Burglary suspect arrested at motel

A burglary suspect is in jail, after he was shot at by the victim.

Our cameras were at the Sunset Motel on Georgetown Road in Lexington early Tuesday as police arrested the suspect.

We found at least two bullet holes in the suspect's minivan.

We are told the victim of the burglary may have opened fire while the suspect was driving away in Nicholas County late Monday night.

Kentucky State Police tracked the suspect's cell phone and tipped off Lexington Police, which assisted in the arrest.

Lexington Police tell us the suspect, his wife and a small child were staying at the motel.

It's not known if the suspect's wife will face any charges.

The suspect, whose name 27 NEWSFIRST is not releasing because police haven't confirmed it to us, is in jail in Bourbon County on charges of theft by deception out of Harrison County and non-payment of fines out of Bourbon County.
