BEATRICE – Two people are under arrest as suspects in a burglary that occurred in Filley, not long after the incident happened early Thursday.
56-year-old Terry Ann Harris of Beatrice and 28-year-old Derek Reno of Lincoln were arrested after Gage County law officers stopped the truck the two were riding in, at the intersection of Filley’s Main Street with U.S. Highway 136.
Officers had responded to a report of a burglary-in-progress at about 2:30, this morning. A male and female were observed removing items from a home at 300 Peoria Street, and loading them into the bed of a pickup. The occupant of the residence, Devon Kagy, is in Gage County Jail and told law officers no one had permission to be on the property.
When officers stopped the pickup, they discovered several items in the bed of the vehicle, identified by the owner. Multiple electronics items, a bike and miscellaneous items were in the truck’s bed. Officers say the garage door at 300 Peoria Street had been ripped off its hinges. A side window had been broken out and a screen left lying on the ground. Authorities also say a back door to the home was open.
Harris and Reno were arrested on suspicion of burglary. Their court appearance bonds have been set at $7,500 each. Both face further hearing, November 15th.
