Stolen trailer, 4-wheeler, recovered in Atchison

(KAIR)--Two men, one from Atchison, the other from Topeka, now face charges in connection with the theft of a $3,000 utility trailer, stolen Wednesday night from Atchison's 700 block of S Street.

26-year-old Anthony Akins-Bomhoff, of Atchison, and 42-year-old Jason Brown, of Topeka, were arrested at the start of Thursday, at midnight, in the 400 block of Park Street. According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, both were taken into custody for theft, with the pair allegedly inside a pickup truck pulling the trailer.

Wilson say the duo was spotted, and stopped, by an officer who saw the truck and trailer driving north on 5th Street, at Park Street.

That came after officers first responded to the scene of the theft, with a witness providing a description of the truck and trailer.

Following their arrests, Akins-Bomhoff and Brown were booked into the Atchison County Jail.

According to Wilson, the trailer is valued at $3,000.

In a separate case, a 4-wheeler, reported Wednesday as having been stolen from an Atchison address, has been recovered.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, the 2008 Suzuki 90cc has been recovered. However, details of where it was found are not immediately released, as an investigation remains ongoing.

Wilson, in the release, says the recovery, in conjunction with the ongoing investigation, led police to recover other property that Wilson says may have been stolen from other jurisdictions.

The 4-wheeler had been stolen sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon from a detached garage, located in the 900 block of Parallel Street.
