Second suspect arrested for Corbin burglary

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Kentucky State Police troopers found the second man they believe helped a suspect attempt to burglarize a south Corbin home Monday.

Michael L. Loudermilk, 26, of London, was arrested Tuesday by Kentucky State Police Trooper Ryan Loudermilk (no relation).

He remains jailed at the Whitley County Detention Center. According to JailTracker, he is listed as having a warrant from another county for flagrant non-support, and for that charge he has a $2,600 cash bond.

No bond has yet been set for him — he faces charges of first-degree burglary.

According to KSP Post 11 Public Affairs Officer Lloyd Cochran, just before 3 p.m. Monday, Trooper Loudermilk was patrolling along Cumberland Falls Highway two miles south of Corbin just before KY 727.

The trooper saw two men fleeing from a brick home on the south side of the highway, one of whom was carrying a pillowcase.

Cochran said the trooper then saw an older man, later discovered to be the homeowner, chasing the two suspects.

Loudermilk chased the pillowcase-carrying suspect on foot — and inside discovered electronics and jewelry, which the homeowner claimed as his, as well as two handguns and a long gun dropped on the ground during the foot pursuit.

That suspect was Justin R. Cornett, 24, of Gray, who faces charges of first-degree burglary, resisting arrest and his first offense of prescription drugs not in their proper container. He also remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. No bond has yet been set according to JailTracker, however, court records indicate he was arraigned Tuesday in Whitley County.

Cochran said Cornett allegedly gave officers a false name — which added that charge against Cornett. JailTracker also states he also faces a parole violation charge — for a felony offense.
