Hutchinson mayor helps nab thieves

February 8, 2012


— Hutchinson Mayor Ron Sellers found out what it's like to be a crime fighter and a crime victim on the same night.

Sellers called police early Tuesday when he saw suspicious people in his neighborhood. Police responding to his calls recovered property from several burglaries in a car the thieves left behind when they fled.

Some of the stolen items came from Sellers' home. The mayor said he didn't realize his house had been broken into while he and his wife slept.

Sellers told the Hutchinson News that the thieves took two computers from his home.

Police Capt. Troy Hoover says Sellers' calls help police clear several residential and vehicle burglaries that occurred overnight Tuesday. One 19-year-old Hutchinson man was arrested and Hoover says he expects more arrests.
