LOUI (KCNC) — Louisville police arrested a man suspected of looting a home damaged by the Marshall Fire. Nathan Liedtke is accused of breaking into a home around 3 a.m. on March 19.
A police sergeant noticed suspicious activity near the entrance to a burned neighborhood and spotted a truck in the driveway of a damaged home. The sergeant saw a man come out of the home, run through the backyard and take off down a path.
Items that had been taken from the home were found inside the truck and on the path.
In response to the arrest, Chief of Police Dave Hayes issued the following statement:
