LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

On Sunday night, a juvenile’s curiosity ended with legal reprimands.

A 17-year-old male was released to the custody of his parents and a future appearance in juvenile court after he broke into a neighbor’s home.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott answered the complaint call, arriving at the residence on McKinley Lane, 11 miles south of London, around 9 p.m.

As he investigated the area, Parrott found a chair situated by a rear window of the home. The window had been raised for entrance into the home.

Parrott followed suit, climbing into the chair and through the window into the house. As he searched the home, he located the male juvenile hiding under a bed. The juvenile told Parrott he knew his neighbors were not at home, so he thought he would break in and look around. The juvenile was cited for second-degree burglary and the case will now be heard in juvenile court.
