About 7:15 a.m. Saturday, Deputy Sam Adams was dispatched to a theft complaint at Buzzard Rock Marina. The marina owner reported a 26-foot, teal colored pontoon boat was stolen from the dock earlier that morning. Later, Adams found the boat at Kuttawa Harbor Marina where he arrested William M. McQuigg Jr., 39, of Kuttawa. The boat, valued at $18,000, was recovered, and McQuigg was charged with theft by unlawful taking $10,000 but under $1 million in value.
He was taken to the Crittenden County Detention Center. At the time, McQuigg was on parole for previous felony convictions.
Also on Saturday about 4:40 p.m., Deputy Keith Suits stopped a 2016 Dodge Charger, on Ky. 810 South. The driver, Jacob H. Armstrong, 37, of Kuttawa had allegedly failed to appear in court numerous times on other traffic charges. He allegedly had a suspended operator’s license and could not produce valid proof of insurance.
Suits charged Armstrong with having no insurance-second offense and operating on a suspended/revoked license. He was jailed in Crittenden County Detention Center.
In a third Saturday incident shortly after midnight, Suits arrested Brooke V. Strickland, 22, following a reckless driving complaint and traffic stop on U.S. 62 West. She was charged with driving under the influence-first offense, and taken to Crittenden County Detention Center.

On Thursday about 11:30 a.m., Sheriff Brent White and Deputy Sam Adams contacted two subjects in a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer in the Suwanee community off U.S. 62 West.

The driver was identified as Justin S. Bell, 43, of Dawson Springs, and his passenger was identified as Lawrence S. Lozano Jr., 47, of Gilbertsville.
