Graves County woman arrested after children found in roadway
15-year-old Hickory woman charged with two counts of First Degree Wanton Endangerment (Class D Felony)
Note: Charges/allegations are not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by law enforcement is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.

Kentucky State Police Post 1, Mayfield, KY
LOWES, KY (Sun 13 Aug 2017) - Kentucky State Police arrested a Graves County woman Sunday morning after two small children were found walking in the roadway. At approximately 9:30amCT, on Sunday, August 13, KSP received a call reporting two small children were observed walking in the roadway near the 5000 block of Highway 339 North in Graves County.
Trooper Aaron Jestes responded and located the children along with the caller, who had assisted in moving the children to a safe place out of the roadway. The children were 2 and 4 years old and were unharmed. Shortly thereafter, Trooper Jestes located Hannah Taber asleep inside a nearby residence. Preliminary investigation has shown Ms.Taber was responsible for the children but was unaware of their location. It was also confirmed a similar incident had occurred involving the same children in the recent past.
Hannah M. Taber, age 25, of Hickory, Kentucky, was arrested and charged with two counts of First Degree Wanton Endangerment (Class D Felony). She was lodged in the Graves County Jail.
The investigation is continuing by Trooper Aaron Jestes. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555. Citizens may also report tips anonymously through the KSP app. The app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android applications and can be easily downloaded free of charge through Apple and Google Play stores.]
