LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man has been charged with burglary after he gained access to a secure area at Churchill Downs.

An arrest report says Anthony Edison, 22, of Louisville, was wearing a construction helmet when he entered the money room at the track on June 12. When employees asked if he was there to work on something, Edison nodded yes.

The report says Edison then entered the secure office and began to change into a Churchill Downs uniform. Track security officers were called and held Edison until Louisville Metro Police arrived.

Edison was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections and scheduled to be arraigned on June 13.
