Two Men Arrested For Multiple Laramie Auto-Burglaries
The Laramie Police Department has arrested two Laramie men in connection with multiple auto-burglaries and Unlawful Entries that have occurred since August 8th, 2014 to present. Codey Nicholas Parsons, 19 years of age, and 18 year old Justice Klaus Ochs, were arrested today for multiple counts of Aggravated Burglary and Unlawful Entry.
According to Commander Cushman at the Laramie Police Department, the department cannot say at this time that the two are responsible for all the recent burglaries and unlawful entries, but they are connected to several of them. He adds that police were able to make an arrest after a good and timely report made by one of the victims of auto burglary.
Police have recovered some property; if you are missing any property from your vehicles or unlocked garages and have not made a report, please report the incident and see if the police have recovered your property.
Additionally, a 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 handgun in a black plastic case was hidden by the suspects but is no longer in the location where it was left. It is suspected that someone has found the weapon and may have taken it home. If you know where this 9 mm sidearm is, please call Det. Sgt. Terry at 307-721-3563.
This is an on-going investigation that will take time to connect evidence to each event. If you have any further information on these crimes please call 307-721-2526 and ask to talk to a detective.
