An arrest was made by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department in connection with a Sunday burglary and subsequent pursuit.

Timothy F. Davis, 29, of Science Hill, was arrested on a Pulaski District Court warrant by Deputy James Layne and charged with third-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking of over $300. He was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.

Davis is considered a suspect in an incident which occurred at almost 3 a.m. last Sunday. The Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a burglary in progress at 500 Roberts Bend Road, Lake Cumberland Resort. A description of the suspect was given to the responding deputies by the 911 dispatch center.

Layne, along with Deputy Steve Molen and Sgt. Jon Williams, encountered the suspect on Keno Road while responding to the call. The suspect fled on foot into the woods as law enforcement approached.

The canine unit was activated to respond to the scene. Deputy Craig Whitaker led his dog, Nero, to track the scent trail of the suspect, who was followed through the heavily wooded area south of Keno Road for approximately a mile. The suspect eluded capture, but over $1,300 stolen from lake Cumberland Resort was located by the deputies and canine unit.

The warrant for Davis’ arrest was obtained quickly and the arrest was made shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday as Davis crossed U.S. 27 near Burnside.
