Afternoon Update: Couple caught in the act of alleged burglary

GLASGOW — The Glasgow Police Department caught two alleged burglars in the act at Commonwealth Broadcasting early Friday morning. One of the people arrested was reportedly a former employee of the station.

Lt. Col. James Duff was conducting surveillance of the building due to complaints that Robert and Alicia A. Hunter, 113 Vine St., Glasgow, had been entering the building after closing hours and taking items, according to a release by the GPD.

The owner of the building, Steve Newberry, had witnessed the two entering the building at other times, so he requested police surveillance of the building.

At about 2:50 a.m., the Hunters entered the building and went to the fourth floor. They attempted to leave the building in a maroon Pontiac Grand Am. Newberry was contacted and told police they were not allowed on the property, the release stated.

Both were arrested and taken to the Barren County Detention Center, charged with third-degree burglary.

At about noon Friday, GPD officers went to 113 Vine Street with search warrants and collected stolen property from Commonwealth Broadcasting, including confidential documents, according to Chief Guy Turcotte.

Robert Hunter, 53, is being held on $2,500 cash bond. Alicia Hunter, 48, who is also listed under the alias Stacy Haynes,remains in custody on $2,500 cash bond.

More information will be released Friday afternoon, Turcotte said.
