VIGILANTE JUSTICE: Neighbors capture burglars, call police
Thomas Trent, Dewayne Basham, and Virgil Basham may be the neighbors you want. The trio tracked down and captured two would-be burglars on Saturday, January 25. The Bashams spotted tracks in the snow on their property and decided to follow them. The tracks led to a deer stand, owned by John Tate, that had been set on fire. They continued to follow the tracks onto Thomas “Tommy Hawk” Trent’s property; Trent then joined the Bashams. The tracks led them to a trailer at 239 Young's Ferry Road. The owner of the property, Jim Faulkners, was not at the residence. Two individuals were spotted inside the trailer. They jumped out a window and started running from the scene. The duo were caught by Trent and held until police arrived.
Billy Durbin( 4/25/83) of 1280 EG Nash Road,Roundhill, Kentucky and Joseph C. Coin (8/5/84) of 1179 Hunts Church Road, Roundhill, Kentucky, were taken into custody by Butler County Sheriff’s Deputy Heath West. The two are lodged in the Butler County Jail on a charge of second degree burglary.
Also responding to the scene were Butler County Sheriff's Deputies Trey Flener, Chris Reneer, and KSP Trooper Brian McKinney.
