A toe ring has helped finger a local couple on burglary charges.
The couple, Joshua Bouldin and Brittany Holder, were indicted on charges of aggravated burglary and felony theft last week by the Warren County grand jury. They will arraigned later this month before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley.
Their charges come for a residential break-in of a house off Sparta Highway earlier this summer. The victim in the case said about $4,000 worth of his property was stolen. The items taken included a laptop computer, scanner, jewelry and GPS.
An investigation of the burglary brought sheriff’s investigators to the couple, at which time Bouldin reportedly confessed to the burglary but maintained Holder did not go inside the residence. Instead, investigators believe Holder stayed outside in the get-away vehicle while Holder was stealing the items.
“They used her car for the burglary,” said sheriff’s investigator Kevin Murphy. “And, when she was investigated, she was found wearing one of the toe rings that was stolen from the residence.”
