Two arrested after residents report burglary, suspicious SUV

Police arrested two men as suspects in connection with one of three commercial burglaries in the past week.

Arrested at 2:42 a.m. on Nov. 8 were Joshua Lee Roebuck, 27, and Zachary Mitchel Johnson, 21, for second-degree burglary, third-degree theft and second-degree criminal mischief.

The neighbors stepped up and called in a suspicious vehicle, said Police Chief Jeff Lynn.

A resident reported a dark-colored Suburban pulling onto 41st Avenue. The occupants of the vehicle got out of the vehicle and left.

Officers were already en route when the resident told police the alarm at Midway Grocery had activated and the two subjects were running back to the vehicle, Lynn said.

At 8:40 p.m. on Nov. 9, police received a report of a burglary at the Bohemian Tavern, 1025 Long St. The burglar or burglars gained entry by tearing a hole in the back wall of the office, Lynn said. For purposes of the investigation, Lynn did not report what was stolen.

At 8:10 a.m. on Nov. 5, police received a report that Sunshine Espresso, 1209 Main St., had been burglarized.

Someone broke into the bathroom and stole a box full of first-aid kits that were part of a fund-raising effort by Sweet Home cheerleaders. Proceeds help individual cheerleaders pay expenses for the upcoming season.

The stolen kits were valued at $632.

Police continue to investigate the burglaries at Sunshine and the Bohemian.

Police also are investigating a pair of burglaries at the trailer park located at 4610 Main St. reported Monday morning.
