LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WKYT) - Police say they caught the two men responsible for breaking into a gas station and tearing open the ATM. They say the pair may be behind hundreds of similar crimes.
Lawrenceburg police say thieves used saws and crowbars to get inside the ATM at the Redi Mart on Crossroad Drive on March 18.
The same type of crime took place at the 4 Way Stop N Go on March 8.
Police from London and Campbellsville were searching for thieves who had committed similar crimes.
But it was Lawrenceburg police who were the first to make an arrest. Last Sunday they spotted a car believed to have been involved and inside they found two men and equipment they say tied them to the crimes.
They arrested Johnathan Hall and Kevin Sheehan, charging them both with burglary. Hall was also charged with possession of burglary tools, and possession of a controlled substance.
The detective in charge of the case spent Thursday in Bowling Green meeting with police from several Kentucky agencies, as well as from Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, and Ohio.
He said all together the two men could be behind more than 100 gas station break-ins.
Hall and Sheehan were taken to the Shelby County Detention Center. They're both now out on bail.
