Sheriff’s officers searching for Lecompton burglary suspects

September 21, 2010


Douglas County Sheriff’s officers are looking for three suspects who burglarized Kroeger’s Country Store in Lecompton early Monday.

Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said three suspects, identified as males, shattered the front glass door with a concrete rock and entered the store, 505 Eisenhower Memorial Drive. Lewis said the suspects were in the store for a short time and stole several bottles of alcohol, a 30-pack of Bud Light and several packs of cigarettes. A surveillance camera filmed the burglary. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 841-0007 or Crime Stoppers at 843-8477.

you commit felony breaking and entering and all you take is Bud Light? I think we're dealing with some criminal masterminds on this one. Better call in the FBI. Put your ear to the ground, listen for the banjo music and smell for the bonfire and there you shall find stolen Bud Light.

Good to hear redneckery is still alive and well. Surprised they didn't snag some Sudafed for their meth lab.

"Le" French word for "the" "Comptom" birth place of many gangsters and thugs (so says about every rap song from the 80's and 90's)

Put them together and you have Lecompton, the French ghetto

Actually Kroegers is a local store and liquor store combined. So yes.......they sell cigarettes in the store part. This will be a large cost for the locally owned store. Very sad.........
