Man accused of burglaries in Graves Co.

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A Benton man was arrested on Wednesday, Oct. 21 in connection with two burglaries and an attempted burglary in Graves County, Kentucky.

Kyle Courtney, 24, was charged with second degree criminal attempt to commit burglary, and two counts of second degree burglary.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, Courtney was arrested on Wednesday after he was caught on video surveillance on Tuesday allegedly trying to burglarize a home in the Boaz area.

Deputies say a warrant was issued on Wednesday morning and Courtney was arrested by Paducah police that afternoon. He was then transferred back to the Graves County Jail.

When he arrived at the jail, he was additionally charged with the two counts of second degree burglary. Deputies say those charges stem from Courtney allegedly burglarizing the same house in September that he allegedly tried to burglarize a third time on Tuesday.

According to deputies, Courtney was self-employed as a lawn care worker. They say he had been mowing the grass of the home that was involved in the case.

Courtney has a prior conviction for theft and burglary in Marshall County.
