HILLVIEW - A Bullitt County woman is in custody following a robbery at her terminally-ill neighbor's apartment.

Charlotte D. Clark, 18, was arrested by Bullitt County sheriffs Friday afternoon. She has been charged with theft of unlawful taking over $300 and theft of a controlled substance. Clark may face other additional charges.

According to Det. Scotty McGaha, Clark distracted her neighbor at the Brooks Run Apartments while her uncle, James Ronald Clark, 44, of Louisville, broke into the neighbor's apartment.

McGaha said about $15,000 worth of merchandise and drugs were taken from the apartment, including the neighbor's medication. McGaha said the drugs and other items may have been traded for drug money.

A warrant has been issued for James Ronald Clark. McGaha said he was also wanted in Warren County on separate charges and was facing pending charges in Louisville.

Anyone with information on the robbery should call the Bullitt County Sheriffs Office at 543-2514.
