A report of multiple burglaries at a residence in Zollicoffer 
Estates last week has resulted in the arrest of a local man.
    According to Wayne County Sheriff Tim Catron, Sherman Sexton, of 
Monticello, was arrested on Tuesday, August 13 and charged with 
robbery second degree, false imprisonment second degree and driving 
on a D.U.I. suspended license.
    The arrest came after several burglary reports were received by the 
sheriff's department in the early morning on Tuesday, August 13.
    Catron said that Deputy Brad Tucker responded to the first burglary 
in progress report at approximately 2:30 a.m.
    When Tucker arrived at the residence, he found that the intruder had 
not made entrance into the residence and had already left the scene.
    Tucker obtained information from the resident regarding the 
intruder's identity, as well as what they were driving.
    Tucker located a vehicle and stopped it on KY 90 to investigate.
    As he was interviewing the driver of the vehicle, he received 
another call regarding a burglary in progress at the same residence.
    Catron stated that when Tucker returned to the residence he learned 
that the incident involved two suspects. The suspects had left the 
scene prior to his arrival.
    Later, a third call was received of another burglary in progress at 
the same residence, according to Catron. He said that Tucker 
responded and the suspect had already left before he arrived. Tucker 
said that this call involved a different individual and vehicle. He 
attempted to locate the people involved.
    At approximately 6 a.m., Tucker received a call of an individual at 
the Wayne County Hospital who stated that his care had been taken by 
force. While he was responding to the hospital, Tucker observed the 
vehicle on North Main Street
    This vehicle and driver were the same as the one identified during 
the original burglary call at Zollicoffer Estates, according to Catron.
    Sexton was taken into custody and lodged in the Wayne County 
Detention Center. The investigation is continuing and Tucker anticipates more criminal charges and arrests in the future.
