Henderson, KY 1/21/2023- On Tuesday, the Henderson Joint Task Force along with the Kentucky State Police made a traffic stop on a vehicle northbound on Interstate 69 in Henderson near the Henderson city limits.
According to officials, the vehicle was being operated by a Bradley Brewer, 50 of Evansville, who was traveling north from Madisonville, KY. Investigators say a Dana Thomas, 40 of Henderson, was a passenger in the vehicle.
