With help from the community, the Spencer County Sheriff’s Department solved a burglary, recovered the stolen property and got a confession from the man responsible in a matter of five days.
James M. Glover, 19, of Taylorsville, faces charges of tampering with physical evidence and third-degree burglary as a result of the incident.
Sheriff Donald “Buddy” Stump said his department received a report of a burglary in the 100 block of Dogwood Circle that occurred around Aug. 14. Items stolen included a flat screen TV, Xbox with several games, two computers and a speaker system.
On Friday afternoon, the department received a tip concerning the burglary. After following up on the tip, the sheriff’s office located the flat screen TV at a pawn shop in Jefferson County. Other items were located in a wooded area off Dawson Hill Road. Stump said he was unsure if it was the portion of the road in Bullitt or Jefferson county.
The sheriff’s office contacted Glover, who was suspected in the case, and “convinced him to cooperate in the investigation,” according to a news release.
On Monday, Glover came into the sheriff’s department and returned additional stolen items.
“The subject gave a full confession,” the news release said.
Glover was issued a criminal citation to appear in Spencer District Court, but a time and date had not been entered onto the online docket as of Tuesday afternoon.
