PADUCAH -- Three men wanted by Illinois authorities were arrested within an hour of each other on Friday afternoon at an apartment complex on McGuire Avenue.

Paducah Police received information that Kyrek Purdiman and Retavus Murray, charged in Pulaski County, Illinois with home invasion, were at a home in the 800 block of McGuire Avenue.

Officers went to the home and arrested both men as fugitives from justice. Purdiman also faces local charges of giving a false name to police and possession of marijuana. Officers found Murray is also charged in Daviess County, Kentucky, with failure to appear in court.

While at the home, officers learned of alleged drug use at another apartment. They found Corey Pringle in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was charged with possession of both, and was also found to be a fugitive from Illinois, where he faces a weapons offense.

All three men were booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
