(Neb.)-Chadron Police Officers Arrest Two In Cheema's Burglary Case
(CHADRON)-An early morning burglary last week at Cheema’s Liquor Store in Chadron has resulted in the arrest of two individuals. Around 4:00 a.m., on Friday, August 30th, Sergeant Jarvis Wallage with the Chadron Police Department found the glass door at the front of Cheema’s broken in. Sergeant Wallage discovered a burglary had occurred. The subjects had taken liquor and cigarettes and fled the area. The burglary was similar to two other recently attempted burglaries at Cheema’s where a subject had taken a rock and tried to bust out the front door glass on July 28th and August 23rd, 2013.
Chadron police officers, working together with the store owners, had previously installed a law enforcement video surveillance system inside the business after the other attempted break-ins. The surveillance video from early Friday morning led police to 37-year-old Orlando Roan Eagle and 27-year-old Jon Short Bull. The subsequent investigation led to the arrest of Roan Eagle and Short Bull for burglary, a class III felony.
The police are following up with Cheema’s to determine the amount of merchandise taken and damage to the front door. Lieutenant Rick Hickstein says, “This is a good example of the Chadron Police Department working hand-in-hand with our local businesses, as well as using technology, to solve and prevent crime. This investigation took us most of the day, and the officers’ and deputies’ hard work paid off. We were able to solve several crimes and put two offenders in jail.”
The Dawes County Attorney’s Office and the Dawes County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Chadron Police Department.
