By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY, KY - A Graves County man was arrested Wednesday on burglary and theft charges.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says his office received calls about two burglaries that occurred Tuesday night. Redmon said someone broke into Bob and Ann’s Market in Sedalia and took an estimated $6000 in tobacco products and several bags of dog food. Redmon said Skinny’s Used Cars on James Street in Mayfield was also burglarized. A 2010 Chevrolet Impala was taken along with other items.

Deputies began investigating the burglaries and the stolen vehicle was spotted in Sedalia on KY 381. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle, driven by 40-year-old Karl Alexander of Farmington.

During a search of the vehicle, Redmon said items from Bob and Ann’s Market were found, along with other items from Skinny’s Used Cars. Alexander was arrested and led police to a creek bed in Calloway County, where more stolen property was found.

When deputies searched Alexander's room at the Budget Inn in Mayfield, they found several cartons of tobacco products, along with dog food and a small amount of cash.

Alexander was lodged in the Graves County Jail and charged with two counts of 3rd degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking.
