Thousands lost in Atchison burglary

(KAIR)--An investigation is launched into a midweek burglary at an Atchison residence; and while an arrest is not yet made, Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News leads are developing. “We do have some ideas of what occurred,” Wilson said. “This was a daytime burglary in a residential area. That’s unusual. There was some evidence left behind, there’s some leads that we’re following. The victim helped us in directions that may lead us to a suspect. I think we will resolve this very soon.”

The burglary happened sometime Wednesday afternoon. “Forced entry was made through a rear door at a residence in the 1000 block of North 5th,” Wilson said. “The 45-year-old resident reported the theft of a Ruger .44 caliber handgun, silver coins, liquor, and jewelry, which included wedding rings, earrings, and necklaces.”

Wilson said the total loss is estimated at $4,000.
