Police in Mercer County were able to stop a burglary while it was happening.
The Danville Advocate Messenger reports James Elam was arrested at a home on Cottonwood Drive in Harrodsburg.
Police say Elam was wearing gloves and had tools that could be used to force his way into the home. Because police got there while the crime was allegedly taking place, nothing was stolen.
Elam was charged with burglary and taken to the Boyle County Detention Center.
