LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man has been arrested for two burglaries in the Highview area, both of which were witnessed.
The first burglary happened March 5 in the 5700 block of E. Manslick Road. Video from the home security system captured a gold Nissan Maxima dropping off Jason E. Brewer, 39, breaking into the home through a back window.
The video also showed the car, which was being driven by Brewer's wife, Melissa Brewer, driving back and forth several times in front of the home. The couple used two-way radios to communicate while committing the crime.
The second burglary happened March 27 in the 6500 block of E. Manslick Road. It was witnessed by two children inside the house. Brewer fled, but the children were able to get the license number of the car.
Brewer was picked up on May 8 in the 5600 block of Preston Highway and taken to LMPD 7th Division headquarters on the Outer Loop. During a break in the questioning and while detectives had left the interview room, Brewer opened the door to the hallway to see if anyone was watching. Seeing no one in view, Brewer tried to leave through a back door but was caught by another detective entering the building.
In addition to two counts of burglary, Brewer is also charged with escape.
