Caught-on-Camera Burglary Hearings Tuesday
(BOWLING GREEN)-- Pre-trial hearings are Tuesday for two men who allegedly were caught on tape stealing items from a Pike County couple who were serving in the military overseas. Michael Luckett of Mexico Missouri and Ricky Luckett of Mount Sterling, Illinois are each charged with felony burglary.
Authorities say a motion-activated camera normally used to capture footage of wildlife recorded the suspects and two other people stealing items from the couple’s rural Louisiana home between January 25 and April 10 of last year.
The couple asked that the camera be installed after being told a door was dislodged at the home. Both were serving with the Navy in the Middle East at the time. Items stolen included a pool table, tool boxes, a dishwasher, a stove and John Deere toys.
Both suspects are scheduled for trials in July.
