LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Four people have been arrested after police say they were caught damaging property at a local car lot.
The alleged incident took place at the Bob Montgomery Chevrolet-Honda car lot on Dixie Hwy., near Lower Hunters Trace.
According to an arrest report, a Louisville Metro Police detective patrolling the car lot saw a "suspicious" 2004 red Lincoln parked on the lot with its lights out. Police say they saw multiple suspects shattering windows of two Chevy Cruze vehicles and removing parts from one of them.
When officers identified themselves as police, the suspects scattered, running southbound and refusing to stop. Police caught up with the suspects as they attempted to jump a fence. All suspects were arrested without further incident.
Police say they found several tools inside one of the Chevy Cruze vehicles, including a drill, a flashlight and a screwdriver police say were used to break into the vehicle and disable its alarm. A metal pipe was used to smash windows, according to the report.
Several officers responded, and police say they were able to arrest four suspects: 26-year-old Michel Martinez Puig, 23-year-old Carlos Turrellas-Arias, 27-year-old Rene Cobarrubia-Costa and 22-year-old Fornaris Y. Castillo.
They're charged with theft by unlawful taking, fleeing and evading and criminal mischief.
