MCCRACKEN COUNTY, MARSHALL COUNTY - A burglary investigation across McCracken and Marshall County has led to the arrest of two people.

On February 27, the McCracken County Sheriff's Office began investigating a burglary that took place at a barn on Old Hinkleville Road. Numerous items had been stolen, including trailers and four-wheelers. Detectives collected evidence, including video surveillance footage, which reportedly showed an older white Ford truck involved in the burglary.

On March 10, detectives with the Marshall County Sheriff's Office began investigating a separate burglary, which led to additional information about the burglary that took place on Old Hinkleville Road. Detectives say that while interviewing 24-year-old Kenneth Fornof of Boaz, they obtained information that Fornof and 39-year-old William Patrick Sells of McCracken County, had reportedly broken into the barn, stealing four-wheelers and a trailer. Fornof was lodged in the Graves County Jail.

Detectives interviewed additional witnesses, which reportedly corroborated that Sells and Fornof were in possession of an older white truck. Detectives were able to locate the truck at a business in Marshall County, and say some stolen tires were located on the truck. Detectives seized the truck due to the alleged stolen property.

Marshall and McCracken detectives went to a home on Lovelaceville Road in McCracken County. Sells had reportedly fled, but detectives say they were able to locate a stolen trailer at the location, and other stolen items. 

On Friday, detectives did locate Sells in a closet at the home he had fled from a few days earlier. Sells was lodged in the McCracken County Jail.

Fornof is being charged with third degree burglary, and theft by unlawful taking over $10,000. Sells is also charged with third degree burglary, and theft by unlawful taking over $10,000.
