In an interview with 19-year-old Florencio Espinoza, he quickly tells us he had nothing to do with an early morning burglary at a Winchester BP station.

"Honestly all I can say is I'm innocent until proven guilty," says Florencio Espinoza in an interview with WKYT from the Clark County Detention Center.

We were there as police arrested Espinoza and 19-year-old Christopher Bell after authorities say they broke in this store to steal cigarettes.

"They used bricks to break a window and they came inside and took 20 cartons of cigarettes," says Massoud Pouryadollah, the store employee.

"We were able to track the tracks in the snow from the BP to a residence a couple blocks away," says Captain James Hall with Winchester Police.

Police say inside that apartment, with the two men, were stolen cigarettes. Espinoza doesn't deny it.

"They were stolen. All I can say is I didn't steal them. I'm not gonna put anyone on blast. I'm not gonna say if I know anything," says Florencio Espinoza.
"Are you keeping that information to yourself," we asked him.
"yeah," Espinoza answered.

He still maintains he's innocent.

"I wasn't there, but police believe I was," says Florencio Espinoza.

However, police say they have the men responsible. Both are now behind bars, charged with burglary.

Winchester Police are also looking into whether the two men could be connected to other burglaries in the area.
