North Platte Police are for looking a man suspected of burglarizing Winfield’s Coffee in North Platte while another man is in custody..

According to NPPD Public Information Officer Rodney Brown, Officers responded to Winfield’s, 202 S. Dewey, on the report of a broken front glass window at around 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday.  Upon arrival, Officers found the main door to the business shattered.

Further investigation revealed that the cash register had been stolen from the building.  Officers located the missing register and empty drawer in a nearby alley.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video and identified one of the suspects as Christopher Herring.  Brown said Herring had been cited earlier that morning for Theft by Shoplifting.

Unable to locate Herring, Officers spoke to a second suspect, 22-year-old Cory Rowan, regarding the burglary.

Following questioning, investigators determined there was probable cause to charge Rowan with Burglary.  He was transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center.

Herring is still at large, and police are asking anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact them at (308) 535-6789.  If you would like to remain anonymous, information on this or any other crime can be reported to Lincoln County Crimestoppers at (308) 534-8400 or 1-800-933-TIPS.

    “Unable to locate Herring, Officers spoke to 22-year-old Cory Rowan about the burglary at around 3:00 a.m. on Thursday.” The cops spoke with Rowan at 3am or they spoke to him REGARDING the 3am burglary? Also, are you reporting that there were two robbies, both at 3am, one on Wednesday and one on Thursday? I’m sorry, this is incomplete journalism, Scott.

      Niccole, police spoke to Rowan about the Winfield’s burglary Thursday morning at 3am. Rowan and Herring are both suspects in the Wednesday morning burglary of Winfield’s. Thanks.

      Niccole, police spoke to Rowan about the Winfield’s burglary Thursday morning at 3am. Just a coincidence that it was the same time. Rowan and Herring are both suspects in the Wednesday morning burglary of Winfield’s. Thanks.

    I am so happy to know that he is going to prison…AGAIN! He is a vile, brain-dead, meth-head, diseased, all around DISGUSTING person. Go get him officers! Trust and believe he’s beyond stupid so he shouldn’t be that hard to catch. I mean come on, how much money did you think that register was gonna have?! AND they identified his face via security camera, meaning he would have had to look directly into the camera without some sort of mask…DUMB!!!!!!
