Clark County Sheriff's Deputies arrested three suspects in connection to two burglaries in rural Clark County, near the Fayette County line.

Brant Hessing, William Blake and Walter Chinault are all charged with multiple counts of Burglary and are behind bars.

Sheriff Berl Purdue says thousands of dollars worth of guitars, electronics and a gun were taken from 2 rural Clark County Homes; one on Combs Ferry and the other on Colby Road. Both homes were burglarized earlier this week.

He says many of the stolen items were actually found in a Lexington hotel room, where the suspects were hiding out.

Purdue says he doesn't believe these three 19-year-olds are connected to any other open cases along the Fayette/Clark County line. But, he says he will continue to work with Lexington Investigators to solve the open crimes, because often investigators in both counties come up with the same suspects.
