Officials with the sheriff's department tell Mountain News a deputy was investigating a burglary call on Monday at a house in the Fairview community.

When he got to the scene, the two suspects, 39 year old Aaron Burnett and a juvenile, ran out the back door.

Officers say the two were stealing copper from the home.

Burnett is being held in the Whitley County jail.

The juvenile was cited and released.
