Police arrest the waving burglar

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- US Marshals arrest a man wanted for a series of home break-ins in Bullitt County.

They say they found Donnie Deacon on Evelyn Avenue in Louisville Tuesday afternoon. Earlier Tuesday, Bullitt County Police issued a warrant for Deacon's arrest, along with 36-year-old Christopher Vegas and a 17-year-old boy. Police believe the three are behind a string of burglaries, including at least one where a firearm was taken.

A surveillance video shows three people breaking into a home in Shephardsville. One of the men can be seen looking at the camera and waving. Police tips from that video led to the suspects, but investigators still need help finding others.

"We believe Vegas is a danger, and he definitely needs to be brought in. We prefer he turns himself in," says Det. Sgt. Mike Murdoch of the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department.

If you have any information on Vegas' whereabouts you're asked to contact Bullitt County police.
