Three young adults have been arrested this morning by the Washington County Sheriff’s Department after information left at the scene of a break in led police to their door.

Arrested were Ashley N. Miller, 26; Stephen A. Morgan, 21 and Jeffrey A Petty II, age 24.


Interviews early on Dec. 10 led to the arrest of these three and the confiscation of a large amount of stolen cash, jewelry and marijuana.

Charges are pending.

On December 9, at 8:40a Campbellsburg Town Marshal David Nicholson was contacted by John Dixon, a salesman at Mid-Way Auto in Campbellsburg about a break in at the business, located at 187 West State Road 60.

Upon arrival, Nicholson noticed a door on the west side of the building had been broken into.

Reported missing were a Liberty safe with an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry.

According to Sheriff Claude Combs, articles found at the scene led police to a residence on Possum Hollow Road.

A person of interest was transported to the jail for questioning, which led to the following two individuals being interviewed early this morning.

At this time the investigation is ongoing and police are awaiting the interview of another person of interest. Brad Naugle and the City of Salem Police Department also helped in this case.
