Boone County Sheriff Danny Hickman announced his department has made an arrest in connection with a string of residential burglaries in Boone County.
Sgt. Richard Pemberton responded to a burglary in progress on Highway 14 in Omaha and during the investigation he identified Tanner Crook, 19, of Batavia as a suspect. Crook was taken into custody on unrelated charges by Pemberton at that time.
Using information gathered during an interview with Crook and using evidence gathered from a number of burglaries, investigators were able to determine Crook was responsible for three recent burglaries. Sheriff Hickman said Crook has been charged with Residential Burglary, Theft of Property and Criminal Mischief 2nd Degree and was being held on $50,000 bond at the Boone County Jail.
