A single-vehicle crash in Carroll County on Monday led to the arrest of two people from Clarksville, Ind. who might be responsible for a string of burglaries in Carroll and Trimble counties earlier the same day.
Kentucky State Police Post 5 in Campbellsburg responded to the scene of an accident on Ghent Eagle South Road around 2:50 p.m.
After arriving at the scene, Trooper Dave Roberts found the driver of the vehicle, 28-year-old Kyle Bullard to be intoxicated, and identified several items in the wrecked vehicle that looked suspicious, Post 5 spokesman Brad Arterburn said.
Roberts began talking with Bullard and a passenger in the car, 27-year-old Heather Montgomery, about the items in the vehicle.
Carroll County sheriff deputies informed Roberts that some of the items were linked to burglaries at three homes in Carroll County and one home in Trimble County, Arterburn said.
Another passenger in the vehicle, 27-year old Thomas Montgomery, also of Clarksville, was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital for injuries from the crash, but has since been released.
Bullard faces charges of driving while intoxicated, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary, receiving stolen property, assault, possession of a controlled substance in the first degree, possession of a controlled substance in the second degree, possession of burglar's tools, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and tampering with physical evidence.
Heather Montgomery faces charges of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary, receiving stolen property, possession of a controlled substance in the first degree, possession of a controlled substance in the second degree and possession of stolen tools.
Thomas Montgomery has not been charged.
