A Verona man has been charged for a series of daytime burglaries dating back to April of this year.
Deputies were called to Carr
Road in Verona around 11 a.m. Monday for the report of a suspicious
man driving a black Jeep who had told a resident he was looking for his dog. She thought it odd as he left so she followed
him and obtained the license number on the Jeep.
Recognizing the description of the Jeep as
possibly being used in other burglaries in the area, deputies converged on the
area but were unable to locate it.
Shortly thereafter, the driver of the Jeep was found pawning a chainsaw
at a pawnshop in Florence.
Tyler Drew, 22, of the 15,000
block of Southfork Church Road in Verona was brought back to the
Sheriff's Office and interviewed by investigators where he admitted to
involvement in eight burglaries where he took a variety of goods ranging from
firearms, cameras, lawn equipment, money, jewelry, and a television.
Drew's modus operandi was to approach a home
and knock on the door. If someone
answered he would ask if they were selling hay or if they had seen his lost
dog. If there was no answer he would
gain entry to the residence.
Detectives have recovered
much of the stolen property and are working on getting it back to the victims
whose homes are located between the 11,000 and 15,000 blocks of US-42,
Verona-Mudlick Road, Richwood Road, and Carr Road.
