Authorities say footage from a wildlife camera helped nab two men accused of stealing more than $2,600 of items from a Pike County couple who were serving in the military overseas. Michael Luckett of Mexico and Ricky Luckett of Mount Sterling, Ill., are charged with felony second-degree burglary. Ricky Luckett faces four additional theft charges in the case. Preliminary hearings are scheduled for Jan. 23 in Bowling Green. Authorities have not said how the men are related. Two other suspects are still being sought and the investigation continues. The motion-activated camera normally is used to capture footage of wildlife. The couple asked that it be installed after being told a door was dislodged at a rural home they own west of Louisiana. Both were serving with the Navy in the Middle East at the time. According to a probable cause statement, the camera captured images of the four suspects entering the home and taking items four times between Jan. 25 and April 10 of this year. Items stolen included a pool table, tool boxes, a dishwasher, a stove and John Deere toys. People with information about the case can contact the Pike County Sheriff’s Department at 573-324-3335.
