As a result of an ongoing investigation into vehicle burglaries in the Manhattan area, Riley County police said they have arrested two people believed to be responsible for victimizing more than 30 community members since at least last month.
According to police Dustin Thomure, 21, Manhattan, of 2500 Farm Bureau road #363, and a 16-year old juvenile male of Manhattan were arrested on suspicion of the offenses of burglary. Thomure was also arrested for suspicion of contributing to a child’s misconduct. His bond was set at $23,000. The juvenile was transported to the North Central Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Facility in Junction City.
A search warrant was executed at Thomure’s residence as a result of the investigation. Police said it ultimately led officers and detectives to the recovery of many items that are suspected to be stolen. The RCPD will soon be contacting potential victims, if possible, in an attempt to return those items.
