Nicholasville police have arrested three men they believe were involved in a string of recent burglaries.
Police have arrested Brian Beckley, 23; Jonathan “Kaine” Frazier, 18; and Jordan Nevels, 23, on Wednesday afternoon, June 27.
Beckley has been charged with an attempted burglary on Beacon Hill Drive; two counts of first-degree burglary, one in the Keene Crossing subdivision and the other on Hickory Hill Drive; and second-degree burglary in the Autumn Hills subdivision.
Nevels was charged with first-degree burglary in the Keene Crossing subdivision, while Frazier was charged with second-degree bulgary in the Autumn Hills subdivision.
According to an NPD news release, police were searching for Beckley on Tuesday to serve a warrant in relation to a residential burglary on Beacon Hill Drive. While officers were looking for him, they received a call from a neighbor who saw someone taking items out of her neighbor’s garage and driving away.
“She gave a good description, and officers located the vehicle driving just a short distance away,” Sgt. Scott Harvey said.
Nevels was driving the vehicle, while Beckley was in the passenger’s seat.
Other officers checked the residence in Keene Crossing and discovered that the back door had been forced open.
Stolen items, including a gun, from the house were located in the vehicle with the two.
Frazier was arrested a little later in the day.
Police say the investigation is ongoing, and detectives are reviewing evidence to possibly link the trio to other burglaries in the city and county.
The men are lodged in the Jessamine County Detention Center.
