Arrests made in Taco Bell break-in

August 17, 2006

An investigation into the break-in Aug. 4 at the Baldwin City Taco Bell has resulted in the arrest of three people and has tied it to another break-in at Sonic July 31.

"We've had an active investigation going on this case since it occurred," Baldwin Police Chief Mike McKenna said of the Taco Bell break-in. "It led us to some individuals that played a part in it.

Arrested Tuesday were a 19-year-old Baldwin man, a 20-year-old man with no address and a 19-year-old woman with no address, said McKenna, adding that the 20-year-old man and 19-year-old woman are not connecting because of the missing addresses.

"Work on this case led us to the recent break-in at Sonic that occurred July 31," he said. "(Tuesday) evening, officers went to a pond outside the city limits of Baldwin and recovered what's believed to be the cash drawer from the Sonic burglary."

McKenna said the three were in Douglas County Jail and would be arraigned later. Until then, he would not release their names or any other information.

"For the time being, we don't have any more information to report on this," he said. "We're still working on the other aspects of this case."
