Three young adults were arrested Thursday on theft and drug charges related to vehicle break-ins on Maple Grove Court.

According to a post-arrest complaint, Nelson County Sheriff deputies and Bardstown Police responded to that area early Thursday morning when a man said he had caught people breaking into vehicles along the road. The accused are Jonothan David McClung, 18, of Shepherdsville; Jason C. Miller, 20, of Mount Washington; and Elizabeth Lynn Colvin, 18, of Cox’s Creek.

McClung told police the three had come to Bardstown to break into the vehicles for gas money, and that all three had been smoking marijuana before the thefts.

McClung had 10 marijuana roaches in a cigarette pack in his front pocket, as well as Xanax pills.

Colvin told officers she was driving and brought McClung and Miller to the area, but did not know they were going to break into vehicles. While speaking with Colvin, officers observed signs of intoxication and a small amount of marijuana, a glass pipe and a scale with residue were found inside the vehicle.

In addition to the vehicle they were accused of trying to break into when authorities were called, deputies located five other vehicles in the neighborhood that were unlocked and had been ransacked.

All three were charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition. McClung and Miller were charged with public intoxication by a controlled substance. McClung was also charged with failure to appear, having a prescription controlled substance not in a proper container, possession of drug paraphernalia, third-degree drug possession, and possession of marijuana. Colvin was charged with DUI, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, failure to maintain insurance and failure to notify change of address.

Arraignments were set for May 29.
