Main Street break-ins lead to two arrests

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Burglars hit two North Main Street businesses and nearby vehicles last Friday, breaking in windows and checking unlocked cars.  The London Police Department arrested a Corbin resident and a 14-year-old minor.

Michael S. Taylor, of N. Ky. 1223 in Corbin, and an unnamed 14-year-old minor were both charged with third-degree burglary, first- and second-degree criminal mischief, and receiving stolen property under $10,000.  The juvenile was charged with a detention pick-up order.

Police received a call from Laurel Village Security on alert after they heard glass breaking at the Computer Clinic on Main Street.  Officers arrived to discover the glass scattered at both Computer Clinic and Morgan Motors. Both suspects admitted to breaking out the front windows to the two businesses.

While they searched the area in attempt to locate the suspects, a call came into the London Communications Center regarding suspicious subjects walking in the area.  Sgt. Steve Walker of the Kentucky State Police assisted police, locating two males walking on 16th Street.

Walker found the two in possession of several stolen items from Computer Clinic.  According to the report, the two are also suspected of breaking into nearby unlocked vehicles.  

Assisting in the investigation was London Police Sgt. Eric Wilkerson, Officers William Jones, Scotty Wilson, KSP Sgt. Steve Walker and Deputy Justin Walker.

Officer Scotty Wilson is continuing the investigation.
