A Russell County man arrested overnight for allegedly “Receiving Stolen Property” is now suspected of breaking into homes in Casey and Adair counties as well.
Russell County Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Bertram says 36 year old Wayne Carter of Russell Springs was taken into custody around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday following an investigation throughout Monday evening that resulted in the recovery of several thousand dollars worth of jewelry and other items stolen from several homes.
The most recent burglaries occurred Monday at a residence on Ky. 70 in Casey County and at a residence on Ky. 206 in Adair County.
Carter is in the Russell County Detention Center on a single count of Receiving Stolen Property.
Deputy Bertram says the cases against Carter will be presented to Grand Juries in each of the three counties next month.
