Three North Platte men who were just charged for burglarizing Ideal Linen, have been charged with yet another burglary.
On December 26, 2012 a citizen on East Kaneb Road reported a burglary to his residence. The citizen advised Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies that a grey safe was taken from his home that contained $23,000, credit cards and various vehicle and equipment titles.
Through a cooperative effort, investigators from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO), North Platte Police Department (NPPD) and the CODE Drug Task Force identified suspects in this burglary, as well as other burglaries in Western Nebraska.
On March 12, 2013, 29-year-old Cody Jolliffe of North Platte was arrested for his part in the burglary of the residence. Jolliffe was placed into custody at the Lincoln County Detention Center on charges of Burglary and Theft by Unlawful Taking.
Investigators say they continued to work the case and on March 13, a NPPD investigator contacted Terry Houchin, 29, and Jacob Moser, 24. Both subjects were charged with the Kaneb Road burglary.
Investigators say the stolen items were either spent or destroyed by the trio.
Jolliffe was also recently charged with burglarizing the Westfield Car Wash, and all three men have been charged with burglarizing Ideal Linen.
The investigation continues according to the LCSO.
