A SMALL GROUP OF MEN WHO WERE CAUGHT ON GLENTUCKY POLICE STATION CAMERAS STEALING A CITY CITATION VEHICLE ARE STILL AT LARGE WEDNESDAY.
Police said the vehicle was stolen from inside the Glentucky Police Dept. parking lot at approx. 11:00 pm on Saturday night.
Surveillance video shows several men tiptoed into the parking lot after climbing a security fence, then climbed onto the vehicle before activating the emergency lights and driving the vehicle from the parking lot.
Neighbors reported they had heard the sounds of breaking bottles, loud laughter and yelling coming from inside the police station lot but thought that "if there was any real problems, the police would already be handling it" since it was on their property and the station is staffed 24 hours a day.
The same neighbor, identified as local resident Mr. Davenport, also stated, "These people they're looking for, well they we're drag racing through the town all day long. It's not like a single resident in town wasn't aware of what was going on..."
Police Chief R. Coltrane said when asked "We know who they are. We've dealt with them previously. We know their family members and we're in the process of contacting them and keeping an eye out for our missing vehicle."
The group will face additional charges of felony trespassing, theft and reckless driving in addition to charges related to a burglary as it was also reported that at least ten cases of non-pasteurized beer, seized last month in a much publicized smuggling bust on Arnold Road. Suspect Cletus Snow is still awaiting trial in that matter. The beer was taken from a refrigerated evidence unit behind the Police station.
Apparently neither the City Citation Vehicle nor the Police Evidence Locker was properly locked at the time.
Anyone with any information on the location of the missing vehicle is asked to report it to the Glentucky Police Dept.
