Another arrest has resulted from a deer camera video posted on the Trigg County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
Sheriff Ray Burnam says the public helped his department identify a second suspect in a theft at a junk yard as 34-year old Jonathan McCoy. He was arrested by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and charged with theft, criminal trespass and tampering with evidence for the incident caught on the deer camera and charged with a second count of theft on an unrelated incident.
Sheriff Burnam says he can’t thank the citizens of Trigg County enough for their help in providing tips and encourages them to continue doing so. McCoy remains in the McCracken County Jail.
