Man arrested in Cynthiana drug, theft bust

CYNTHIANA, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a Cynthiana man had a
half-million dollars worth of stolen property in his garage.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported the goods had been stolen
over 25 years from the automotive company where Charles Helton
worked.

Sgt. Wilber Gross of the Cynthiana Police Department called it
"quite a sight." It took two days and several rental trucks to
collect the property, which ranged from thousands of gloves to
drill presses, lubricants and nuts and bolts.

Police said the goods were stolen from T1 Automotive.

The 53-year-old Helton was charged with several felonies,
including receiving stolen property and selling drugs.

Investigators said Helton obtained prescription drugs in Florida
by using a fake medical test.
