Three teenagers, including one juvenile, were arrested Sunday morning in Southern Gage County in connection to a burglary that occurred on Walnut Road.
According to Gage County Authorities, a resident of Walnut Road called the Gage County Sheriff’s Office as he observed three men taking items from vehicles parked on his property. He approached them and recognized one of the men, 19 year old Patrick Adkins, while the other 2 fled. Adkins was arrested and charged with second degree trespassing, possession of stolen property, theft by unlawful taking, and after admitting he was driving the other 2 around to steal items from other properties in the area, he was also charged with aiding and abetting burglary. The search was on for the other 2 boys involved in the burglaries, however it was called off due to the weather after several hours.
Officers did stop by a residence that the suspects were known to stay at and found two males matching the description of them and they were able to pull them over and arrest them around 9:30 Sunday morning. 18 year old Tyler Feagley and the 16 year old juvenile were arrested.
Adkins bond was set at $50,000 and Feagley’s bond was set at $25,000. Both will appear in Gage County Court on March 26. The juvenile was taken to a youth rehabilitation center in Lincoln.
Residents of rural Odell are being asked to check their residence for missing items that may have been taken by these three men. If you have any information, you may call the Gage County Sheriff’s Office at 402-223-5222.
