Owens and his accomplices committed the burglary on June 29, according to an arrest warrant. They got inside the home by breaking out a back window and took jewelry and other items.

After the homeowner was notified by his alarm system about the burglary, he went to check on his house. The warrant says after the man went inside he was confronted by Owens, who was holding a gun and pointed it at him.

As the homeowner fled from Owens, Louisville Metro police arrived on the scene. Owens and the others were able to avoid capture.
