Two Wichita men arrested on robbery, burglary charges

February 12, 2011, 10:22 a.m. Updated February 12, 2011, 1:57 p.m.


Two Wichita men were booked into the Douglas County Jail Friday afternoon on warrants for aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery, according to the jail booking log.

Both men, ages 21 and 20, were arrested in Wichita, though the Lawrence Police Department was listed in the booking log as the agency responsible for the case. A Lawrence Police spokesman said he had no further information about the cases and could not confirm whether the cases were related. However, the case number for both suspects in the booking log is the same, indicating a connection.

Bond for both men was set at $50,000.

i believe kansas is kansas and the guys arrested may have agreed not to fight extradition but i think that's only between state's .so they were sent back here.that might be the answer.

KR - as long as they are in Ks., a jodge does not have to be involved. A Wichita PD would have technically made the arrest and transferred custody to LPD, who then transports. Plus looking at the jail log it was on a warrant.

Now you are correct in that there is a way that a magistrate could have gotten involved, but that doesn't happen very often. Now if it were from one State to another (Mo to KS) then extradition proceedings have to take plac.e

KRichards, I updated the article in an attempt to clear up the confusion. We can't yet confirm LPD made the arrest, though they are listed as responsible agency. It is surely possible that Wichita police arrested the men and they were brought back to Douglas County, etc.

Most likely Lawrence is the responsible agency as the warrant was issued here.
