Lawrence Police responded to two separate burglary incidents in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street late Friday night and early Saturday morning, resulting in the arrests of five people.

Sgt. Craig Shanks said police were dispatched to the first incident — in which four people were arrested — around 11:50 p.m. A victim called police after hearing someone inside their apartment. Three of the suspects were arrested near the apartment, while another suspect was arrested after falling through an attic and landing in another apartment in the same complex.

All four suspects — two 20-year-old females, a 20-year-old male, and a 21-year-old male — were booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery. The four were listed as Lawrence residents.

Police responded to the second incident around 3:15 a.m., after residents of an apartment in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street arrived home to find someone leaving their apartment with property, Shanks said. A 21-year-old Topeka man was arrested shortly thereafter and booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of aggravated burglary and theft.

Apartments in the 1100 block of Louisiana were also the site of a Dec. 2 armed robbery. Three females reported that two men, one with a gun, broke into their third-floor apartment at 12:30 a.m., stealing a cell phone and a T.V. Police described the suspects as two black males of college-age and average stature. No arrests have been reported or announced in that case.

red_devil, in many states you would probably not get indicted for shooting an invader inside your home. I'd think Kansas would give you a pass on that. Remember to aim at the suspect's center-of-mass and keep firing until the threat is neutralized.

The way I heard it, red devil, and I may be wrong so if there are any brilliant legal minds out there let us know, but they have to be inside your home and you have to feel the threat of imminent bodily harm and if that's the case then fire away!!

kubacker posted: Those four are Topekans who moved to Lawrence for the easy pickins! Might want to re-think that logic those four got caught so maybe they should have stayed in Topeka. Not so easy if they got caught by the police.

It is the Christmas season... rather than buying your son or daughter a new Lap top or Coach bag. You may consider a nice nickle plated handgun and membership to a local club.

Nice shot in Topeka.

Breaking story in Topeka that a tenant shot and killed an intruder who kicked down his door to gain entry last night. Someone was quoted as saying people wait in line to practice at the shooting range over there. That's probably why the Topeka thugs are coming over to Lawrence, they figure most students aren't armed to the teeth.

They must not have found what they were looking for in the Dec 2 robbery. Do you think some others thought it might still be there, whatever it was?

somebodynew, Just updated the story with some info. about the incident I believe you are referring to. However, don't think it's the same suspects. The description of the suspects in the Dec. 2 case were black males, while a social media site search of the names booked in the jail for last night's robberies show the two male suspects as being white.
