LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB-TV)--Two Louisville men have taken Metro Police on a tour of dozens of homes and neighborhoods. The homes have all recently been burglarized. Police say they men are familiar with the homes because they are serial burglars.
Jeffrey Harris and Eulas Garmon are accused of breaking into as many as 70 homes across Kentuckiana. One of those homes belongs to Kara Mudd and her family.
"We were actually planning to go to the beach that afternoon...like take some nice pictures. We had all these nice plans," says Mudd.
It was all a few weeks ago. That's when Mudd's mini dream vacation turned into somewhat of a nightmare. She says, "Got a phone call essentially from a detective saying that someone had been in our house while we were gone."
Metro police say it was Harris and Garmon who burglarized Mudd's home while her family was away.
She says, "They took like my husband's big TV...all of my jewelry, camera, laptop."
Police say the men hit dozens of homes in counties across the area.
"Jefferson county, Oldham County, Shelby County, Spencer county, Meade County, Nelson County, Bullitt County," says Detective Kevin Peak, with LMPD.
The men are also accused of breaking into several homes in southern Indiana...and police have been able to identify most of them with help from the suspects.
"He pointed out willingly several locations to us and we spent many days riding and finding these locations."
And despite dozens of break ins, police say there were actually two kinds of homes that these suspects tried to avoid.
Peak says, "They wouldn't touch a house that had an American flag because they were patriotic and they would very seldom touch a house that had an alarm sign out in the front yard."
Police have returned thousands of dollars in valuables but police still need help finding out who some of this jewelry belongs to.
"A pocket watch and some silver and just maybe a gold chain," says Peak.
"They took about $6-7,000 worth of stuff...we got some of it back," says Mudd.
Of course Kara Mudd is glad to have her valuables back and the suspects behind bars but it's all still a little strange.
She says, "I feel a little bit better it's just the fact that someone has been in your home...that's the scary part of it."
