By West Kentucky Star Staff

An arrest has been made in a Carlisle County burglary case.

On Thursday morning, Carlisle County Sheriff William Gilbert interviewed Jewell Wiley and Jordan Jones, who were named as persons of interest in Monday's burglary at the City of Bardwell's storage facility. Sheriff Gilbert interviewed both men. 

Jones admitted to entering the building and stealing the items. Two of the stolen items that were recovered had been destroyed. A Milwaukee M18 Force Logic Utility Crimper valued at $1780.00 had been burned in a fire, and a Paslode 16 GA Stapler Kit valued at $424.00, had been thrown into a creek behind the residence. Jones stated he had no knowledge of how those items had been damaged.

Jones was arrested for third degree burglary and tampering with physical evidence. In addition to those charges he was also wanted out of Ballard County for a warrant charging him with flagrant non-support.

Jones was lodged in the Ballard County Jail on a $5000 bond for the Carlisle County charges, and a $1500 bond on the Ballard County warrant.

Wiley denied any knowledge or involvement in the burglary. He has not been charged at this time. 


A burglary in downtown Bardwell on Monday is under investigation. 

Carlisle County deputies said someone forced entry into a building on Front Street owned and operated by the City of Bardwell. Items taken included chain saws, nail guns, lineman’s tools, equipment, and electrical wiring. Value of the items was estimated at over $2200. 

The investigation led the Sheriff’s Department to a recycling center in McCracken County. Information obtained at the recycling center resulted in a search warrant executed on Wednesday at a residence on Front Street in Bardwell. 

Several items related to the burglary were located in the residence, including a nail gun. Evidence also indicated that stolen electrical wire had previously been at the residence. 

Along with items related to the burglary, several items of drug paraphernalia, marijuana, and suspected methamphetamine paraphernalia were also located. 

During the search, two men and two children were at the residence. The children were removed to a nearby family member’s home. The men located at the residence are not believed to be involved in the crime at this time.

The owner of the residence, 57-year-old Jewell “Outlaw” Wiley, and another resident, 30-year-old Jordan Jones, are described by deputies as persons of interest in the investigation.
