More Teens Arrested; Evidence Online


The sheriff says this case is unrelated to the two teens arrested after posting alleged crimes on you-tube, but it's almost the same story. this time they were investigating a home burglary, and found a video on myspace-dot com of the crime...now four young people are arrested.

Officers say no one has lived in this old home in South Williamson for years, but there's still plenty inside. Deputies say someone broke down the door and stole several items....but the investigation didn't take long after a deputy got a tip to check out a page on myspace-dot com. For the second time in two weeks, they saw a video on the internet of the crime they're investigating.

"Absolutely, I'm surprised," says Pike County Sheriff Charles Keessee. "I don't know how to explain it."

Deputies arrested four people in the video, Nick Newsome, Ashley Butcher, Kayla Rose, and Jessica May.

"Evidently, they thought to them it was fun and games, but this is a serious matter that we take seriously." says the Sheriff.

They four are charged with burglary and criminal mischief. Officers recovered most of the stolen items.

still, investigators say it leaves a trail for them to follow.
