WILLIAMSON COUNTY, KENTUCKY (NewsFirst) — On January 26, 2024, at 1201 hours Williamson County Sheriff’s Office Deputies received a report of a burglary in the 1500 block of Route 37 Marion.

The victim reported that two Bostitch nail guns and a dish sponge were stolen from the residence.

The owner, who has been remodeling the residence, told Deputies he had a suspicion that somebody has been coming into the abandoned property during the past week.

Deputies discovered the homeowner had hidden apple air tags inside some of the stolen items.

Photos of a female inside the residence were captured by a trail camera previously hidden in the residence by the owner.
