LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A couple attempting to burglarize a home brought their child along with them.

On July 23, a resident of Granvil Drive near Buechel Park called police after coming home to witness a man running out of his house carrying his television. According to police reports, the victim also spotted a car speeding away from the location.

The owner of the home was able to give police a description of the car and license plate number. Officers found the car and pulled it over a short distance away.

After being read her Miranda Rights, Amanda Burnett, 24, admitted to police she had dropped a man off at the home and was waiting to pick him up at the park. She identified the man as 26-year-old Catlin Tinnell.

Police observed a child in the car with Burnett. She said she fled with their child in the car and Tinnell fled on foot when the resident came home.

Tinnell's criminal history reveals he is already a wanted fugitive and has several previous theft convictions.

Police reported the side door of the house was kicked in and the television was abandoned in the back yard.

Burnett was charged with second degree burglary. Tinnell was not found.
