A window in the front of Pope Lumber Company was shattered when would-be-robbers threw a rock through it. The impact immediately set off the security system, signaling police to respond.

A series of attempted break-ins occurred early Friday morning to various businesses throughout Barbourville. Pope Lumber and Bowling Family Pharmacy were among the victims. The incidents were all reported around 3-4 a.m.


“On the security camera footage we saw someone throw a brick at our front door from a vehicle,” said Kristen Bowling, Co-owner of Bowling Family Pharmacy, “they didn’t even get out of the car.”
