Frankfort Police make arrest in Humane Society burglary

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Frankfort Police announced an arrest in a burglary at the Franklin County Humane Society.

Detectives arrested Jacob West, 24, on Tuesday afternoon.

Early in November, someone broke in and stole close to $3,000 from the shelter.

"We had had two days of adoptions - 10 on Thursday and nine on Friday - and so we had a lot of transactions in the safe," said Kerry Lowary.

Then on November 29, someone smashed a window at the animal care shelter and stole petty cash. On the same night, someone also broke into the VFW on East Main Street. Police say West admitted to taking part in the Humane Society burglary and that it's possible West and others are involved in a handful of other burglaries in town.

"When you get one of the persons involved it gives you a bit of hope and it lets the community know, and the Humane Society, that we're working hard on the case," said Captain Chris Quire.
