6:25 AFTERNOON UPDATE: GPD investigating attempted armed robbery

GLASGOW — At 8:56, a.m., Saturday, Glasgow Police Department officers were dispatched to Highland Pharmacy on Rogers Road, in reference to an armed suspect in the process of robbing the business.

Prior to the arrival of officers, David Wiley, an employee of the pharmacy, was able to disarm and detain the suspect and upon arrival, Officer Justin Kirkpatrick placed the suspect, identified as 33-year-old Ira McDaniel, of Hardyville, under arrest.

Further investigation into the case led to the finding of McDaniel’s vehicle at a business adjacent to Highland Pharmacy, which was found to contain material relevant to the investigation. The vehicle has been impounded by GPD.

McDaniel was transported to T.J. Samson Community Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released. He was then transported to and lodged in Barren County Detention Center.

Wiley received minor injuries during his scuffle to detain McDaniel, however, was not transported by medical services to seek treatment.

McDaniel has been charged with first degree robbery, first degree wanton endangerment, third degree terroristic threatening and second degree assault.

This investigation continues under the supervision of Detective Sgt. Jennifer Arbogast.

“Our Officers responded to this call not knowing what they would encounter upon arrival," stated Glasgow police chief Guy Turcotte. "I’m very proud of their prompt action to secure the scene and keep others out of harm’s way. Their diligence at the scene has led to the above stated charges against Ira McDaniel and given opportunity to our detectives to pursue those charges and keep another alleged criminal off the streets of our city”.
