LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man charged in connection with stealing from day cares in St. Matthews plead guilty in the case, but will not spend any more time behind bars.

Louisville Metro police say Tamara Jenkins and Duane Acklin would enter the daycares pretending to be parents interested in touring the facilities. While taking tours of the facilities officers said the two stole employees wallets and purses.
