Reward offered in burglary case in Owensboro


PHILPOT, Ky (WEHT) Owensboro Police are investigating a burglary at a home in the 4300 block of HWY-142 that happened at the end of April. Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly stole several thousand dollars and coins and jewelry.

Detectives say according to the victim, one of the suspects knocked on her door claiming that her roof needed repairs and while they were outside a second suspect entered the home and stole multiple items. The money that was taken in this burglary is mostly older $100 bills from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

The suspect is described as a white male, average height, average build, with rotten and missing teeth, and claimed to be a roofer.
