Three arrested in relation to thefts at non-profit children’s camp

A Perryville man and two juveniles have been arrested and charged with burglary and theft by unlawful taking for their involvement in a string of crimes at Camp Horsin’ Around, just outside of Perryville.

Steven G. Maxwell, 39, was arrested at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, according to Chief Deputy Chris Stratton. He was charged with four counts of third-degree burglary, four counts of second-degree burglary, one count of endangering the welfare of a minor, three counts of criminal mischief and one count of theft by unlawful taking, over $500.

He is being held in the Boyle County Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.

Stratton wouldn’t comment on the relationship between Maxwell and the juveniles, on whom charges are pending.

Maxwell, who lives close to the camp, didn’t say why he chose to target Camp Horsin’ Around, but did give a full confession to deputies.

Some of the stolen items were recovered, according to the sheriff’s office.
