Fern Creek burglars caught on camera

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Fern Creek man still reeling from the tragic death of his wife has suffered another loss.  Thieves robbed him of some of the possessions he holds closest to his heart.

"They came back through here and just kicked that door in right there," said Jim Hagan, burglary victim.

On Thursday, someone broke into Hagan's home on Seatonville Road in Fern Creek. Actually, it was two people.

"They went in and took a bunch of my wife's jewelry, necklaces, bracelets, rings, a couple of watches and some China and stuff like that," Hagan said.

The thieves took his valuables; however, they left something else behind.

"And hopefully police can catch them, especially with a clear shot.  It was a man and a woman and we got a clear shot of the woman from multiple angles including her face," said Hagan.

Hidden cameras captured images of the thieves coming and going, and the red car they were driving.

"Hopefully police will be able to use that and will catch them," Hagan said.

Hagan is desperate to get his valuables back because most of them belonged to his wife.  She was killed in a freak accident last year while trying to help their son push his car out of a ditch.

"It's her stuff, and you know it's a lot of stuff that I haven't even looked at in a year so," said Hagan.

"We expect a quick resolution, partly because of the evidence that the homeowner was able to give us," said Major Michael Sullivan, commander of the LMPD Seventh Division.

Detectives in the Seventh Division are working the case and say they are confident they'll identify the suspects and have them in custody soon.  "We suspect them for at least one or two here in the 7th division and we're talking to detectives in other divisions," said Major Sullivan.

And the images aren't the only thing the criminals left behind.

Hagan says they tried to take his television but probably dropped it.

"I guess he broke it, he tried to rip it of the wall," said Hagan. "Because it was lying in the front yard over here."

Hagan says his valuables were worth several thousand dollars. 

Anyone with information about the suspects should call the anonymous police tip line at 574-LMPD.
