Theft suspect nabbed after falling through ceiling

As police in Lexington sought a second man for theft of copper from a vacant house, Charles Creech came tumbling through a ceiling. The 36-year-old Creech had hidden in the basement ceiling after police responded to a neighbor’s call about noise coming from the house.

Police spokesman Lt. Chris Van Brackel told the Lexington Herald-Leader officers captured 52-year-old David Hartsell after a foot chase Monday afternoon and were checking the home when the drywall gave way and Creech fell to the floor.

He was taken to a hospital, then charged with second-degree burglary and possession of burglary tools.

Hartsell also faces burglary charges.

The Fayette County District Court Clerk’s office said both were referred to the public defender’s office for representation. The public defender’s office says neither has been assigned a lawyer yet.
