Man wanted for second-degree burglary

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Deputies continue their search for a man wanted in connection with an attempted theft and break-in, according to Sheriff Colan Harrell.

Nicholas Joshua Campbell, 27, now has an arrest warrant out charging him with second-degree burglary.

Harrell explained that on Wednesday, two Rockholds men caught a suspect breaking into one of their vehicles.

“They started chasing the individual,” Harrell said.

Those two men, Kalvin Sutton and Joseph Jara, continued pursuing the suspect.

Harrell said the suspect ran from his pursuers about a half-mile down the road.

That’s when the suspect, later identified as Campbell, entered the home of a Rockholds grandmother.

That grandmother, Tina Nichols, contacted 911 dispatchers to report a man had entered her home and that she had her grandchild in the home with her.

According to Harrell, the suspect told Nichols he was being chased by people armed with guns.

Nichols then saw a second man outside her home, asking to enter her house — he was after the man already inside.

The second man told Nichols he actually was not armed.

Deputies learned from Nichols that the man who entered her home was bleeding from a head wound — that’s when Nichols armed herself with a shotgun and asked him to leave her residence.

“She said when she pulled the shotgun out, it appeared the suspect would rather face the shotgun than the man outside,” Harrell said.

If anyone has any information about the whereabouts of Campbell, contact the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department at (606) 549-6006.
