LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 23, 2003) -- University of Kentucky Police arrested a Lexington man and woman Monday, Dec. 22, in connection with several campus thefts. Alfred R. Strunk was charged with six felony counts of theft by unlawful taking and Annette McDowell, aka Annette Strunk, was charged with two felony counts of receiving stolen property. Neither are UK employees.

Travis Manley, public information officer for the UK Police Department, said the pair were charged in connection with the theft of two UK Physical Plant Division vehicles and the theft of tools from several other UK vehicles. All the stolen items were recovered.

“The incidents that led to these arrests are part of the reason UK Police established a special task force earlier this month to deal with vehicle break-ins during the holiday season,” Manley said.

In addition to the University of Kentucky cases, Manley said Lexington Police also are clearing numerous theft and burglary cases based on information provided by Strunk and McDowell.

Both subjects are currently lodged in the Fayette County Detention Center.
