LANCASTER — Three area men — one of them a suspect in two vehicle thefts — are in jail after allegedly stealing about 40 guns and other goods from a Lancaster pawn shop this week.
Kentucky State Police arrested Woodey Gabbard Embry, 29, and Jeremiah D. Gregory, 18, both of Lancaster, and Tyler Jessie Roberts, 20, of Danville and charged all three with first-degree burglary, Trooper Jon Allen said.
Roberts also is a suspect in a break-in at DB Automotive in Nicholasville, during which a Nissan Maxima was stolen and later found burned in the Mount Hebron area of Garrard County. When police arrested Roberts on Wednesday in Madison County, he was driving an Infiniti allegedly stolen from a Garrard County dealership, police said.
The three men emerged as burglary suspects during a joint investigation by KSP, the Garrard County Sheriff’s Office, Nicholasville Police Department and other agencies, Allen said.
