Police recovered $2,000 in stolen property from an early morning burglary spree after a victim recognized a suspect's Chicago Bulls jacket.
Police charged 21-year-old Ridge D. Wilson of Mount Sterling, and 19-year-old Travis Fulz of 111 Magnolia St. for a string of burglaries around College Street, Fox Alley and Burns Avenue Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, Winchester Police Detective Danny Thomas said.
The department had been receiving reports throughout the night of burglaries occurring, he said, including a pair of garages.
The pair were located after they allegedly broke into a home and garage at 220 Boone Ave. around 2 a.m. Wednesday by kicking in the door, which awakened the resident, Thomas said. The woman grabbed a baseball bat for self defense and went to investigate, but saw two men walking out of her house and called 911, he said. She also gave police a description of a jacket one of the suspects was wearing.
