A burglary at Apple Patch Community in Brownsboro led to a four-mile search of the area for a suspect by officers and OCPD’s canine unit.

Officers headed to the scene about 2 a.m. July 16 to the scene of a burglary in progress after Oldham County Police received information from La Grange Police.

At the scene, officers detained a male suspect later identified as Michael K. Rogers, 19, of the 200 block of South Cedar Street, La Grange.

Police spotted a second suspect fleeing the scene. A 90-minute search by OCPD’s canine unit led police to a wooded area where they found Justin D. Feagans, 19, with a last known address in the 200 block of Russell Avenue, La Grange.

An investigation at the scene determined forced entry was made to one of the buildings, stolen property and burglary tools were located in the vehicle the suspects were operating.

Apple Patch Community is located at 9601 Ky. 329 in Brownsboro, and serves adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Rogers and Feagans face burglary charges, including possession of burglary tools, and are charged with receiving stolen property.

Feagans also faces a fleeing or evading police charge.

Both suspects are housed in the Oldham County Jail.
