Lexington man on work release charged with burglary

A Lexington man on work release was arrested Wednesday on charges that he burglarized a home.

Police say Zackery C. Moberly, 30, broke into a home on Taylor Drive about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday while he was out of Fayette County jail on work release. Lexington Police Sgt. Ann Gutierrez said Moberly took a jar full of coins worth about $50 and some personal items.

"We let him out to go to work, and he didn't do what he was supposed to do," Fayette County jail spokesman Capt. Darin Kelly said.

Moberly has been charged with second-degree burglary in relation to the incident. He had previously been arrested on three counts of second-degree burglary and fleeing and evading police, according to jail records.
