Knox County Deputies were called out to investigate a reported theft at a vacant lot in Barbourville. Witnesses told officers they saw 34-year-old Harvey Cain pull up a metal gate pole and haul it away. The investigation eventually led deputies to Graceway Metals on Noeville Hollow Road and caught Cain in the process of selling the metal post for scrap. Cain was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking and criminal mischief. He was lodged in the Knox County Detention Center.
