TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Police in Topeka believe they’ve solved a rash of storage unit burglaries in which more than $250,000 worth of property was stolen.
Police announced the arrests Tuesday of two men and two women suspected of breaking into dozens of storage units beginning last October. One of the suspects is charged with 84 counts of burglary and 77 counts of theft.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that detectives executed a search warrant Jan. 4 at a home where they found two stolen vehicles including a 1968 Chevy Chevelle and two 26-foot trailers’ worth of stolen goods. Other search warrants were executed since then.
Police say that so far, they’ve matched more than $100,000 worth of stolen items with the owners. Detectives continue working with victims to identify more items.
