Officers Surround Apartment Complex and Arrest Auto Burglar

Quick work by both midnight and day crew police officers lead to the arrest of a 23 year old man for breaking into two cars and attempting to burglarize another vehicle in an apartment complex. The investigation began about 6:20 a.m. on Tuesday June 22 in the 10400 block of West 117th Terrace. A witness called police to say she heard glass break and looked out her apartment window. She saw a man standing next the car with the broken glass. She was able to provide a good description of the suspect. The responding officer set up a perimeter and located a man lurking behind one of the apartment buildings. Further investigation and evidence located at the crime scene allowed the officers to arrest a 23 year old man for auto burglary. A willing witness and quick response by officers lead to the capture of this criminal who was taken to the Johnson County Adult Detention Center to await formal charging.
