Last Friday, a victim of a break in was able to identify the perpetrator as his brother-in-law through video surveillance on the property.
According to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department warrant, Det. Robbie Goins investigated a break in at a LaFollette residence on Oct. 29.
The victim reported he had been out of town and returned home to find his detached garage had been broken into, said Goins.
The victim had video surveillance of his property, which he reviewed with police, the incident report indicates.
Goins said the victim was able to identify one of the suspects, saying one of the alleged burglars was his brother-in-law.
The brother-in-law, Kelly Lambert, 38, of 205 Wills Lane in LaFollette, had a warrant issued for his arrest following the identification.
“(The victim) stated that he spoke to his brother-in-law and he admitted to him that he and the co-defendant did burglarize the garage,” said Goins.
Lambert was charged with burglary and issued a $2,500 bond. He was released the same day as he turned himself in.
