There has been another break-in at a southern Kentucky animal shelter.

The shelter's manager believes the same person might be responsible for all the thefts.

Knox-Whitley County Animal Shelter Director Amy Young says she was on vacation out of the country when she got the call from an employee that someone broke into the animal shelter again.

Young says she believes she might know who's responsible.

The county's animal shelter director is not naming any names but says she believes a former employee is the one to blame for at least five break-ins.

Young says the latest happened two Saturday's ago and there was little damage and only a camera phone was stolen.

“I feel like it is someone who definitely knows the system maybe a previous employee or someone who spent a lot of time there at the shelter because they know how to work around our alarm system,” Animal Shelter Director, Amy Young, said.

Young says her associate called the Whitley County Sheriff's Department at the time of the break-in, but they didn't come to investigate.

However, WYMT’s Peter O’Connor talked to Whitley County Sheriff Lawrence Hodge just moments ago and he said a car was sent out after logs showed the shelter requested extra patrols only
