    A ring from an unfamiliar cellphone found in a closet of a burgled home allowed law enforcement officers to narrow the list of suspects in the crime to one.
    Detective Rick Barrett of the Scott County Sheriff's Department related in a probable cause affidavit filed in the case against Heather Thompson, 23, Lexington, that the victim of the burglary on September 17 discovered the strange cell phone in her closet.
    The woman said she had returned to her home on that date and noticed that a window screen had been cut and blinds in a rear bedroom's window were ajar. When she entered the home, she heard the cell phone ringing. She located it and answered to hear a man's voice. Then, she told the detective, Thompson got on the phone and identified the phone as hers. Thompson, the victim stated, told her that she “...must have left it there this morning.”
    Thompson, advised the homeowner, had come to the home that morning, but she did not come in. Thompson was described as a neighbor.
    When Det. Barrett arrived, Thompson was at the house with the owner. She provided information about why she had come to the woman's house. Thompson said a couple who had assisted her with her car in the woman's driveway that morning tried to sell her a gun a short time later.
