Kentucky State Police say troopers were called out on an alarm going off at the Fitzpatrick’s Furniture store on HWY 25 near Corbin. A Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer heard the alarm and went to check it out. He discovered a box truck had been driven through the side of the store in an apparent burglary attempt. The box truck was owned by the furniture store. After watching video surveillance, a female suspect was identified 44-year-old Penny J. Barnes of Corbin. Later officers of the London Police Department found Barnes and arrested her on an unrelated complaint. She was charged with burglary and theft by unlawful taking. Barnes was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
