A domestic complaint in Knox County led to more than $10,000 worth of goods that allegedly had been stolen from a coal mine, state police said Monday.
Knox County sheriff's deputies found 450 feet of copper mining cable and some other equipment while checking on the domestic complaint, according to a news release.
The items were stolen from the Alden Resource Mine No. 3, police said. Kenneth Williams, 31, of Flat Lick, a former employee of the mine, was charged Friday with theft and criminal mischief. A 15-year-old juvenile also was arrested.
Police made a third arrest in the case Sunday, charging Kevin Carnes, 32, of Flat Lick with theft and criminal mischief.
