A Mt. Washington man is behind bars following three local burglaries. He is accused of stealing weapons and 4-wheelers.
James David Riggs Jr., 24, of Mt. Washington, was arrested in Marion County Friday evening in connection with two Washington County cases, according to Washington County Sheriff Tommy Bartley. Riggs allegedly stole five guns and an X-Box video game system from the residence of Justice Hutchins of 1186 Newton Road on June 21. All of the guns were rifles, and one of them, a .308, has been recovered, along with the X-Box, from a Bardstown pawn shop, Bartley said.
