Second man wanted in Corbin burglary

Gray man arrested, jailed Monday

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Kentucky State Police troopers continue their search today for a second man wanted in connection with a burglary on Cumberland Falls Highway.

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

Loudermilk saw two men fleeing from a brick home on the south side of Cumberland Falls 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 — the second suspect apparently saw Loudermilk and fled the scene in the opposite direction.

The trooper “caught up with” the suspect carrying the pillowcase, 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.

Arrested was Justin R. Cornett, 24, of Gray, who now faces charges of first-degree burglary, resisting arrest and his first offense of prescription drugs not in their proper container. He remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. No bond has yet been set.

Cochran said after a search of the area by canine, the second suspect was not located.

If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of the second suspect, contact the KSP Post 11 at 606-878-6622.
