Edmonson Voice Staff Report
A Mammoth Cave man with three outstanding warrants and a suspect in several burglaries was located and arrested in Bowling Green in a multi-agency case involving the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Marshal Service, and Bowling Green Police Department.
Andy Hornback (31) was wanted on a bench warrant for a burglary charge where he pleaded guilty, a criminal trespass warrant, and another warrant for bail jumping.
He is also a suspect in numerous burglaries around the Cave Hollow Bay area. He was spotted by the Cave Hollow Bay Homeowners Association back in June of 2016 but he fled the scene before law enforcement arrived.
A statement from the sheriff's office said they had been close to an arrest of Hornback multiple times but he was able to elude law enforcement. "We got a tip he had moved out of the area so we contacted the marshal service," said Detective Wally Ritter. "They have much better resources to track and locate fugitives and we're very fortunate to have a great working relationship with their office."
Official reports said that the marshal service received a tip that Hornback was staying with his girlfriend in a Bowling Green hotel. He was found by the marshal service and arrested at the Executive Inn on August 8, 2016 around 6pm by Bowling Green Police.
He was transported to the Warren County Regional Jail and transferred to Hart County Jail the next day on a $26,000 cash bond.
His charges include: Bail jumping-first degree, Persistent felony offender, Criminal trespass-first degree, and Burglary second degree.
