Private Detective: Police Search for Man Who Breaks Into Equipment Trucks

Thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment was stolen from Barney Miller’s on East Main Street.

Police say they believe the man who broke into equipment trucks at Barney Miller’s has done his share of breaking and entering before.

“These guys are very frequent. People always hear about people breaking into cars. This guy takes it to a totally different level,” said Detective Mark Thomas with the Lexington Police Department.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

They say that on April 18th, the man, with an accomplice, drove into the back parking lot of Barney Milley’s and busted open the side windows of the trucks before crawling in and shutting the door.

“Once he gets inside, he does a very good job concealing himself inside the van, so he’s not sitting there with the door open. He knew it would draw attention to himself,” said Thomas.

Police say he gathered tools and equipment used for audio and video installation and loaded it up into his vehicle multiple times.

“This guy had scouted in advance,” said Thomas. “He knew exactly what he was doing, and he has extensive experience in this.”

Barney Miller’s is on the same block as the police station.

“This is about a block away from the police department. You can’t expect to break into a business in our backyard and have us not come after you,” said Thomas.

Crime Stoppers is offering cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. You can call in your tip at (859) 253-2020 and you can text your tip to CRIMES, 274-637. Just text LEX P-D and your tip.

Private Detective: Man Leads Police on Chase in Stolen RV

A stolen motorhome is back where it belongs after a rocky ride in Scott County. Now the thief is behind bars after leading police on a chase.

Georgetown police say it was a woman living near Pine Tree Path who reported a suspicious vehicle in her neighborhood. On the way there, an officer spotted an RV matching the description that woman gave near K-mart.

“Upon arrival and running the license plate, it was found to be stolen from Lexington,” Lt. Brian Moore with Georgetown police says.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

When that officer tried to pull over the RV, the driver took off.

“He drove around the back of a business got on Paris Pike and at that point was fleeing,” LT Moore added.

The chase then took them through downtown. The man behind the wheel side swiped at least one, possibly two vehicles, along the way.

When the driver turned off of Main street, he ended up here North Royal Springs Avenue which is a dead end, but he kept going.

“Good thing it was during the day because there are kids that live around here. I’m just glad they weren’t around and nobody got hurt,” neighbor, Curtis Brown said.

After plowing through a fence and driving through several yards, the Northside rental RV got stuck and the driver got caught.

30-year-old Jason Judd was arrested.

The motorhome was taken back to the police station. We were there when employees came to pick it up.

“I knew there would be damage on the front end but I didn’t realize the damage it would be to the roof and sides. There’s quite a bit of damage here,” Chad Ecklar, Northside RV employee said.

Although an official estimate has not been given, workers guess thousands of dollars of damage was done. Inside, they found TV’s were missing along with drug paraphernalia.

Judd faces charges including fleeing and evading first degree, wanton endangerment first degree, and receiving stolen property of more than 10-thousand dollars, along with a warrant that was served for another agency.

LT. Moore tells LEX 18′s Evan Gorman he’s glad no one was hurt.
