Sheriff: Boys tried to steal from gym, end up working out instead

PINEVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A pair of would-be thieves gave up midway through robbing a gym, and decided to work on their physique instead, according to the Bell Co. Sheriff.

The Sheriff says the arrest of 19-year-old William Brock Hunter stems from a case investigated by a former Pineville police officer who transferred into the Sheriff’s Department.

According to the deputy, Hunter and another juvenile broke into Odie’s Fitness Center on Virginia Avenue, in an attempt to break into the main office.  While inside, the deputy says the pair attempted to alter a camera facing towards the office with a metal ceiling frame, but instead caused the camera to be aimed directly at them.

The boys were unable to gain access to the office, and then decided to work out in the gym they had just tried to steal from.

Hunter was arrested just before noon on Wednesday and taken to the Bell Co. Detention Center.

He has been charged with criminal mischief and theft of services.
