Thursday, January 31, 2013

Authorities have detained two juveniles in connection to a recent string of burglaries in Kennett.

According to information provided by the Kennett Police Department, on Jan. 28, the department received information from a source in reference to the burglary that occurred on Jan. 22, in the 200 block of South Main Street in Kennett.

The information resulted in the recovery of a stolen laptop and stolen iPad.

On Jan. 29, investigators, with the help of the Dunklin County Juvenile Office, questioned several Kennett juveniles about the burglary.

This investigation led juvenile authorities to detain two juveniles suspected of committing the crime on Main Street, along with two other previously reported burglaries.

Information obtained during the questioning also led officers to recover a second stolen laptop at a residence on Wayne Street.

The investigation is considered ongoing and the departments asks that anyone with information regards to the recent thefts contact the Kennett Police Department at (573) 888-4622.

Kennett Police Chief Jim Paine would like to thank the Kennett Public Schools and the Dunklin County Juvenile Office for their help in this investigation.
