A Corbin man was arrested Monday morning in connection with a series of residential burglaries in Knox County, the most recent of which occurred on Bramblewood Drive.

Knox County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Michael Felix, 38, on charges of second-degree burglary, second-degree fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest following an investigation into the Bramblewood burglary.

Deputy William Stewart, the department’s public affairs officer, said Sergeant Carl Firth responded to the location off of Ohler Road at approximately 10 p.m.

As part of the investigation, a description of the perpetrator was obtained and while patrolling the area, Firth located an individual matching it near a home on Timber Ridge off of Ky. 830.

Stewart stated the man attempted to run, but was taken into custody following a brief struggle.

Stewart said Felix was also charged in connection with burglaries on Grant Cemetery Road, Middle Fork of Richland Road, Deer Park Drive and Prewitt Road.

During the course of the investigation, Sergeant Firth recovered an ATV stolen from Deer Creek Drive. It was located at a residence on Ott Road in Corbin.

Deputies also served Felix with an outstanding indictment warrant out of Whitley County charging him with second-degree burglary and receiving stolen property of the value under $10,000.

Felix was lodged in the Knox County Detention Center.
