A Pike County man who police say tried to sell stolen goods to a Lexington business is due in court Monday.
Police say Seth Scott, 30, tried to sell several items that were stolen from "The Castle" in Pikeville to the chain's Lexington store on Richmond Road on Friday. According to court documents, Scott tried to sell the store back its own stolen items worth nearly $19,000.

Scott's charged with receiving stolen property and drug trafficking, among other charges. He is due in court later Monday.
