After two weeks on the run from the law, 21-year-old Patrick Kenny is behind bars. Effingham County sheriff's deputies arrested him. He faces several charges including burglary and criminal damage to property.
Sheriff Jimmie McDuffie says the Guyton man got into a fight in the Goshen Hill subdivision with several other men on May 23. When deputies arrived, Kenny ran off, breaking into a home and stealing two trucks.
He crashed both of them, one into a truck and another into a train.
Kenny is in the Effingham County jail tonight. His crime spree resulted in $40,000 in damage.
