A 22-year-old Lawrence man was booked into Douglas County Jail Wednesday morning on suspicion of aggravated burglary and theft.

Kevin Michael Shackelford Russell was arrested after Lawrence police responded to a 911 call related to an aggravated burglary. A 22-year-old woman reported waking up to hearing someone rustling around in her living room, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman.

When the woman entered the living room, she saw someone leaving the apartment with a box of items, at which point she chased and confronted him on a stairway leading out of the building. McKinley said the woman then began demanding the person return the stolen goods while hoping the commotion would alert others in the building. She later told police that she grabbed the box from him as well as a stolen camera from around the perpetrator's neck and a laptop power cord from his jacket pocket. The burglar apparently did not fight the woman during the process and fled the building once the woman returned to her apartment to call police.

Police located and arrested Russell in the area, and McKinley said all stolen items were recovered, including an Xbox game console, a Cannon EOS digital camera, several bottles of liquor, lighters, a "multi-colored glass pipe" and a black, metal grinder. McKinley said that Russell was also found to be in possession of a 24 BBQ Slim Jim Beef Sticks, which police determined had been stolen from the Kwik Shop at 845 Mississippi St.

"Russell was also found to be in possession of a 24 BBQ Slim Jim Beef Sticks" I would have to wonder if his fingers were yellow also from some cheetos

"several bottles of liquor, lighters, a "multi-colored glass pipe" and a black, metal grinder."

wow. just wow. Do people really call the police to report their drug stash got stolen? Seems like an all around bad idea. Reminds me of the episode of "COPS" I once watched where a man, being arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse, told the cops he had beaten his wife because she had flushed all his cocaine down the toilet.
