LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Three people have been arrested in connection with the burglary of a convenience store in Laurel County.

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says Lakeside Market on Flatwoods Road was burglarized early Thursday morning.

After sharing images taken from surveillance video with the media and on Facebook, deputies received numerous tips.

Those tips lead them to pull over a Ford Bronco with Ohio tags.

Inside, police say, officials found change and cigarettes believed to have been taken from the store.

Police arrested Steven Simmons, Dominick Colombini and Patricia Sharp and charged them with receiving stolen property.

Sharp also faces drug charges.
