Less than a week after an escape charge, a Nicholasville man now faces several other charges stemming from a string of commercial burglaries throughout the city.
William "Tyler" Burgin, 21, is charged with 10 counts of third-degree burglary and one count of theft by unlawful taking of more than $500, according to a Nicholasville Police Department news release. All counts are Class D felonies punishable by one to five years in prison.
"He was all over," Nicholasville Police Officer Scott Harvey said. "There was really no rhyme or reason to it. He hit everything from a chiropractor's office to a funeral home to an auto parts store. There was really no commonality, it was just where ever he targeted next."
Harvey said targeted stores also included a day care.
"It was just random commercial burglaries," Harvey said.
Burgin is also charged with theft by unlawful taking less than $500, first-degree burglary and second-degree escape. Police have recovered some of the property in the burglaries. Last Tuesday, July 28, Burgin escaped from police custody in Lexington while on a supervised furlough from the Jessamine County Detention Center.
