37-year-old Jonathan Mattingly was booked after entering an apartment on Rep. John Lewis South without permission. Chloe Witmer advised that she received an email with a picture of her garage key fob and pass with the subject line reading “Staying with ya tonight!” That image was followed by a selfie of Mattingly in the bathroom of Chloe’s apartment that she uses as a short-term rental. One of Chloe’s employees went to the apartment and found a handwritten note signed by Mattingly on the ground. She then entered the apartment and said hello, to which Mattingly replied hello back. Mattingly then came out from the bedroom area and began talking to her as if nothing was wrong. When Mattingly started digging in a bag, the employee became uncomfortable and left the apartment. She later returned with the police, but Mattingly was no longer there. The property captured in the selfie was also missing from the apartment. Police recovered a pill bottle with Mattingly’s name and an address in Bardstown, Kentucky. Officers located an article detailing the 2022 arrest of Mattingly in Pikeville, Kentucky. The booking photo in the article and the photo from Mattingly’s email were used so Chloe and the employee could identify him. Officers contacted the Pikeville Police Department and were provided with Mattingly’s Kentucky driver’s license number. Mattingly was taken into custody for theft and aggravated burglary on February 6th.
