Lowe’s employees lead off second day of testimony in Houck theft trial

 BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A jury spent a full day Wednesday listening to current and former Lowe’s employees testify about giving developer and builder Brooks Houck more shingles than he had paid for last year, but not once did a witness directly say Houck had intentionally misled them.

Over the course of two weeks, spread over four separate occasions, Houck paid for 250 bundles of shingles, but took home 484.
