Woman says man tried to steal her car after she stopped for roadway obstruction

SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office has issued a citizens alert after a woman said someone tried to steal her car while she tried to move something blocking the roadway.

Around 1 a.m., Aug. 12, a woman and her daughter were on Zoneton Road near Stave Mill Road.
