LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two men are behind bars after police say they caught them with several stolen rent checks.

Willie Owens, 27, and 30-year-old Lawrence Parr are both charged with burglary.

Police say they caught Owens trying to break into an apartment complex rental office near Jefferson Mall. He says he and Parr -- who was found in a car -- were trying to steal rent checks.

Inside the car, police say they found checks stolen from the Willows of Plainview apartments off Hurstbourne Parkway and from the Cooper Creek Village Apartments off Preston Highway.

Police say Owens admitted to cashing some stolen checks at two different Kroger stores.
