Deputies Searching for Arson Suspect in McCracken County

The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in tracking down 25-year-old Vaden W. Rupcke of Paducah. Rupcke is wanted by authorities in connection with the arson of a trailer on January 28, 2020. The trailer was not occupied, but was being used for storage. Deputies say Rupcke was in a dispute with the property owner earlier in the day. He was later indicted by a McCracken County Grand Jury and was scheduled for an arraignment in November. The sheriff’s office said Rupcke failed to show up for his court date. Rupcke is described as 5-feet, 6-inches tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. The sheriff’s office released a new photo of Rupcke which shows him with facial hair and a tattoo on the right shoulder.
