PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says a homeowner was able to disarm and hold down a suspect during a home invasion.

At 11:30 Tuesday night, the sheriff's office was contacted about a home invasion with an armed intruder on Wesley Chapel Road. When deputies arrived, the homeowner was holding down the suspect who was identified as 32-year old Shane Longlott of Somerset.

A woman who lives in the home told deputies that they heard someone kick open the backdoor of their home. Her husband was confronted by a man with a shotgun. The husband struggled with the suspect and was able to take away his shotgun. He held the man down until police arrived.

The couple had three children in the home who were not harmed.

The suspect, Shane Longlott, already had warrants out for his arrest when he was caught.

"We had been searching for Mr.Longlott for the last 3 or 4 days because he was a suspect in a burglary that occurred near his home," Public Affairs Officer, Karl Clinard said.

Police say he broke into a home in the Sulphur Springs Hollow Road area.

Longlott is currently being held in the Pulaski County Jail.
