Versailles couple have landed in a lot of hot water after police
say they burglarized an apartment in Dearborn County and admitted
to attacking and robbing a woman as she put her groceries into
her cart at the Kroger store, also in Dearborn County.
Matthew Mark Erne Jr., 25, and Sarah Joe Klue, 26, are both
sitting in the Dearborn County Jail and have been charged with
Burglary and Theft for the Greendale break-in. They are both
charged with Theft in connection with the Kroger incident with
Klue being charged with Battery for attacking the victim.
Police say the two only got $5.00 from the purse they stole
from the Kroger incident and used it to buy gas. They discarded
the purse along a highway in Hebron, Kentucky. Erne and Klue
said they stole the purse because of their drug problems.
The couple could face additional charges for criminal activity
in Dearborn and Ripley counties.
