    Jim Hatfield is a 70-year-old, lifelong member of the Davidson Memorial United Methodist Church. He was baptized there, married there, held his wife’s funeral there and, when the time comes, will have his own funeral there.

    Larry Hatfield, Bullitt County’s solid waste coordinator, said one of the hidden surveillance cameras caught two individuals in the act.

    They will be in Bullitt District Court on March 13 to face charges.
