Following the April 19, 2016 request from KSP for public assistance, information was received which furthered their ongoing investigation. KSP Detectives discovered one of the suspects, Jason Wynn, had also been involved in three other burglaries from the same area. KSP presented information to a Lyon County Grand Jury which resulted in the issuance of indictments on May 1 for all four burglaries.
Travis D. Hale, 25, of Princeton, has been charged with second degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking over $10,000. At the time of his arrest, he was already incarcerated in Hopkins County Jail.

At the time of his arrest, Wynn was already incarcerated at Roederer Correctional Facility (Kentucky Department of Corrections) in Oldham County.
According to corrections, Wynn has charges dating back to a 2006 arrest in Lyon County, also for third degree burglary. His five year sentence was deferred for three years. In 2010, Wynn was convicted of four counts of complicity to commit burglary in Caldwell County and one count of engaging in a criminal syndicate.
He is currently incarcerated after convictions for burlgary, evading arrest and assault.
KSP was assisted during the investigation by Lyon County Sheriff Department, Eddyville Police Department, and Princeton Police Department.
