Sheriff's Deputies Catch Fugitive In Scott County

A fugitive on the run out of Tennessee has been caught "red-handed" in Scott County.

The Scott County Sheriff's Department says they responded to a call of a burglary in progress on Burton pike.

That's where they say they found Shane Tegtmeier carrying property from the home's garage.

The homeowner says the total value of the property is around $745.

Tegtmeier has been arrested and charged with burglary and theft.

Sheriff's deputies later learned he is wanted for a parole violation for the same charges out of Tennessee.
