    NICHOLS - A second individual has been charged in a burglary that hit a church in western Bullitt County last summer.

    Already in the Bullitt County Detention Center on other charges, Brandon Scott Street, 28, of Louisville, confessed to Det. Scotty McGaha of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department his role in the June burglary.

    In the interview, McGaha said Street told him exactly how he broke into Sunnyside Baptist Church on June 11, 2009.

    Jason C. Kays was previously indicted in the case and that is still pending in Bullitt Circuit Court. He was charged with burglary, theft by unlawful taking over $300 and being a persistent felony offender.

    Street has been charged with burglary.

    According to McGaha, Street told how the men parked down the street and pried open a window. They were in the church about 10 minutes and placed the items to be stolen near the window.

    After pulling the vehicle to the church, McGaha said Street said the two loaded up the items and took them to a place off New Cut Road.

    The case against Street will now go to a probable cause hearing and possibly to the grand jury for indictment.

    The charges are Class D felonies punishable by 1-5 years in prison. However, that could be enhanced for Kays due to his prior felony conviction.
