Police searching for suspects in Monday night burglary at 19th and New Hampshire

June 12, 2012


Lawrence police were searching for suspects in two vehicle burglaries reported Monday night in the 1900 block of New Hampshire Street.

Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said a relative of a victim about 11:15 p.m. Monday saw a woman inside the victim’s vehicle. After the witness yelled, the suspect ran into a nearby vehicle another person was driving. While officers were in the area, a second vehicle burglary occurred at 11:30 p.m., and a woman again ran away from a victim’s vehicle and jumped into a waiting vehicle as police approached her.

McKinley said the suspects drove toward an officer, who later got into his patrol car to pursue the car. A Douglas County Sheriff’s officer later spotted the vehicle along East 23rd Street and attempted to stop it. A short pursuit was later called off.

McKinley said the vehicle was described as a red four-door vehicle with at least two women inside. The suspect stole $310 worth of items in the two burglaries.
