Friday night around 9 PM, Henderson County Sheriff deputies were dispatched to the area of Kennedy Circle to serve a warrant service.

Deputies went to Paul Schwartz's residence, and upon entry, found 2 children, over 100 used needles containing blood and heroin, and large animal feces in several locations on the property.

Authorities say, they immediately notified social services to begin an investigation after removing the children from the home, taking them with a family member.

Paul Schwartz was subsequently arrested for a felony probation violation and transported to the Henderson County Detention Center.

Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force (PNTF) then took over and discovered heroin, marijuana, and several variants of pills located on the scene.

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
