NICHOLASVILLE — A burglary suspect who has eluded capture remains at large, but state police arrested a Nicholasville man with whom the suspect may have stayed.
Quentin Overstreet, 23, was arrested Wednesday at his home on Arrowhead Drive while police were executing a search warrant in connection with their efforts to locate Paul David Brown.
Brown, 31, has multiple warrants in four central Kentucky counties and got away from police on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
While executing the warrant Wednesday with officers from Nicholasville Police Department, state police recovered stolen items, including a 2009 Honda motorcycle, a 2006 Polaris all-terrain vehicle and five handguns.
Crack cocaine and other controlled substances also were found in the residence.
State police charged Overstreet with two counts of receiving stolen property less than $10,000, five counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, defacing a firearm, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and second-degree possession of a controlled substance. He was lodged in the Jessamine County Detention Center.
Brown allegedly led Garrard County deputies and Lancaster police on a lengthy chase Friday that ended when his truck crashed near Buckeye and he escaped on foot.
On Monday, Nicholasville police saw Brown in what was believed to be a stolen car parked in front of a house. When officers approached the vehicle, Brown drove through several backyards and eluded police.
Warrants have been issued for Brown in both Garrard and Jessamine counties related to the incidents.
He has outstanding warrants for burglary in Lincoln County and is wanted for questioning in connection with a string of car break-ins in Mercer County and other open cases in Boyle County.
