(WICHITA, Kan.) — Wichita police credit the public’s help in several recent burglaries. Police Lt. Doug Nolte says an alert neighbor saw a man who looked out of place in the 500 block of S. Christine early Wednesday.
That neighbor called 911, and when officers arrived at the scene, they found the man walking out of a house with property, which he was loading into a car.
Believing the items to be stolen, officers stopped the car and conducted a search which turned up property from several homes in the area.
Officers were able to locate the victims and return their property. The suspect, a 23-year-old man, was booked into jail on four counts of burglary.
