His alleged partner in crime, 37-year-old Ronald "Tony" Hagan, also of Louisville, got away Tuesday, but was taken into custody Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, a concerned citizen called the Hillview Police Department to report two men loading items into a truck behind Domino's located at 6434 North Preston Highway. When officers arrived, they attempted to make contact with the two men, but they quickly got into the truck and drove off at what the officers said was a high rate of speed toward Shepherdsville.
