HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - Two men have been arrested after a home invasion and robbery.
Michael Haggard, 24, of Hebron, and Mark Downey, 18, of Covington, were arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with burglary, robbery and kidnapping.
Police say a home was broken into in the 6200 block of River Road in Taylorsport around noon on Tuesday. A neighbor described a dark blue car with two white males in it leaving the residence.
Deputies were investigating that incident when a resident from the 1800 block of Coachtrail Drive in Hebron called to report a home invasion robbery at around 1:20 p.m.
Two deputies left the River Road burglary and headed toward Coachtrail Drive when one of them spotted a dark blue Chevy Impala coming toward them with two occupants that matched the neighbor's description. The deputies stopped the car and found property from both break-ins.
Police say they have connected the pair to another robbery that occurred on Feb. 11. The investigation continues.
