Graves County sheriff's deputies arrested a burglary suspect following a traffic stop and foot pursuit on Ky. 129 near Dukedom Monday.

Approximately 5:15 p.m. deputies observed McManus' vehicle and the white vehicle pull out Finley at the same time. Deputies stopped both. During questioning of the drivers and search of the vehicles, Trent was found in the trunk of his mother's car and arrested without incident.
