LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Fayette County Sheriff's deputies arrested 21 year-old Jesse Williams Friday after UK Police issued a warrant for Williams back in May. UK Police charged Williams with burglary and receiving stolen property. We reported on Williams, as one of Fayette County's "Most Wanted," back in May.

UK Police Chief Joe Monroe says Williams and his girlfriend were found trespassing in the Reynolds Warehouse in April. He says evidence of someone living in the building, and drug paraphernalia, were found in a secluded area later that month. Police also found stolen property in the building. Chief Monroe says investigators determined Williams was responsible and filed a warrant for his arrest in May.

Deputies were able to serve that warrant on Friday. Williams is now in the Fayette County Detention Center on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property, and theft by deception.

Chief Monroe says the university is building a new art studio, which will have a new security system. It should be complete sometime next year.
