The following day, MCSO reported obtaining search warrants for residences, vehicles and cell phones. Evidence obtained resulted in the arrest of two suspects identified as 33-year-old Taylon Whitney of Hopkinsville and 24-year-old Tyler Noffsinger of Central City.

Whitney and Noffsinger were each charged with first-degree robbery, adult kidnapping, second-degree assault and first-degree wanton endangerment. They were listed as being held in Muhlenberg County Jail today, pending bond.

Deputy Jeremy Rose is investigating. Piper, Greenville and Central City police departments along with Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force assisted.
