A Cynthiana man was taken into custody Monday just four minutes after he allegedly took a pistol from the Cynthiana Jewelry and Pawn Shop on Church Street.
Cpl. Walter Tapp said Jonathan Wayne Moore, 37, walked into the business and was looking around. He was witnessed taking a .38 pistol and when confronted, he tossed the gun, Tapp said.
The gun was recovered on Donald Northcutt’s property, also on Church Street.
Sgts. Eric Kendall and Wilbur Gross spotted the suspect on Bridge Street at Walnut, near the BP station.
