HARRODSBURG - Joseph and Rebecca Wilson, the couple allegedly caught on surveillance tape during the burglary of a Mercer County home, surrendered to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department Monday afternoon.
"They just walked in and said they wanted to turn themselves in," Karen Lakes said today. She said they arrived between 2-2:30 p.m. Chief Mercer County Deputy Sheriff Rick Moberly said Monday that he had heard the pair wanted to turn themselves in on Sunday, but it did not happen.
The couple were transported from the Lincoln County jail to the Boyle County Detention Center at about 10 p.m. Monday by Mercer County Deputy Sheriff Chris Kehrt, the deputy said.
The couple were allegedly the people recorded on a surveillance tape while burglarizing the home of the Bruce Ashford family on Sexton Lane. Personal items and electronics, all valued at more than $1,400, were taken from the Mercer County home.
