GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says that four people are facing burglary and theft related charges in Graves County.

Redmon says that approximately two weeks ago, his office received a report of a stolen ATV from the Sharon Church Road area.

Deputies have been investigating the theft for several days and interviewing several people to find leads on the theft.

During the investigation, officers learned that a second ATV had been stolen in the Backusburg Road area of Golo.

Both ATVs were found in a barn off of KY1710 just east of Mayfield.

Christopher Howe, 29, Brady Howe, 22, of Mayfield and Jacob Shaw, 21, of the Freemont area, were charged with 2 counts theft by unlawful taking under $10,000, 3 counts of criminal trespass, and 2 counts of tampering with physical evidence.

At 9:30 p.m. dispatch received a call from a resident at 2845 St Rt 303, just south of Mayfield, reporting that her house had been burglarized.

She said several things were missing and that a lot of damage was done inside the house.

Deputies had just left the same home earlier, after detaining Chris Howe on the ATV theft investigation.

Prior to the call of the burglary, an officer with the Mayfield Police Department conducted a traffic stop on Robert Carter, 28, of Mayfield.

During the traffic stop, officers found a purse and some medication belonging to the victim of the burglary.

MPD officers told the Sheriff’s deputies what they had discovered, and arrested Carter on a DUI and other charges.

While deputies were taking the report of the theft, the victim was naming things that had been stolen and MPD officers said they saw some of the items inside Carter's vehicle.

Carter was additionally charged with burglary, theft by unlawful taking over $500, criminal mischief, and tampering with physical evidence by the Graves County Sheriff’s Department.
