LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB)--Local police have made a disturbing connection in a series of recent break-ins across the state. Police say the same woman who asked her 17 year old son to break into homes and cars here in Louisville was the getaway driver when he went into a Meade County home.
Police say call Krystal Groves anything but mother love.
"She had her son break into her neighbor's home, actually she went into the home and helped carry the items back to her house," says Det. Kevin Peak, with LMPD.
In September, metro police arrested Groves and her 17-year-old son for allegedly breaking into their neighbor's home in the south end.
"I guess she drove her son to the place where the burglary was committed," says Det. Peak.
And now police have connected the two to a burglary in Meade County. As a car pulls up to a driveway in Ekron, Kentucky in Meade County, two men get out and walk right past a surveillance camera. Once inside the home one of the suspects doesn't even take time to pull his pants up as they take computers, TVs and other electronics.
"It's pretty clear video actually when they walk in," says Trooper Norman Chaffins, with Kentucky State Police. Kentucky State Police are working the Meade County break in and say the video and car led them to the suspects.
Trooper Chaffins says, "We were able to get a tag number off the vehicle and it came back to Krystal Groves and Krystal Groves is somebody that we'd like to talk to."
And KSP will get a chance to do just that. On Thursday morning, Metro Police caught up with Groves as she was making a court appearance. Det. Peak says, "We sent someone down there and they picked her up as she walked into court."
You can not see Groves in the video, but police say the other two are her son and boyfriend, and suspect she's behind the wheel.
Trooper Chaffins says, "Obviously in the video there was somebody driving the car because one of the suspects got in the passenger side and the other got in the back seat so someone had to be driving that vehicle when they pulled up to the residence."
Police believe the 17-year-old has broken into at least 60 cars in south Louisville.
