LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- He recently went door-to-door selling ADT alarm systems, but Louisville Metro Police say home security was on his mind for all the wrong reasons.
According to an arrest report, 27-year-old Gary Stephen Adkins, III is an attempted burglar. And if it hadn't been for an alert homeowner, he might still be on the street.
Police say that on Monday afternoon, a Louisville woman was at her home on Meadow Farms Place, just east of Old Henry Road, when she heard someone knocking on her front door. Moments later, the doorbell rang.
When she looked out the window, she saw a man in a white t-shirt making his way to the side door. From there, she watched him go to the rear door. The homeowner then went to the kitchen window, where police say, she got a good look at him.
That's when he tried to kick in the rear door.
When that didn't work, the homeowner was surprised to see a planter smash through her rear window.
Moments later, the intruder fled in a 2002 silver Nissan four-door, but he didn't get far. The homeowner called police and gave them a detailed description. Based on that, officers were able to stop Gary Stephen Adkins, III not far from the home.
The homeowner was brought to the scene, and she quickly identified Adkins as the intruder. He admitted to throwing the planter through her window.
Police say Adkins' vehicle was full of stolen and "possibly stolen" goods, including a stolen Glock pistol. Officers searched his apartment and also say they found a stolen shotgun, Playstation 3 and speaker system.
Police say they are likely to file further additional charges, as potential victims are being contacted to identify other property in Adkins' possession that may be stolen.
As recently as June, Adkins was in the home security business. Police say he still had contracts and customer information in his possession.
He was charged with attempted burglary and multiple counts of receipt of stolen property.
