Scott & Madison County trailer thefts possibly connected

MADISON & SCOTT COUNTIES, Ky. (WKYT) -- We've learned a string of trailer thefts in two central Kentucky counties could be connected.

In a series of trailer thefts in Madison County one of the victims was a Richmond police officer.

Police in Scott County now say they've been investigating similar thefts in the Victoria Estates neighborhood.

The Scott County sheriff's office says a Richmond man confessed to the thefts in their county after they arrested him for a parole violation today.

Police in Madison County are now investigating to see if the same man is behind the trailer thefts there.
