The burglary was captured on the video surveillance system of the home and the homeowner recognized Gardner, who is a neighbor.

When Louisville Metro Police watched the video they also recognized Gardner from previous dealings with him.

Police said a Gardner’s girlfriend contacted the homeowner and admitted that he committed the burglary. She also paid to get the gun taken in the burglary back from the person Gardner sold it to.

Gardner was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections late July 2 being returned from Denver.
