Pair arrested in connection to burglaries

Police say they've arrested two people that they think could be behind a string of home burglaries.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office charged Michael Holt and Treva Chappell with burglary.

One of the victims told us he walked in on the suspects going through his home and scared them off!

“Some of the stuff was crazy stuff. the girl went upstairs and she had my daughter's underclothes in a garbage bag,” Melvin Bowling said.

Deputies say they arrested Holt Sunday night after one of the burglary victims confronted him and chased him with a gun.

They also say they found many of the items stolen during the burglaries, inside Chappell's home.
