The Laurel County Sheriff's Office says someone tried to steal from a tornado victim.

Deputies were called Monday afternoon to a home on Radford Road, which is 8 miles north of London.

They found and arrested Calvin Johnson and Melinda Johnson.

Police say they found several items in their truck, including a floor jack, hedge trimmers, and a bible.

Police say the homeowner was a tornado victim who was staying somewhere else.

The Sheriff's Office says that Melinda Johnson told them she thought it was okay to take items from the home, since it had been damaged in the tornado.
