LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Harrison County Sheriff's Department has arrested two men they say are responsible for thefts from multiple vehicles throughout the county.
According to a news release, there were 17 documented reports of theft from vehicles parked in the driveways of residences within the county between May 24 and May 28. Items stolen from the vehicles included firearms, cash, wallets, purses, identification, check books, credit cards and computer laptops.
Authorities executed a search warrant at a New Albany property after the Harrison County Sheriff's Department identified a suspect who used credit cards taken in one of the thefts. While searching that location, authorities say they found evidence that linked two suspects to the crimes.
On Monday night, 26-year-old Jerry Ray Cooper of New Albany was arrested. A short time later, Harrison County deputies arrested 29-year-old Rodney Darrell Campbell of Charlestown at his home. Both men face preliminary charges of theft, and are being housed in the Harrison County Jail.
Authorities say they have recovered numerous items taken in the thefts, including laptops, identifications, credit cards and firearms.
