PADUCAH, Ky. (KBSI) – A Paducah man faces several charges after police were called to a parking lot of a bar for a reported robbery.

Joshua Jamar Kindle, 32, of the 800 block of South 21st Street faces charges of first-degree robbery, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and kidnapping (adult/attempt).

Police were called about 4:20 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16 for a reported robbery in a parking lot in the 100 block of South 3rd Street.

The victim told officers he was talking with a man, when the man pulled a handgun and demanded money.

The victim said he gave the robber $15, but he demanded more money and told the victim to get into the passenger seat of his car.

The victim ran when the robber was distracted, trying to clear a jam in his handgun.

Kindle was identified as a suspect. He is a convicted felon, having pleaded guilty in 2016 to forgery of a prescription for a legend drug.

A warrant was obtained charging Kindle with first-degree robbery, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and kidnapping (adult/attempt).

Police acquired a search warrant for Kindle’s home, which officers served Tuesday afternoon. During the search, they located the handgun the suspect used in the robbery and the clothing Kindle wore, along with a .22-caliber rifle,
approximately 20 grams of methamphetamine and a small amount of marijuana, according to the Paducah Police Department.

Kindle was arrested on the warrant and booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.

Police say charges regarding the drugs and Kindle’s possession of the rifle are pending.
