Perry J. Probus Jr., 37, was indicted on two counts of third-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking less than $500, possession of burglar’s tools, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, receiving stolen property less than $500 and second-degree persistent felony offense.
According to the indictment, Probus “knowingly and unlawfully” entered two neighboring units Dec. 17 at Vine Grove Storage off Ky. 313 “with intent to commit a crime.”
In a previous interview, Vine Grove Police Chief Kenny Mattingly said the department received a complaint Dec. 16 regarding a burglary from a unit at Vine Grove Storage. Officers exchanged information about the complaint at shift change, Mattingly said, and the incoming officer followed up on the information and performed a security check.
Upon her arrival, the officer reportedly found a white van parked in front of open units.
Probus, who was at the scene, allegedly admitted to removing items from the units, police said.
Probus is in custody and his bond is set at $10,000 cash in Hardin County.
He currently is lodged at Louisville Metro Corrections and is scheduled to appear today in Jefferson County Traffic Court for failure to register transfer of motor vehicle, no insurance and rear license not illuminated.
According to Metro Corrections, Probus also is charged with violating felony probation in Jefferson County. A hearing is set in that case for March 28.
An arraignment in Hardin Circuit Court has not been scheduled.
The Hardin County charges he faces include two Class D felonies, which are punishable by one to five years in prison if found guilty, according to Kentucky Revised Statutes.
