Guilty Pleas From Statue Thieves

Guilty pleas were entered on Friday by two Madison County men accused of stealing a statue from a park in Berea.

James "Tony" Adams and Joshua Arnold, who were originally charged with felony theft, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of criminal mischief.

They were sentenced to 90 days in jail, which were conditionally discharged if they have no more further offenses. They also have to pay a fine and perform 100hours of community service.

The pair was caught on a surveillance camera, carrying away the statue which was later found in Garrard County.

    These two were only pulling a prank, they wanted to put the stuatue back, but the police were watching it 24/7. It wouldnt have been gone forever, they had no intention of gaining anything but laughter from this. I know them personally and I know they are really good guys, check their past offenses. Go to Berea Wal-Mart and ask, you will see that people soo loved cant really be that bad.

    If these two wasn't seen by the camera the statue would be gone forever.
