Two arrested in Whitley County burglary attempt

Two people are in jail in Whitley County, arrested in what police call a bizarre burglary attempt.

The Corbin News Journal reports neighbors called police when they spotted two people around an abandoned home in the Rockholds community.

Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell was the first on the scene and arrested 42 year old Eric Wayne Flowers, who told him he was just looking for a pregnant horse.

Neighbors then spotted a woman, 40 year old Candice Louise Dodd, running from the back of the home.

She was captured later in the nearby woods and told officers she was looking for Peat Moss.

Both are facing several charges.
