MT. VERNON – Mt. Vernon Police arrested three people late Sunday night in connection with a burglary at the Mitchell Museum.
According to Mt. Vernon Police, around 9:30 Sunday night, dispatch received a report of a burglary in progress to a residence on the grounds of the Mitchell Museum. An employee of the Museum saw three subjects breaking in via a video surveillance system.
Police and a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department K9 Unit responded to the scene. Officers initially located 20-year-old Damian Bunner in the area of the home and detained him.
The Jefferson County K9 Team, with backup from Mt. Vernon Police, began a search of the home. During a search of the home, two more subjects were taken into custody. One was identified as 18-year-old Alexander Kuhn and the other was a 15-year-old juvenile.
All three arrestees were residents, or had been, of the Spero Group Home on Richview Road. All three subjects were charged with burglary.
Kuhn was additionally charged with obstructing identification for allegedly providing false information about his identity to officers.
Bunner and Kuhn were taken to the Jefferson County Jail to await the formal filing of charges and the setting of bail. The juvenile was released to Spero staff as they did not have enough points to justify incarceration in a juvenile detention facility.
