PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Officers say three men wanted by Illinois authorities were arrested within an hour of each other at an apartment complex on McGuire Avenue in Paducah.

Paducah police say they received information that Kyrek S. Purdiman and Retavus R. Murray, charged in Pulaski County with home invasion, were at a home in the 800 block of McGuire Avenue on Friday afternoon.

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 also is charged in a Daviess County, Ky. warrant with failure to appear.

While at the home, officers learned of alleged drug use at another apartment.

There, they found Corey L. Pringle in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was charged with possession of both, and also was found to be a fugitive from Illinois, where he faces a weapons offense.

All three men were booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
