Lawrence police say they’ve broken burglary ring

LAWRENCE, Kansas (AP) – Lawrence police say they have solved at least 20 burglaries and thefts that involved so much loot the thieves had trouble finding places to store it.

Police say two men and a woman arrested last week committed the thefts in April and May, and more suspects and arrests are possible.

Sgt. Trent McKinley says the thefts involved an estimated $77,000 in stolen items, many from storage units. He says there was so much loot that police had to store some of it in rented moving trucks parked outside the police station.

McKinley says patrol officers who investigated the case believe the suspects were involved with methamphetamine.

Many of the victims had some, but not all, of their property returned to them.
