SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Bullitt County Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for stealing thousands of dollars worth of televisions.

35-year-old Teddy Stinson was arraigned in Shepherdsville Monday on more than 20 counts of theft.

According to investigators, Stinson hit four storage and RV facilities in Bullitt County, another four in Jefferson County and is facing charges in Nelson County as well. Police say they also have Stinson's DNA and fingerprints from multiple crime scenes.

Stinson told police he started his crime spree after going to the Boat and RV show at the Fairgrounds.

"He went into some of these RVs and seen these nice TVs and thought what a way to make a buck and he actually, that's where he came up with the idea," said Lt. Scotty McGaha of the Bullitt County Sheriffs Office.

U.S. Marshals had been tracking Stinson on a prior warrant out of Bullitt County from Tennessee and across Kentucky.
