PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) The fourth suspect in a 2014 home invasion that led to the death of a Pittsburg State University student has been taken into custody in Mexico.
The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports 20-year-old Bryan Levi Bridges was arrested in Juarez, Mexico, on Sunday night. He was wanted in Kansas on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated burglary and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery in the October 2014 home invasion that left 20-year-old Taylor Thomas dead.
Crawford County Attorney Michael Gayoso says he hopes to have Bridges back in the county early next week for a first court appearance.
Prosecutors say Bridges was in the home with three other men as the group attempted to steal marijuana from Thomas’ roommate when Thomas was shot.
