LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Louisville men have been arrested and charged with theft after a witness saw them looking into parked cars in Cherokee Park.
27-year-old Antonio Goldsberry and 22-year-old Jordan Cotten also face charges of possessing burglary tools.
A police report says a witness saw them looking into parked cars at Dog Hill in Cherokee Park Thursday night. The suspects drove away, and when officers got to the scene, they found a woman whose car had been broken into. A purse, iPod, stun gun, beauty products, and credit cards had been stolen.
Officers found the suspects and a car matching the description witnesses had given at the BP station at Hancock and Broadway. When they searched the car, police say they found the iPod and stun gun, which the victim identified as her property. Police say they also found a large screwdriver which had pry marks on it.
Police say they went to that particular BP because they had learned that credit cards from previous break-ins had been used there.
LMPD says it has been coping with a string of car break-ins in several areas, including the Highlands, east of downtown, and along River Road.
