Pursuit leads to arrest of multiple Burglary suspects
Date of News Release: 12/08/2010
(Columbia, Ky.) -- Three people have been arrested following a pursuit through two counties that lasted almost one hour and involved 20 plus law enforcement officers from 5 different agencies. The Kentucky State Police have arrested 42-year-old Donald G. Brockman of Lexington, 25-year-old Jacquelyn Renee Smith of Campbellsville and 31-year-old Timothy Ray Curry of Campbellsville and charged all three with Burglary 2nd degree.
At approximately 7:57 CST Post 15 received a call from the Taylor County 911 center advising that they were working a home invasion and had a description of a white 98-99 Chevy Camaro as a suspect vehicle with 2 males and 1 female passenger. Within minutes of the first call, they notified Post 15 that a Taylor County Deputy was in pursuit of the vehicle.
Over the course of the next 57 minutes, Troopers, Detectives and CVE units from Post 15, officers with the Green County Sheriff's Office and Greensburg Police Department and officers with the Taylor County Sheriff's Office and Campbellsville Police Department converged on the suspect vehicle. The Kentucky State Police were able to deploy a Stinger Tire Deflation Device at KY 0210 and the KY 3183 which effectively slowed the suspect vehicle.
At one point during the pursuit, units lost sight of the suspect vehicle when the driver pulled behind a residence on Winding Ridge Road in Green County. In an attempt to avoid the police they forced their way into a residence where they were confronted by a home owner. The homeowner discharged a firearm at them, forcing the suspects back into the car and onto the highway enabling law enforcement to re-engage in the pursuit.
The suspects made it to a church parking lot off of Meador Street in Campbellsville where they were all three apprehended following a short foot pursuit. All three suspects will be lodged in the Taylor County Detention Center. The investigation is on going and additional charges are expected.
