old Lacedrick Watt of Bowling Green.

Sheriff Ken Frizzell said after Owensboro Police charged Watt on recent robberies in Owensboro, McLean County investigators found a similar pattern in the mode the robberies were committed. That led to an investigation into Watt and resulted in enough evidence for an indictment, said Frizzell.

MCSO charged Watt today with first-degree robbery. To read the July 2017 story, click HERE.
