(HODGENVILLE, KY) On Monday, May 07, 2012 at approximately 1:00 p.m. ET KSP Troopers responded to a residence on White City Road in Hodgenville, KY in attempt to serve a Hardin County warrant on 40 year old Jeffrey W. Metcalf. Metcalf is a Larue County Constable and was wanted for Theft By Deception (cold checks) out of Hardin County. Troopers were met at the door of the residence by Metcalf's girlfriend.
