Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office has made an arrest in connection with a burglary that was reported to officials on Thursday, June 15, 2017. The sheriff's office said the report was that the residence in Bee Spring belonging to Lawrence and Susan Newberry had been broken into and several items had been taken.
Shortly after, it was also discovered that a suspect in the burglary, Mr. Derek Logan (28), of Louisville had wrecked his car in Grayson County, and the officer working the wreck found suspicious items in the vehicle, as well as several guns located near the car in the grass.
According to officials, the vehicle was impounded and when the burglary was reported, the sheriff's office became aware of the wreck. Working in conjunction with Grayson County, a search warrant was served by Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins and Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle on the vehicle, and several of the items stolen from the home were located.
The sheriff's office reported that the guns had been taken to the Grayson County evidence room and will be returned next week.

The stolen property ranged from a change jar, a computer, several firearms, tools, and a cell phone. A warrant was obtained by Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle for Logan's arrest and he was lodged in the Hart County Jail. He is currently being charged with Burglary, 2nd Degree and Theft by Unlawful Taking (Firearm).
