SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) - On Monday, Somerset Police Officers responded to the South Campus of the Somerset Community College to a reported burglary.

When officers arrived, they found two buildings on the South Campus had been entered and an extensive amount of criminal mischief had been done inside. Several vending machines were destroyed and several fire extinguishers were discharged by the suspect.

One of the fire extinguishers had been discharged inside a computer lab, which covered the computers with the fire suppression agent. Detectives noticed one computer's keyboard had been used after the fire extinguisher had been sprayed. That computer's network log was analyzed to see if whoever used it might have been the suspect.

According to Somerset Police, the network logs indicated Jared T. Parmley, age 19, of Monticello, accessed the computer network several times over the weekend.

Based upon the network logs, and other physical and forensic evidence, Parmley was arrested and charged with Burglary Third Degree (two counts), and Criminal Mischief First Degree.

He was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.

The investigation is continuing.
