One Arrested on Burglary Charge in Ludlow

One man faces a burglary charge after an arrest in Ludlow late Wednesday night.

Ludlow Police received a call of a home invasion, prompting a large and quick response from officers.

There was apparently some confusion related to the case. Ludlow Police posted to Facebook that there was no active shooter and no homicide involved in the case.

The department later took to Facebook again to explain the Code Red phone calls that were dispatched to nearby residents.

Police used the system, via Kenton County Emergency Dispatch, to alert residents that K9s were out.

We have a much better success when tracking a suspect if bystanders are far from the dog(s)," the department posted. "Also, it’s just not safe to have onlookers. We asked dispatch to notify residents with in a mile radius... probably a little too much in hind sight."

Kameron Turney, 23, was arrested and charged with first degree burglary. He was arraigned in Kenton District Court on Thursday morning and is scheduled to return there on Thursday, Jan. 24 for a preliminary hearing.

He is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center on $25,000 bond.

Police Chief Scott Smith told The River City News that there was no further information to be released currently, but noted that Ludlow officers were not involved in causing the injuries that are visible in Turney's mugshot.
