Police say a man staying at the Super 8 Motel saw two men breaking into his truck. They say he chased after them and caught one man, holding him until police arrived.

Police say they found the second suspect in the area a few minutes later, still in possession of some of the stolen property.

Jeffrey "Bud" Collier has been charged with Theft By Unlawful Taking, Receiving stolen Property, Possession Of Marijuana and Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia.

There have been several vehicle break-ins in Nicholasville over the past few weeks. No word yet on whether or not Collier and Bruner will face additional charges.

We have a crew in Nicholasville and we'll bring you more details on this story coming up later today on 27 NEWSFIRST.

    It's good to know that at least 1 thief in Nicholasville has been caught-maybe he will be tried. My daughter and other neighbors were robbed while at work and nothing was done to the thiefs-even though they could identify them-she caught the guy going out her kitchen window. Justice still has been served and the Nicholasville police dept says that there is nothing that they can do. We need a big sign welcoming theifs to Nicholasville-because nothing is ever done to them. Just look at our news paper and see what charges are made-broken tail lights, dui easy stuff for the cops to deal with-robberies are never followed up on. I've even talked to the mayor-he says they can get away with it because you could not prove he stole from you -but his girlfriend pawned some of the items and so happen some of the things came from where she went--she got caught but he took the items from the house. Again if you're a thief come to Nicholasville and nothing will be done to you.

    way to go, glad someone is getting caught, they should cut one hand off when caught stealing, then they only will have one more chance till they cant do it anymore....
