PETERSBURG, KY (FOX19) -

Authorities said an alleged campsite burglar and vandal was arrested Tuesday after he was found face down in Boone County cornfield.

According to the Boone County Sheriff's Office, a deputy was investigating the various sites broken into on Tuesday afternoon and told the owners to explore the surrounding area for their stolen items. Not only did they find stolen property in a tree line, but authorities said they also found a man passed out in a nearby cornfield.

The man, identified as 35-year-old Luthor Robinson, was reportedly wearing shorts taken from the campsite. The shorts were belted with a cable television wire cut from one of the sites.

Authorities said most of the stolen property was recovered, including two guitars, a handgun, two flat screen televisions, a portable boom box and a battery jump box.  Damage to the sites included broken windows, kicked in doors, two jet skis sunken and damaged boat controls.

Robinson was arrested and charged with first and second-degree burglary, receiving stolen property under $10,000, criminal mischief and alcohol intoxication.

Sheriff's deputies said two additional arrests are anticipated.
